Things to Remember about Your Jewelry

The big day of your anniversary is coming up. You
decide to get jewelry for your spouse, but don’t want it to be like the other
pieces that you have gotten that just end up in the jewelry box collecting
dust. Not that your spouse is ungrateful, you just haven’t found the one
perfect piece that she can’t live without. You decide to go about it again this
year, but instead of going in blind you decide to learn all that you can about
jewelry and what it takes to own a beautiful piece that will last a lifetime.
You can always ask any of the jewelers in NYC for advice, but before you head
out on this adventure, keep a few of these things in mind.

If you want the piece to look beautiful for many years
to come, then you need to put in the work to keep it clean. It’s simple,
really. Just clean it as frequently as you want it to be shiny and sparkly and
you should be good to go. Even if you have an imperfect diamond, keeping it
clean will make it look even more beautiful than a dirty flawless one. Follow
the guidelines put forth about cleaning your diamond and then do it frequently.

Before you head out on the road, make sure that you
have a plan for the jewelers you will be visiting. Yes, you should visit
several to know that you are getting the best price. Just because a jewelry
store is always packed with customers is no indication that the prices are the
best. Generally, you will find that the national chains have much higher
markups than the independent jewelry stores do.
Some people don’t know that this is an option, but it
would do you some good to know. If your spouse has a beloved piece of jewelry
that was passed down from a family member but won’t wear it because it’s broken
or missing pieces, you can always bring it into one of the jewelers in NYC and have it rearranged. The setting can be changed,
the stones taken out, and the whole thing can be rearranged. Just be absolutely
positive that doing that would be okay with your spouse.
