Jewelry has been a part of this world for a long time and there are a lot of designs to choose from. The information below can get you started on choosing a jewelry item you are bound to cherish.

Use a polishing cloth to keep your jewelry clean and free from damage. With this method, you can simply shine it up and not deal with the hassle of using cleaners. You can use the two-sided cloth to polish your jewelry in the same way you would polish a drinking glass. First, you should use the polish side, then use the shining side to really make your jewelry look stunning!

Keep jewelry stored away and safely from both air and humidity. For maximum protection,

you can choose to store them inside of a small drawstring or a closed jewelry box. Humid air affects the metals in jewelry and causes tarnishing. It is possible to restore precious metals to their previous state, but it’s better to avoid damaging them in the first place.

When you go shopping for sterling silver jewelry pieces, take with you a magnet and a monocle. Use the magnet to detect fake jewelry real silver will not be attracted to the magnet, but the cheaper metals will. Another way to tell if a metal is sterling silver is to check for a hallmark stamp, for example, .sterling, .ster, or .925. Be wary of whether it is actually silver or not if you don’t see a stamp of any sort on a piece.

Always be aware of the type of stone you’re buying when dealing with gems. The three types are imitation, synthetic and natural. Both synthetic and natural gems are real, however, imitation is simply plastic. Natural gems are dug up from the ground, and synthetic gems are man-made in a lab.

For jewelry to stay shiny and new-looking, it is important to keep it from tarnishing. Don’t wear jewelry near water. If it is exposed to it too often, water can dull and rust some types of metal. To give jewelry an added layer of protection applies a thin layer of clear nail lacquer.

Costume jewelry needs special care. Often, stones will be glued into their settings, which makes them more prone to falling out than regular jewelry. Don’t submerge costume jewelry in water or clean it with harsh chemicals. The best care is to wipe with a warm damp cloth and then dry with another cloth. This will ensure that your costume jewelry looks perfect.

The tips we have given are a reliable guide to finding exactly the right jewelry for you. Reading about the various types of jewelry can make choosing the right item a lot easier.
