How to Keep Your Jewelery Looking New

When you first buy a piece of jewellery, whether it be a costume necklace or a precious gold ring, it's always bright with any stones untarnished and sparkling. But how do you keep it that way?
Well if you follow these top tips, your jewellery will stay beautiful:

1. Store your jewellery pieces apart so they don't get tangled- we love silk jewellery wraps for their functionality and touch of boudoir glamour.
2. Make sure your costume jewellery avoids contact with abrasive chemicals such as nail varnish, perfume and hairspray, as these can cause it to quickly tarnish or become discoloured.
3. Keep any pieces with precious or semi-precious stones way from direct sunlight to avoid fading. Nothing ruins a piece of jewellery like faded stones that were once bright and beautiful.

Can You Improve Your Appearance by Wearing Jewelery?

This is a question that some would agree with and many would disagree, but could it be a question of taste? If we look at this world we would notice that most people are seeking the most attractive and beautiful person to be their life partner. In that idea we could see that appearance would be a key factor in the choosing of a spouse. So with this in mind does jewelry affect appearance?

If we look at the way people look to improve themselves we see that some men would go to a gym and endure hard work outs with weights in order to gain large muscles. This could be in the hope to attract a beautiful attractive female. Like wise a woman would go to a gym to tone her figure and to get her body in good proportion in the hope of attracting a handsome healthy strong man to be her partner.

So with this in mind, could it be the case that having beautiful jewelery may also add to a persons appearance and allow that person to be attractive to the opposite sex.

If you look at people looking for a life partner, you could note that they visit certain places where they may attract the opposite sex. You see groups of either young men or groups of young women traveling on a Friday or Saturday night to a club or party. This ritual would appear to have the motive of attracting the opposite sex. For example you could see groups of men at local train stations wearing a smart pair of trousers and a smart shirt waiting for a train to take them into central London. You may also see groups of women dressed attractively traveling to similar venues.

Handmade Jewelery For Creative Fun

Handmade jewelery is not only likely to be an original piece of craftsmanship, but it can be every bit as professionally crafted as a store bought item. People have been adorning themselves with handcrafted items since the dawn of time, whether in the form of feathers, bits of bone or shells taken from the sea.

Today the savvy shopper can craft one-of-a-kind original handmade decorations with a wide variety of items. Beads have been a traditional favorite since time immemorial and now you can create a beautiful necklace or bracelet with beads made from every conceivable material. Ceramics, wood, metals like silver, gold and copper and even beads of stone or semi-precious gems can be used to create beautiful jewelery.

Early man may well have used woven yarns, plant fibres and sinews to create necklaces, but thanks to advancements in modern technology we have access to top quality products. Chains can be made of finely linked sterling silver, titanium, yellow, white and rose gold or leather thongs and woven yarns of superb quality.

Is the Jewelery You Wear a Matter of Taste?

If you look at the things that you wear you would notice that there are somethings that you love and other things that you feel are just OK. When it comes to your jewelery the matter could be about the same. If we look at the media they show various products that could make our lives more enjoyable and fulfilling. The better the advert the more we may consider that we need to purchase that item. So if the jewelery we have is a matter of taste, how do we develop that taste in the first place?

Life of your dreams

If you consider that in the many films that are watched you would see that the characters may be wear beautiful and wonderful jewelery. The life style of the characters could seem as those they are living the life of their dreams. So seeing these types of images on a regular basis could have the effect of the viewer wanting to live a similar life style. These movies could tend to portray people with great wealth as being very happy. Hence the viewer may at a sub-conscious level of the mind feel that if they had the things that the characters in the films have would cause the viewer to be also happy.

Is it all about how we think?

So is the jewels that we like just a matter of taste? It is interesting to consider where that taste is coming from. And it would be useful to understand how taste is developed. Because if you can develop a new taste then you could well be enjoying new things. When we come down to it, could everything all be just related to the mind? If you consider some thoughts make you feel good while other thoughts cause you to feel bad. So could what we really need is the ability to control our thoughts and our way of thinking. If we can change our life by the way that we think, then we could in theory be living the life of our dreams just by changing the way that we think. Some philosophers have suggested that by forming a clear picture of the life that we want to live could be the first step in imprinting the idea on our mind. If this is the case then you could begin to change your life by thinking on different things.

So think about the jewelery that you currently like. Now look back in your life to see where you first thought of that type of jewelry. It could be useful to consider what did you feel when you first saw that jewelry and who was wearing it. Could by looking at how you developed your taste allow you to develop and change your taste for different jewellery at will?


So perhaps the type of jewelry we wear is a matter of taste, but by the same token we may also be able to change our taste by virtue of changing the way that we think. And say if we change the things that we are influenced by, this could in turn change our taste. What are you views on this point? Do you feel that you can change your taste in jewelery by changing your thoughts and the things that influence you?
