Jewelry Shopping

Learning about jewelry like gold bracelet (gullarmbånd) definitely takes some time. It is one of those things that you really have to study to see what works with your skin tone and wardrobe choices. You also want to make sure you don’t end up spending too much on jewelry that really isn’t worth it. Here’s some tips to help.

Many people see jewelry labeled as sterling silver plated and oftentimes think they’ve hit the jackpot when they purchase it at a very low price. In this case unfortunately, you do get what you pay for. This type of jewelry only contains a very thin coating of sterling silver on top of a cheap metal which can usually be identified as copper. The jewelry will eventually tarnish and cause the copper to show through underneath with enough wear.

Stay away from cheap glass jewelry. Borosilicate and lampwork glass jewelry are a new rage. Many styles of this type of jewelry are popping up in malls all over the country. However the products labeled as high quality lamp work glass are nothing more than cheap imported glass goods. Such glass products are usually not kiln annealed which means that there is a high chance that the product can shatter, cutting your skin while you’re wearing it. Purchase glass jewelry from local artisans or reliable vendors that you know are selling quality products. If it’s too cheap, you know it is too good to be true. Good glass costs anywhere from the low forty dollar range up into the hundreds.

The size of the diamond is not as important as its cut and clarity. The personal preferences of the individual who will be wearing the diamond are of paramount consideration.

To take care of your diamond ring (diamantring) jewelry all you need is a baby toothbrush, ammonia, water and a soft cloth. You soak your jewelry in a little bit of ammonia mixed with water and then scrub it softly with the toothbrush. This will help remove all of the grime that builds up on it. Then rinse it off with water and dry with the cloth. It will shine like new after this.

Make sure that you get everything that your goldsmith online (gullsmed på nett) told you before you buy a diamond. This is important in case you find out that the diamond you were sold is not what they said that it was. Your receipt will be the only proof that you have.

Here is one simple test that will allow you to determine whether or not you are purchasing a real diamond heart jewelry (hjertersmykker). Just breathe on the stone, a real diamond won’t fog up. Just about any other stone you breathe on will fog up, including a cubic zirconia or other fake stones, but not a diamond.

Before you buy any jewelry or even watches (klokker), read tips like these so you can get a real feel for what you should be looking for and what things you should keep in mind. Building a jewelry collection is fun and the results are something that you can pass down for generations.
