Adding Beautiful Jewelry Into Your Wardrobe
If you are a seller of jewelry, make sure you include some photos of what it should look like when its worn. Jewelry tends to look much different when you actually see it in use versus just sitting on a tabletop. Try getting a photo of a mannequin wearing it or have yourself, your staff or even your customers submit "modeling" photos of the pieces in use. This provides all of your customers a view into how things look with their sizing and how things dangle.
One way to tell the difference between a genuine diamond and a cubic zirconium is to perform a simple "fog test". To do this, you should breathe on the stone much like you might in the mirror to create fog. If the stone's surface remains foggy for more than two or three seconds, it is probably a fake. True diamonds disperse heat almost instantly, causing the fog to quickly disappear.
Rings, necklaces, and earrings should be stored in their original padded boxes whenever possible. If you no longer have the original cases, store each piece so that no two pieces are touching one another. This will prevent scuffs and scratches and protect even the most delicate pieces for many years to come.
A quick and easy way to update a favorite pendant is to slip it onto a new chain. If you are worried about finding a metal chain that matches your pendant, you can also slip it onto a cord of leather or a pretty stretch of ribbon for a more casual look.
Sometimes it takes only a little creativity to spot a fake diamond versus a real one. As many as 95 percent of real diamonds will appear bright blue under a black light (ultraviolet light). At least 99 percent of all fakes, such as cubic zirconium, will not appear blue when placed under the same light.
Make sure you don't wear your fine jewelry all of the time. When you are performing housekeeping tasks or washing your hands with soapy water, remove your jewelry. Swimming in a pool is another great reason for you to remove your fine jewelry to keep it safe. Everyday harsh chemicals can severely damage fine jewelry, sometimes ruining it beyond repair.
If you are looking forward to saving money on your jewelry, but not sacrifice on quality, you should pursue buying synthetic gems. These gems are created in the lab, and therefore, have higher clarity and fewer inclusions, and are identical to real gems on the molecular level and are typically less expensive as well.
If you are purchasing a diamond ring, it is always a good idea to ask to see the stone out of the setting. Generally, the jeweler will use the prongs in the setting to hide any flaws in the stone. While you may think you are getting a perfect stone, the prongs may be hiding a lot of flaws, so it is always better to check.
If you have gold jewelry, you should try to avoid storing them in areas around diamonds and other hard gemstones. These hard stones can scratch or damage your gold. If you keep your gold away from hard jewelry, you can keep your gold looking better for longer.
With the information you have just read, you will be able to enjoy and appreciate all types of necklaces, rings, and bracelets on a whole different level than before. Far from being just pretty little baubles, different pieces of jewelry have the power to transform and transcend like very few things can.
