Have you ever looked in the mirror early in the morning, and then felt like something was amiss? All of your clothing looks great, but where are your accessories? Or if you do have them, maybe they are just not the right ones. Then the answer finally comes to you; you aren’t wearing any jewelry. One strategic piece can bring a whole outfit together.
Avoid using harmful substances like bleach, ammonia, acetone, turpentine and the like to clean them. This will result in damage to both the stones and the metal of the piece.
Watch how you store your jewelry when it isn’t being worn. You can protect your jeweled investments with hooks, boxes and holders that keep each piece intact and prevent tangles. Resist the temptation to jumble all your pieces into a community box. Heavy pieces should not be placed in the same compartment with fragile pieces.
Make sure to store your jewelry away from humidity and air. For maximum protection you can choose to store them inside of a small drawstring or a closed jewelry box. Humidity and air tends to cause precious and non-precious metals to tarnish. Polishing will work to restore the color and shine for precious metals, but with non-precious metals, polishing will not help the change in color.
Do your research before settling on one diamond. Make a close-range examination of stones you find appealing, and contrast them with other likely purchases. Less-scrupulous jewelry sellers have many ways to enhance the appearance of a sub-par diamond, so you have to stay alert.
You can see in this article that jewelry can make the difference by giving your outfit a finished look. Well-chosen and well-maintained jewelry can be the key to making your appearance elegant, no-nonsense, or light-hearted. Then, next time when you’re deciding what to wear, remember to add some jewelry to your outfit.
