Bracelets are perfect accessories
Jewellery manufacturers have developed, experimented and innovated the age-old traditional jewelry that is in sync with the modern fashions, styles and trends. The classic black dress that's worn for daytime takes on new dimensions once it receives some help from those seductive earrings and a dynamic bracelet making it ready for any evening affair or romantic date.
The artistic carvings and engravings on the metal make the bracelets popular in international export market. If you are wearing a business suit, turning that look into one that gets second looks can easily be accomplished by selecting a complimentary bracelet. They are perfect accessories to lend an outlandish look to the personality.
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.
Care for Antique Gemstones
Gemstones are a valuable part of any piece of antique jewellery. Common sense is the best preventative measure when caring for any antique gemstone. Although the metal components of ornaments often receive the most attention, gemstone care is equally as important.
Hairdryers should never be used to dry freshly-cleaned gemstones, and no pieces should ever come in contact with chlorine. It is crucial to protect antique jewellery as a whole, in order to maintain as much value as possible over time.
