General Care of ornametns
Each piece of jewellery is very delicate so we must have to take care of them. So treat your jewellery with loving care and respect. It will stay young looking like most women. Remember to put your jewellery on after applying make-up and the hairspray and avoid contact with perfume.
Before entering a chlorinated pool remove all ornaments. Remove your jewellery when carrying out cleaning or other chores. Remove all jewellery if you’re contemplating a sauna as it will burn you when it heats up. Cleaning fluids can damage both the metal and the gemstones. Many gemstones are damaged by prolonged exposure to heat. A miss-hit with the hammer could end a beautiful relationship with not just your engagement ring.
Pearls come in a variety of colors and shapes
A high quality pearl will have a lustrous, shiny surface, strong reflections, and a good contrast between its light and dark areas. Pearls come in a variety of colors. That colors are white, gray, black and yellow. The shapes of pearls can be round, baroque, symmetrical, or irregular. The most exquisite and expensive pearls are the sphere-like round pearls.
But still your pearls should have minimal blemishes on the surface such as pits, cracks, or discoloration. Necklaces with pearls can have single or double strands. The single strands usually have larger, more expensive pearls than the double strands. Pearls that appear completely flawless are usually fakes. Authentic pearl earrings should match in size and their look and feel.
Gems are silicates which can be very stable, hard minerals. Like gemstones, one of the characteristics of a precious metal is its rarity. A few gems are oxides and only one gem, diamond, is composed of a single element, carbon. Often, new names will be created for ordinary sounding minerals which sound prettier or more valuable, such as Moldavite for the green variety of tektites.
It could not be "precious" if it were common! This means that the metal must be malleable, that it can be bent, hammered, or otherwise shaped. Two other characteristics are also important. There are also many gemstones that are not true minerals, but which are gemstone varieties of recognized minerals.
