If you think jewellery common sense was shared by everyone, you’d definitely be wrong. People make all sorts of mistakes when it comes to jewellery, and whether it comes at a cost to the person or the jewellery itself, these are easy issues to rectify. In this article, we take a look at two of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to wearing jewellery so that you won’t have to make them in the future.
Taking the time to clean things is important
We get it, showing off your exquisite diamond rings in Melbourne feels great. Although some people wear the same jewellery every day out of habit, it’s something that isn’t always flattering. It’s not just because you’ll inevitably look like a style repeater (sorry), but it’s more so the fact that wearing the same things so regularly will make them very, very grimy and dirty. Because the changes typically occur so slowly, lots of people don’t actually notice that their jewellery is getting grottier, and in the case of earrings it can actually cause some infections. You can still wear your jewellery on a semi-regular basis, but on those off days make sure to give them a little clean with some warm soapy water to ensure they’re in a better state than they otherwise would be. If you don’t have any other pieces to wear while you give your main collection a rest, perhaps consider investing in some – it’s a fantastic investment that you won’t regret, after all. A big clean of your jewellery should occur at least twice a year at the very minimum, regardless of whether you have anything else to wear or not.
Mixing it up is exciting!
If you’re going to wear something as fun and flashy as jewellery, you might as well make it as creative as possible. There are too many people who are completely complacent with the way that they wear their jewellery to the point where the same pieces they wear every day just become a part of them. This isn’t what jewellery is about – jewellery should be about experimenting and coming up with new and fun (and often unexpected) combinations with your pieces. This allows you to work out what works best for certain events – what you wear for work probably won’t work for a special occasion, for example. It’s also a great way to better demonstrate your personality, particularly if you love wearing fun and flashy pieces. Finally, mixing it up will allow your core wardrobe to go a lot further – something as basic as the same all black outfit can look completely different with a different set of jewellery.
Ready to conquer the world of jewellery?You don’t have to conquer it necessarily, but keeping these two tips in mind can help you look better and it can help you do a lot more with your jewellery (and it’ll stop you from wearing the same thing for the rest of your life). Exercising your creativity in these departments will also give you a better understanding of how to more effectively make more out of what you have, just as outfit swapping can show you how different articles of clothing can work with one another.
