Below are some questions about jewelry and these questions always will be asked when someone shopping for jewelry…
What is The Most Appropriate Way to Clean My Jewelry?
If you take proper care of your jewelry, it can remain looking new. Remove your jewelry at night and put it in a safe place where several pieces will not rub against each other. Also, avoid contact of your jewelry with substances such as perfume, bleach, cosmetics, soap, hairsprays, etc. Gold jewelry may be cleaned in a bowl of water containing any mild liquid detergent. Use a soft brush to create lathers around the jewelry. Rinse the piece off – not over the drain, in a metal or plastic strainer. Dry your jewelry with a soft, lint-free cloth. More guidelines to cleaning your jewelry can be found in our jewelry care section.
What Points Stand Out when Viewing Jewelry Quality?
Unique care is required by some gemstones; however there are certain basic guidelines and characteristics that finely crafted jewelry have in common, regardless of the manufacturing method that was used to produce them. The jewelry shouldn’t have any pits, bumps, scratches or holes. All components of the jewelry should have a smooth finish. If the surface of the jewelry is supposed to be brushed or have a matte finish, it should also be smooth and uniform. The shine should resemble a mirror on every surface if it is polished.
What Makes White Gold White and What is It?
Gold with 100% purity is too soft for use in jewelry, so it is usually mixed with other metals or “alloyed” to make it harder. White gold is produced from the mixing of gold, copper, palladium, and zinc. Various shades of yellow gold can be created from the mixing of gold, silver, copper, and small amounts of zinc.
Why do Pieces of Jewelry that Look Nearly the Same Differ so Much with Price?
Several features can affect the value of gold jewelry. One-of-a-kind designer jewelry can be very costly. Different finishes can alter the value, such as matte or sandblasted. Also, heavier pieces can be more costly than lighter ones, as gold is often sold by weight.
