Tips To Christmas Shopping For Sterling Silver Jewelry

With the holiday season fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about one of the most popular gifts to give to the woman in your life. You guessed it, the answer is jewelry. Even if you don't know her ring size, you can still treat your mom, sister, daughter, girlfriend or wife to the gift of glamor. Before you start filling those stockings, keep the following tips in mind when shopping for sterling silver jewelry this Christmas:

Buy what you like. If you like it, she will probably also like it. A general rule of thumb when shopping for anything, including jewelry, is to buy something for someone that you like yourself. If you're a woman, you already know what catches your eye in terms of jewelry and this makes shopping for your mom, sister, daughter or best friend an easier job. If you're a man who isn't quite sure what to buy for the lady in your life, look at the jewelry that she already wears. Is it understated, or does she prefer a bold look? What's her favorite color? Genuine gemstones and cubic zirconia are available in all colors of the rainbow, so there's a good chance that you can find a piece of jewelry featuring her favorite color.

Shop early. When December 1st rolls around, the stores will start selling out of their most popular items. If you're shopping for jewelry, don't wait until the last minute. Otherwise, you may risk being placed on a backorder status or even not being able to get the item at all. By shopping 2-3 months ahead of time, you will get the best selection before the holiday rush starts to gain momentum. Best of all, you can take great pride in knowing that you have the perfect gift and can sit back and enjoy the holiday festivities with ease.

Shop smart. If you aren't sure what ring size she wears, simply look for something that's universal. Specifically, a necklace or bracelet are smart picks in terms of jewelry gift ideas. If she has pierced ears, a pair of earrings are perfect because they are sure to fit.

Buy online. The internet is a terrific place to shop, especially if you find a retailer that specializes in the type of sterling silver jewelry that you're looking for. Almost Diamonds is one such shop that features everything from cubic zirconia to genuine gemstones, and everything is set in affordable sterling silver designs. From vintage to modern, there are styles to fit every preference and budget. Shopping for sterling silver jewelry online gives buyers the advantage of having a larger selection than they would likely find at their local jeweler.

How do I clean sterling silver with at-home ingredients?

I have a sterling silver necklace and it's completely brown. I don't have a polishing cloth or any cleaner for it. Any suggestions?

the best jewelery cleaner in the world, including precious stones, is simply denture cleaner tablets like "Steradent"

Drop a tablet in warm water with whatever jewels & metals you want cleaned & let the fizzy tablet do the hard work.

A few minutes later - up to 30 minutes soaking - just rinse it al off & you won't believe how clean & sparkling it all is, even fine grade chains for lockets etc.

One small box of tablets will last you for YEARS and you will always have them on hand whenever you want to clean your jewellery.

You can also use a toothbrush dipped in lemon juice & then dipped in salt and scrub the metal with this.
