If you are completely new to the world of buying or selling crystal jewelry, then you are probably thinking that some tips on what you need to know about jewelry will help you immensely. Listed below are some tips to help get you started with your jewelry buying or selling endeavors.

When choosing crystal earrings, test the weight in the store. You can't -- and shouldn't -- try them on, but holding them in your hand may be able to tell you if they're too heavy for all-day wear or just too heavy. Heavy earrings will eventually become painful. No matter how nice they look, you won't want to wear them if they're not comfortable.

When you are deciding what type of jewelry to buy for a loved one, it is important that it is something that they will love passionately and adore for the rest of their lives. This is not something you want to decide hastily. If you do, they may very likely not like your gift.

Ask about a jeweler's insurance policy before buying anything. Insurance policies allow you to bring a defective or broken piece into the jewelry store for repair. Some jewelers even offer insurance for jewelry pieces that have been misplaced or stolen.

Repurpose your jewelry to get the most wears out of each piece. Wrap a necklace around your wrist to fashion a new bracelet. Slip a pair of clip-on earrings onto a pair of pumps as shoe clips, and add a bit of sparkle to plain heels. Attach a pin or brooch to a necklace and update its look.

Take proactive steps to minimize the number of times that you have to clean your jewelry. When getting dressed, put your jewelry on after you apply perfume and makeup. This will prevent the residue of these products from leaving a film on your jewelry. Also, remember to remove your jewelry before cleaning and doing other housework.

If you have pearl jewelry, you can add to their preservation by putting on perfumes and lotions first ,then after they're absorbed into your skin, put your pearls on. Since pearls are porous, these products can be absorbed into the pearl, which can cause it to lose its natural luster.

If you have your jewelry insured, be sure to take good pictures of it. This will help when dealing with the insurance company in case something should happen to your jewelry. It can really help speed the process up and help you get through the insurance red tape. It also helps document what you have in case your home gets broken into.

Be sure to ask the person you are dealing with at the jewelry store if the gem you are trying to purchase has been treated in any way. A lot of times they are treated to make them look better and last longer, but that decreases the value of the gem.

As you can see from the above list of tips, buying or selling crystal jewelry can be quite an adventure, as there is so much to learn about before starting either process. After following these tips, you will no longer be new to buying or selling jewelry, but you will become an a bit of a jewelry expert.
