It takes some know-how to choose the best jewelry pieces. You will now wonder where you can start.
Separate your jewelry for storage to avoid getting pieces tangled. A better idea is to keep the pieces separate by usingboxes and hooks, compartments or holders. Don’t just box all the pieces together in a pile. Fragile jewelry could easily be damaged by doing this, not to mention the nuisance of having to untangle necklace chains that could get caught together.
Your jewlery needs to be kept in a place where it is protected from humidity and air. Ideally, you should keep them in drawstring bags or in a jewelry box. When non-precious and precious metals are expose to humidity and air, they tend to tarnish. It’s better to avoid damaging them in the first place, though it is possible to restore precious metals to their previous state.
Take the time to notice what kind of jewelry they already wear. For example, if they wear earrings, are they hoop or studs? Do they prefer white or yellow metals? Paying attention to these aspects of their current wardrobe will help you make a purchase they are more likely to enjoy.
Research current trends, before adding a piece of jewelry to your collection. Getting a nice piece of jewelry is good, but getting it at a discount is even better.
Inquire about insurance for your jewelry when you purchase it from a jeweler. Insurance policies allow you to bring a defective or broken piece into the jewelry store for repair. You might find some jewelers who are willing to insure it against theft and loss.
Keep your jewelry free of tarnish to make it look its best. Don’t take your jewelry into the water, regardless of whether you are showering or hitting the beach. This could cause your jewelery to rust or become more dull. If you are looking to protect your jewelry from the ill effects of water, try applying clear nail polish, just a thin layer, on the piece itself.
If you are wanting to collect costume jewelry, you should ensure you are aware of its condition. Many costume pieces are a great investment and can be quite costly, but costume jewelry that has too many signs of wear will not keep their value over time. A piece in good condition will be much more resourceful to you in the future.
Once to see if it will hang on you right you should wear and try the jewelery. You will also have the knowledge that the piece is not going to fall apart the first time the receiver wears it.
The stone is an important part of a piece of jewelry so should be considered carefully. Any stones that you choose should go with your skin tone and reflect your personality. Neutral colors work better to match all your clothing. Do not buy something that looks nice on the shelf but that you will never use.
Clearly, selling and buying jewelry successfully requires ample amounts of effort and research. These suggestions will help you to make intelligent choices in the jewelry market.
