Have you been thinking about venturing into the world of jewelry? There are a lot of things to consider when you are thinking about making an expensive jewelery decision for anyone that you care about.
Don’t clean your jewelry in harsh household chemicals like ammonia, bleach or turpentine. Doing so can damage the shine and luster of the stones on your favorite pieces.
When you are shopping for a diamond, make sure to shop around and compare. Take a close look at a truly top notch diamond, and then hold everything else you consider to that standard. There are many ways to make a diamond look better than it really is.
Pay attention if they usually wear studs or hoop earrings, white gold or yellow, and any other typical gothic jewelry that they wear. This will give you a good idea of where to start when purchasing that special item.
You want to ensure that your jewelry always looks its best so do everything you can to stop it from tarnishing. One of the best ways to keep your jewelry looking beautiful is to avoid wearing it in water. Water exposure can cause different metals to become tarnished, dull or rusted. Applying a very thin covering of clear nail varnish to your gothic jewelry offers an added degree of protection.
Going through a day wearing the jewelry will let you get familiar with how it hangs and whether or not it will be comfortable. It will also allow you to see if the item is durable enough.
You need to know how to care for each piece in your gothic jewelry collection. Every metal, setting, and stone has different requirements when it comes to care. Each piece is individual in its needs so don’t assume what works well for one piece will work well for all. Your jeweler can give you instructions on proper handling if you are not sure.
If the person you are shopping for is a unique individual, consider choosing a one-of-a-kind piece crafted specifically for them. Giving a gift that requires thought and creativity will make it even more special.
Now that you know more about jewelry, you will be able to make wise design and color decisions. If you choose quality gothic jewelry, you will enjoy it for many years.
