If you don't have any jewelry cleaner handy, try using toothpaste with baking soda to help clean tarnish off of your sterling or pure silver jewelry. Just rub the toothpaste on the tarnished area with a soft cloth and clean off. Make sure to dry the jewelry to prevent future tarnishing.

 

If you are considering a titanium wedding band, remember that it cannot be re-sized and may be a bit more difficult to cut off in an emergency than rings made from precious metals. Titanium rings are less likely to bend or crush under pressure, however, so an accident that would heavily damage a gold or platinum ring may not harm a titanium one.

 

To clean up a piece of vintage jewelry, use a window cleaner. Spray a small amount of the window cleaner on s soft, lint-free piece of cloth. Gently rub the cloth against the jewelry until it sparkles. Vintage jewelry is often found in poor condition, and using this cleaning method can make it look new.

 

Costume jewelry needs special care. Costume jewelry is often put together using glue and other adhesives, unlike stoned that are set using metal. You want to avoid using strong chemicals or immersion baths on your costume jewelry. The best care is to wipe with a warm damp cloth and then dry with another cloth. This will clean off any residue and make it look like new, without damaging it.

 

One way to ensure that your jewelry stays clean is to put it only after you have applied your make-up and it has had time to set. Makeup can gravitate dust and grime towards your jewelry leaving it to look dull. Doing this is particularly important when you are wearing a necklace or earrings, as they will brush against your makeup more than other jewelry.

 

To convey a sense of physical prowess, energy, passion, and love, look for pieces that incorporate deep red stones like rubies and red garnets. Red is an especially powerful color that is best suited to bold rings and necklaces that allow the stone to take center stage. Rubies are also popularly known as the birthstone for the month of July.

 

If you have pearl jewelry, you can add to their preservation by putting on perfumes and lotions first ,then after they're absorbed into your skin, put your pearls on. Since pearls are porous, these products can be absorbed into the pearl, which can cause it to lose its natural luster.

 

If you take proper care of your necklaces, rings and other pieces, you can ensure that each item looks brilliant and holds its value through the years. Properly caring for your jewelry is crucial to preserving it and any attached memories. There is a vast amount of information that you can find about jewelry. The more knowledge you gain, the more you will learn to value and appreciate each unique piece in your collection.
