The most obvious choice for jewelry to use with an evening wear is a pair of earrings.  One can forego of wearing a necklace or bracelet but never the earrings.  The reason for this is that it helps in directing the gaze of the people looking at you towards your face and not some other part of your body.  Especially if the pair that you are wearing is stunning, people will easily notice it.

How to Properly Store Your Jewelry

As with any jewelry you should keep pearls, gemstones and precious metals in a well crafted jewelry box or jewelry pouch. Items should be separated to avoid scratching as well as contamination and tangling.

Choosing a jewelry box

A jewelry display box should offer enough compartments to allow precious pieces to be stored individually. The box should also contain a soft lining which will prevent scratching.


Location

Jewelry needs to be kept in a dry location with low humidity. Humid and damp conditions will cause tarnish in silver and problems with other precious metals. Also consider the security and accessibility of the location you choose.

How to store gold and silver jewelry

Your two main priorities when storing your gold and silver are to avoid tarnishing/dulling and avoid scratching. To avoid tarnishing you will need to reduce the amount of moisture in the air. Store each piece of jewelry in a separate cotton or jewelry bag. The bag needs to be able to breathe, if the bag is air tight it may sweat which will cause tarnish. Good quality Jewelry bags and Paper Twine Necklace Display are usually treated with chemicals that reduce tarnish. A good quality jewelry bag will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. The pieces should be stored individually, if stored together the pieces will scratch each other. If available place a moisture absorbing product inside your jewelry box. White chalk, charcoal or silica gel will absorb the moisture which causes tarnish.

How to store diamonds

Diamonds are the hardest gemstone in the world. They are perfect for scratching other types of jewelry so once again keep the jewelry store in individual compartments. Diamonds are usually set in either silver or gold so you simply need to follow the instructions above.

How to store gemstones

Softer gemstones scratch easily, other types of gemstones crack and certain gemstones can also be damaged changes in heat. Store your gemstones in individual bags and keep them in an area with relatively stable temperatures. Certain porous gemstones like Emerald should not become too dry or they may in fact crack. For this reason these gemstones should be re-oiled every year or so depending upon your climate.

On the other hand, there are women who do not sit and wait for their men to go out and buy them a piece or two. These are the clever women who see jewelry as a great investment piece similar to buying a house or a car. Women see jewelry as an investment that they can enjoy while making sure that they are going to turn it into profit when the time comes that it needs to be liquidated.  So it is not uncommon to see women having a lot of earring display stands filled with pairs of earrings, some of which have not been worn at all.

When choosing a pair of earrings for investment, here are a few tips that you can be mindful of when choosing:

  • Make sure that what you get is the real deal – Only go to reputable jewelry stores and shops because you can never be too sure with the others.  These kinds of stores have a reputation and a brand name to take care of so duping the customers in making them think that they are buying real jewelry is the last thing on their minds.
  • Go for those that have stones set into the precious metal – Diamond studs and ruby chandelier earrings are great items that can be purchased as an investment.  Jewelry that is set with precious stones can fetch a higher selling price than those plain looking ones.  It will not be hard for you to liquidate it as people are easily attracted to these kinds of jewelry.
  • Think of the future when buying earrings – Whether or not you will be using it, the best thing to consider is the viability of the item.  Will it be easy to sell when the time comes that you already need the money? If the answer to this question is yes, then it is worth spending your money.
  • When buying diamond earrings, make sure that you know your for C’s.  – Diamonds are one of the famous stones that make it to the earring display on the window merchandise.  It does attract buyers right away but if you have no experience, read up on it or better yet, bring someone along that knows about it when you are going shopping.


Whether it be plain, studded with precious stones or hanging a meter from you ear, earrings are truly one of the easiest things to buy as they are quite affordable. However, you must choose well especially if you meant for it to become a heirloom piece or an investment in your future. Choosing well is the key to getting the most out of your investment.
