Find a Gem With These Jewelry Buying and Safekeeping Tips


Nov 2, 2016
Jewelry has been popular for thousands of years and there are literally millions of designs to choose from. Are you looking for silver wedding rings or white gold necklace? Or perhaps you are attracted to costume jewelry? You can find any piece of jewelry you will love by using the following tips.

Before you make a final jewelry-buying decision, take a look at what's new and trendy. If there is one thing better than a beautiful piece of jewelry, it's finding that jewelry at a great price!

If you can prevent your jewelry from tarnishing, it will surely look much more attractive. Don't wear jewelry near water. Water exposure can cause different metals to become tarnished, dull or rusted. You can give your jewelry an additional layer of protection by applying a thin coat of clear nail polish to it.


Now this one would make sense more: remove your jewelry before swimming. Chlorine can damage the life and luster of your jewelry. Over time, salt water can also cause damage. Taking it off before you swim will protect your jewelry and keep it looking beautiful for years to come.

You want to avoid using strong chemicals or immersion baths on your costume jewelry pieces. Many embellishments on costume jewelry are only secured with glue rather than set into the piece. The best way to care for your jewelry - and any type, that is - is to use one damp cloth to wipe it followed by a dry one to dry it.

If you're giving a special person in your life a present, you should consider buying a jewelry set. For example, bridal jewelry sets come with discounts at many jewelry stores.

And there is nothing stopping you from splitting a set after buying it! Why not use pieces of a set for a series of gifts over multiple holidays? This way you can have a gift ready for someone months in advance and know that they will like it.

There is such a vast range of jewelry to pick from that it can all be a bit overwhelming. So make sure you do a little homework before you go shopping.
