The use of jewelry has varied in varied civilizations. Jewelry has served as amulets and body accessories. It has been the object of jealosy, the cause of countless murders, burglaries and ruthless betrayal. It has been inherited from grandparents. Jewelry first appeared in India. Nowadays a great number of people make a big profit by selling exotic handmade jewelry. If you have decided to buy jewelry, go to the reputable jeweler's. Below are a few pieces of advice on how to purchase jewelry. 1. When opting for metal jewelry, consider markings. Varied pieces of jewelry are marked differently. For example, if a piece of jewelry is marked as sterling silver or silver, it denotes that it contains leastways 92,5% of pure silver. If a piece of jewelry is tagged with "925", it means that it is made of pure silver. The markings "Plat" and "Pt" stand for Platinum - a metal that is lots more expensive and precious than gold. 2. If you wish to purchase a gem, ask a shop assistant if it is natural or artificial. Artificial gemstones look similar to natural ones. The principal unit of weight for gems is carat. 1 carat equals to 200 milligrams. 3. Insure that you have received a receipt where the measurements of a gemstone are written. Now after you have bought a piece of jewelry, keep and store it in the correct way to avoid any damage. 1. It is a must to keep gems separately, because rubbing against each other may cause damage. Store your jewels in a jewelry box. Or you may use an organiser box or ice cube trays which are far cheaper. Ziploc plastic bags with anti-tarnish strips inside are suitable to keep jewels in. Take into account that earrings should always be stored together. 2. Necklets and necklaces are strongly recommended to hang up. 3. Threads of beads should lay flat. 4. Keep jewelry away from heat. Store it at room temperature. Direct sunrays may also damage jewelry. If your house is located in a very dry climatic region, store opals beside a small container of water, as they require humidity. 5. It is strongly advisable to clean jewelry with a wet cotton cloth each time after usage. Observe the above mentioned tips on buying and storing jewels and enjoy wearing them.
