Blink Blink! Tips for Buying and Taking Care of Jewelry
Buy brightly colored jewelry to pair with the same black clothing. The same little black dress can
seem like a completely new and exciting outfit simply by adding different accessories. Brightly
colored jewelry will stand out against a dark color as well as giving you a dynamic look. When buying
jewelry, don't worry too much about current trends. Look for classic pieces that can be worn over
several years. Something that's too current will be quickly out of date. A stylish piece that you enjoy
but isn't the latest thing can be a part of your wardrobe for years to come.
Birthstone accessories make a fantastic gift for anyone at just about any time of the year. They are
highly popular and nicely appropriate for birthdays. There are so many variations of designs and
pieces that you can find or have easily created for yourself or someone you care about using a
birthstone. If you're having a hard time finding that right piece of jewelry, consider buying a stone
and consult a jewelry specialist. A jewelry specialist can design and style a setting specially for you,
based on your vision and preference. Your piece will be unique and possibly more noteworthy
because it is one in a million.
To keep your jewelry looking spotless and vibrant, put it on after your make-up is completely applied
and set. Dust and grime from makeup gravitates towards jewelry, and putting on your jewelry first
can make it looking dirty and dingy. This tip is particularly important when it comes to necklaces and
earrings. Wash your turquoise jewelry with warm water and a soft small brush. Never ever use
chemical substances on turquoise, as it is very vulnerable to damage. Just gently scrubbing it and
drying it with a soft dry lint free cloth can keep your turquoise sparkling and unharmed, making it
possible to last much longer than if you were to use any cleaning solutions.
When shopping around for diamonds, make sure that you evaluate them based on their four main
characteristics: color, cut, clarity, and carat. The color refers to the hue of the stone. The cut refers to
the way that the stone is designed, such as square and princess cuts. Clarity refers to the purity of
the stone. The carat refers to the weight of the stone. If you have a substantial collection of fashion
jewelry, make sure to only clean them with a moist cloth. Using polishing cloths or jewelry cleaning
solutions will eat away at the top layer causing the base metal to be revealed. After finished with the
cleaning, safeguard your jewelry in a velvet lined box to prevent any damage or tarnish.
Although some of the pieces may be eye-catching, you should steer clear from gold filled jewelry.
Regardless whatever the seller may say, gold filled jewelry may cause skin allergies and the colours
can fade away. When you intend to buy diamond jewelry it is important that you know the quality of
the stone you are trying to buy. Any certified and knowledgeable jeweler will be able demonstrate to
you the quality of the diamond you are buying. From there, the prices are justified; the higher the
quality of the diamond the more costly it will be.
