1. Clean all of your jewelry with a polishing cloth

This is a very easy way to make them shine and not have to use any type of chemicals or solvents. Simply use the two-sided polishing cloth to polish your jewelry the same way you would polish a glass. Use one side of the cloth for polishing, and the reverse to make it sparkle.


2. Be careful when storing all your jewelry together

It’s better to keep pieces separate by using boxes, holders, hooks and other containers. Throwing the jewelry together into the jewelry box is a no-no. This can harm delicate parts, and tangle some pieces with others, like necklaces.


3. Be sure that you understand the kind of gemstone that is in the jewelry that you are purchasing

Gemstones now come in natural as well as synthetic and imitation types. Natural stones and synthetic gems are both real, but imitation gems are probably just colored glass or plastic. Natural stones are dug up out of the ground and synthetic ones are grown in a lab.


4. Always compare prices before purchasing any diamonds

Look at what you like close up, and compare them to other pieces you have seen. Be careful of tricks that jewelers use to make a diamond look bigger or better.


5. Try going to a jeweler that will make you a piece that will fit their personality and add to their flair

When you are buying jewelery for someone who is very different or eccentric. Finding something that shows you put thought and effort into the gift is more important the the gift itself, so whether or not what you choose exactly what they wanted, they are sure to be pleased.


6. Your belt will get a little pizzazz if you accent it with a brooch like this.

You have the option of placing it close to your hip, or at your waist near the center.

Whether that is to own a new piece, or to sell an old one for profit, the effort put in will equal what you get out. Keep all the tips fresh in your mind, and you will find success.
