What can you get out of jewelry? Are you familiar with different styles and metals? Can you differentiate between fine jewelry and costume jewelry? These tips can help you learn about the complexity of jewelry. Take the advice given here to determine how to care for, buy, and get great deals on your jewelry.

When you are shopping for jewelry in sterling silver, be sure to examine the piece closely, and take along a magnet for metal testing. Take the magnet with you to find fake pieces of jewelry, sterling silver will not stick to the magnet. If there is no hallmark, watch its authenticity since it may be fake, there should be a stamp hallmarked that says something like .925 sterling or ster, on sterling silver.

Compare lots of diamonds before you settle on one to buy. Take a good look at all the pieces that you like, examining them and comparing them to each other. Keep an eye out for deceptive tricks to cause you to think a diamond is better than it actually is.

Give the jewelry a test-run by wearing it for a day. Does it feel comfortable and hang properly? It will also allow you to test the piece’s durability.

Find out what the ideal methods are for maintaining each piece of jewelry you own. Jewelry is composed of different metals and stones, and settings that all require different care to be properly maintained. Something that may help one piece of jewelry might hurt another one. If you can’t find proper treatment methods, try consulting with a professional jeweler.

When you are buying jewelry for someone who is very different or eccentric, try going to a jeweler that will make you a piece that will fit their personality and add to their flair! Besides affection and admiration, an ideal jewelry gift expresses creativity and thoughtfulness. A custom-made piece selected to suit the recipient’s personality is an excellent way for you to demonstrate these feelings.

A brooch can add visual interest and an accent to an otherwise dull belt. Pin it in the front or at your hip.

Untangling knotted chains can be easy if you know how to do it. While it can be frustrating untangling metal necklaces, consider using plastic wrap. Put the tangled necklace onto the plastic wrap, then pour a little mineral oil or baby oil onto the piece. It is possible to untangle very snarled necklaces with a needle. Clean with warm, soapy water and gently pat dry.

Use these tips whenever you purchase a piece of jewelry for your personal collection or to give as a gift. You can save money and get a beautiful piece at the same time. Becoming a jewelry expert takes education about the art, and learning experiences.
