  • Where You Buy Your Jewelry Can Make A Big Difference

    custom packaging Before you buy any item of jewelry, have a think about what your longterm plans are for it. Think about your most-worn wardrobe pieces when choosing jewelry.

    You will want to buy a choker style necklace that is at least sixteen inches in long to have thebest possible necklace. This is the usual length, but you can obtain a more specific size bymeasuring your neck and subtracting an inch. Through this method, you will get an ideal fit.

    If you are interested in collecting costume jewelry, be sure to stay conscious of the condition.Well-done costume jewelry is often worth the price, but if it's worn out or visibly damaged, itwon't be worth the effort it takes to restore it. A piece that is free of any defects or wear notonly looks better, but is also a better investment.

    If there are knots in your necklaces, you can easily untangle them. It's easy to get frustratedwhen trying to get the knots out of a badly tangled necklace, but try using some plastic wrapbefore you call it quits. Put the necklace on the plastic wrap and add a little mineral oil orbaby oil. It is possible to untangle very snarled necklaces with a needle. When yournecklaces are straight, use dish soap to wash the oil off and pat them dry.

    Determine the role you wish your jewelry to play in each outfit. Which item do you want tostand out more? Do you want the outfit that you are wearing to stand out or the items ofjewelry that are adorning it? Decide on this before you select your pieces.

    Surprise your sweetheart and express your admiration with a lovely piece of jewelry. Manywomen love surprise gifts, especially ones that glitter. Making an unexpected gift of jewelry isa treat for you too, because you will treasure the memory of seeing her delighted and awedby your thoughtful present.

    Mixing gold and silver pieces has become a very popular look for wearing jewelry. To pull thisoff, you need to buy a jewelry piece that contains both metals at once. If not, your look willappear uncoordinated.

    Unfortunately, if you are dead set on real gold jewelry, you will run into the problem of highprices. If you must have a gold bracelet or ring, consider looking at a piece with fewer karatsin order to spend less money. The best deal you will usually find is a piece of 18 karat gold,which is at least 75% pure gold.

    Plug the drain when cleaning your jewelry near a sink. It's all to easy to lose that preciouspiece as it slips from your soapy hands. If the drain is plugged, then your jewelry will stay put,and you don't have to worry about losing it.

    Gemstones are now sold as either laboratory-created or synthetic stones. Synthetic stonesare virtually identical to natural ones. The main difference is cost. Since these stones areartificially created rather than dug out of the ground, they can be offered at a lower price.
