. You may learn how to give better jewelry gifts, how to wear and care for your own jewelry, and more by reading the tips below.

Take a polishing cloth to each piece of jewelry in your collection. This is a natural way to shine all of your jewelry without relying on abrasives or other harsh chemicals. You can use the two-sided cloth to polish your jewelry in the same way you would polish a drinking glass. Use a two-sided cleaning cloth, one for polishing and one for shining.

Separate your jewelry for storage to avoid getting pieces tangled. You should keep the pieces separate in compartments, boxes and holders and on hooks for better storage. Never simply throw piles of jewelry in a box. This does damage to jewelry pieces, which are often fragile. Necklaces lumped together can get tangled up into a knotted ball.

Bring a magnet when shopping for sterling silver jewelry. Jewelry made with non-precious metals will be attracted to the magnet, revealing any fakes. There should be a stamp hallmarked that says something like .925 sterling or ster, on sterling silver If the item has no markings indicating its authenticity, then be wary.

Do some shopping around when you are looking to buy some diamonds. Take a close look at a truly top notch diamond, and then hold everything else you consider to that standard. You need to have a keen eye because of the many tricks people will use to enhance it with diamonds.

 

Do they prefer to wear over-sized pieces or more delicate styles? Yellow gold or silver? These types of observations will provide a starting point to purchase an item they’ll cherish.

Make sure you take precautions to stop your jewelry from losing its shine. For example, avoid taking your jewelry somewhere it can get wet. Many types of jewelry become dulled or tarnished when they are exposed to water. You can give your jewelry an additional layer of protection by applying a thin coat of clear nail polish to it.

Understanding jewelry will help you make informed choices the next time the occasion arises. You’ll be able to buy the right item for the best price, ensuring you’ve made the best decision, and that the piece lasts a lifetime. Having good taste is about being exposed to this art and being educated about jewelry.
