There are a lot of different options when you are picking out jewelery. These suggestions can help you pick out a piece of jewelry that you will enjoy for years.
Take a polishing cloth to each piece of jewelry in your collection. This is an easy way to get shine without chemicals and solvents. It’s easy, just use the dual-sided cloth to wipe down your jewelry, just as you would polish a beautiful glass. The first side is designed to polish, while the other is for adding shine.
Be cautious of storing all of your pieces of jewelry together. Boxes, holders, compartments, and hooks are all valuable tools for storing jewelry safely. Avoiding piling your nice jewelry pieces into one big heap in a box. Not only will your necklaces become hopelessly tangled, you risk harming any fragile pieces as they bump and scrape against each other as you search the box.
Keep jewelry stored safely and away from both air and humidity. A jewelry box or drawstring bag out of a humid area is ideal. Humidity and air tends to cause precious and non-precious metals to tarnish. Silver polishes work well to remove tarnish, but certain metals, such as bronze, may not polish well. The polish may remove the surface coating and then the metal underneath, such as copper, becomes visible.
What color gold do they seem to favor – white or yellow? Do they normally wear a bracelet? What type of earrings do they prefer – drop and dangle or studs?

The information above will give you guidance for the next time you go out shopping for jewelry. There is a vast array of jewelry pieces available making it a bit of a challenge to select, give or care for one properly. Reading up on jewelry is a useful way to spend a little time educating yourself.
