You know, I never do a monthly review.  It would be great to see what’s been going on and give you a summary of what you may have missed.  I usually post updates on IG (FB has been a bit of a buzzkill because it doesn’t share everything with my fans like IG does).

So here’s what’s been going on in the marvelous month of May!

I had a ball meeting new people & helped with their sidewalk sale.

Are You Taking Proper Care of Your Jewelry?

Tags

, , , ,

Are you experiencing any of the following?

Dents or dings in your ring bands?
Loose bracelet links?
Turning colors?
Breaks?

All jewelry is not created equal. Some pieces can withstand jumping jacks under an elephant and others seem to come apart with a cool breeze. Sometimes it’s the jewelry, sometimes it’s our personal habits. And there are many factors involved. Knowing these factors can also help us choose jewelry that fits our lifestyle and thus help us avoid regret.

Let’s look at what the cause may be to the damage you’re seeing.

Are you wearing your piece while doing any of the following?

Sleeping
Links, toggle closures, posts and brackets can get hung, bent or broken while we toss and turn in our sleep. Not to mention they could come off and get lost! Remove them before you turn in.wsedfcv

Leaving jewelry tangled or balled up
This can also happen while sleeping, being improperly stored or if wearing it during vigorous movement. Store laying flat with no knots in a linear manner to avoid kinks and breaks.

jewels_p1

Hanging heavy or moderately weighted necklaces or bracelets
I can’t stress this enough. Hanging jewelry puts stress on the links, wires, fabric and closures. In cases where the piece is lightweight, it’s ok, but overall, don’t risk the longevity of your piece. Store it lying down.

Storing in direct sunlight
If your piece has fabric, this is key. Direct sunlight can cause discoloration and/or fading.

Wearing while jogging, doing dishes, using chemicals or operating machinery with moving parts
Sweat is acidic & dirt can cause wear on the finish of fashion jewelry. They can also dull the shine on silver & gold. Avoid chemicals, creams & lotions as well. Some have found that not cleaning their 14K gold rings caused an allergic reaction because of the lotion, dirt and sweat that collected under them. EEEEW! Once cleaned, the allergic reaction stopped. Be careful not to wear loose jewelry (or to be safe, any jewelry) when operating machinery that could pull it off or get caught.

Wearing while gardening, washing dishes, washing your hair, washing your car, playing sports or doing manual labor
Again, dirt, oil, creams, soap with stripping properties, etc. can damage your fashion jewelry or cause buildup on your fine jewelry and require cleanings. Remove these items to elongate their life.

Here are some facts about sterling silver:

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. (Hence the 925 stamp found on sterling silver jewelry)

Many precious metals are very soft, which is why they are often combined with something else to add hardness so they will last longer.

Sterling silver tarnishes in the presence of sulfides in the air, emitted by diesel engines. Often, because silver tarnishes, it is often mistaken for imitation or silver-plated material. A good cleaning using natural products or a good quality jewelry cleaner designed specifically for sterling silver will restore the sheen and shine almost immediately (there are cases where more than one cleaning may be necessary. Be sure to follow the instructions to avoid damage to your item-don’t dip stones!!

Here are some ways to organize your jewelry.  But notice the strands of pearls in the picture on the right?  They should be stored in a line, not rolled or wound.

clasp-bracelets-in-a-jewelry-box-drawer diy-jewelry-storage-ideas-drawer-sections

Silver Plate is a thin layer of Fine Silver placed over a base metal. Also known as Silver Tone, Silver Plate is often considered the most cost effective alternative to the more expensive forms of solid silver jewelry. That said, this form of silver is very thin, wears off easily and degrades in appearance quickly. (You won’t find these items in my selection for that very reason!)

Jewelry shouldn’t be worn in dirty conditions, wet conditions or in situations where a lot of movement will occur. This is especially true for intricate or lighter weight pieces. Even sturdier pieces can take a beating if put in poor conditions. So love on your jewelry & it’ll be with you for years and years to come!

New Haps at the Store!

, , , , , , , ,

So, I guess you could tell I’ve been busy by the huge gap in posts.  Yeah.  Well a lot’s been going on.  My grandmother, my last living grandparent, passed last week.  She lived a glorious 95 years and went out like the beautiful diva she is.  We were told that she sang a solo with the choir “On My Way Home” and passed peacefully that same afternoon.  So bless God!  She’s resting now in the Lord.  So that’s one thing…

The other thing keeping me busy is that I’m switching to a new, better online store!  Yes, I’ve struggled for years trying to make the current one easy for you and I, but finally had to come to terms.  It’s not.  So it’s being upgraded!!  Thanks for hanging in there with me while this transition is made.  I hope to be done with it by the end of the month.  Even if it’s not perfect I’m going to pull the trigger and get it out to you!  Also, the new site comes with a much cuter blog area, so I’ll let you know how that’ll work.  It’ll be at http://www.thejewelryladystore.com, and http://www.thejewelrylady.co will most likely just redirect there to the new blog address.  I hope you’ll follow me to the new location!

Last, Facebook is blocking many of my posts because they are promotional in nature.  I’m trying to not be snarky about it, but just keep pressing forward to serve you in a way that I can keep in contact.  So I’ve been much more active on Instagram.  Once the site is upgraded, you’ll see me even more there and on Pinterest.  I’m looking forward to the changes and being able to serve you sooo much better!!

So those are the haps my peeps!  Thanks for taking time out to hear what’s going on.  I’ll be back soon with more jewelry and how to style it.  Love ya!

Jewelry Must-Dos and Absolute No-Nos!

Tags

, , , , ,

Hi everyone!

Lately I’ve been getting lots of jewelry questions like:

How do I clean my jewelry?
How do I store my jewelry?
When should I clean my jewelry?
What should I avoid when wearing my jewelry?

IMG_20140805_120822476Well, I’m glad you asked!  I know these are not all of the questions you could have, but I want to keep this post short and sweet.  So off we go!

 

 

How do I clean my jewelry?
That’s a 3 part question because it depends on the material.  Let’s look at all 3:

Gold jewelry-be sure to use a cleaner that is specifically for gold.  Check to see if it is safe for stones!  I accidentally picked up one once for my personal use that was JUST for gold and not for any type of stones.  So I have to be careful to remember which cleaner is for what!  You can also use this natural method I found on YouTube.

Sterling Silver jewelry-same advice.  Be sure it specifically says sterling silver and check if it is ok for stones.  There are natural cleaning options (salt, white vinegar & hot water in an aluminum pan lined with aluminum foil works very, very well).  Here’s a YouTube video I used once before.

Fashion jewelry-Yes!  You can clean fashion gold and silver jewelry!  You just need to be careful.  If you’re cleaning a chain, check out this video.  If you’re cleaning the crystals or rhinestones, be sure to be EXTRA careful.  Some crystals and rhinestones are in settings, so they should be ok.  Just check the prongs of the settings after you’ve cleaned them.  If they’re not set in, be EXTRA EXTRA CAREFUL so you don’t break down the adhesive.  The last thing you want is clean, missing stones!

How do I store my jewelry?
I’m glad you asked!  I see people everywhere suggesting that you hang your jewelry.  However, I’m very much against it.  This puts unnecessary stress on the rings and strands of your piece.  The rings (unless they’re the type that are soldered together) are split and came come apart if pulled.  So we should avoid hanging.  This is not the case for very light pieces (a light chain and a small pendant, for instance).  Instead, you should try storing them in drawers.  Laying them out will keep them from getting tangled and allow you to view them easily like this:

clasp-bracelets-in-a-jewelry-box-drawer(Source: nubry. com)

This is demonstrated here with bracelets, but you can do the same with necklaces!  Imagine how much faster you’ll find and pick out your desired design!
diy-jewelry-storage-ideas-drawer-sections

When should I clean my jewelry?
Weekly would be great, but not everyone has the time.  Monthly is very good.  Some wait until they you realize it’s dirty, but it’s usually due for cleaning long before that.  Be sure to give yourself enough time ( an hour should be good unless you have a ton of jewelry) so that you don’t have to stop and start.  Getting on a cleaning schedule is a good idea.

What should I avoid when wearing my jewelry?
Try not to pass out:  cleaners, oils, perfumes or anything else that contains chemicals, essential oils or abrasives.  Avoid wearing your jewelry when you work out (sweat+jewelry=damage), garden (dirt=bad), swim (chlorine) or sleep.  I’ve woken up to the worst scratches on my neck from my lobster clasp scraping my neck as I tossed and turned all night!  Take it from me, just don’t do it!!  Not to mention you want to avoid breaking your necklace, tangling it or it causing choking (morbid but true).
