Jewelry Hacks That Will Change Your Life!

By on March 19, 2017

From impressive, fun statement pieces to exceptional personal heirlooms, there’s something about the power of jewelry that defines your outfit and makes it uniquely yours.

For every fashionable girl who’s attached to her ornaments, it’s vitally important to understand the best hacks to implement in your jewelry to keep them glowing for years. Here are few jewelry hacks that simply your life and costs next to nothing.

Determine your ring size

Cut a piece of paper and wrap it around your finger, marking the spot where the paper comes together. Measure the length of the strip with a tape or ruler, and follow the ring size chart available on the internet to determine your ring size.

Jewelry Hacks

Opt for darker and heavier metals

If you’re looking for cheap jewelry, then shop for something which is darker in color and heavier in weight. Avoid extremely flimsy and shiny pieces.

Shine like a diamond

Soak your diamond jewelry in a gentle scouring solution, such as normal water, with a few drops of dish soap. Remove the diamond from the solution and remove any residual dirt using a clean, soft toothbrush.

Unknot your necklace

Apply few drops of baby oil to the knot to make the chain slippery. Once it becomes slippery, it will allow the knot to tackle itself easier.

Place the necklace on a clean floor and sprinkle the knot in baby powder. It will loosen the knot and help you to free it with the help of a needle or pin.

Clean your silver jewelry

Rinse the jewelry with warm water and dry it. Take a ceramic bowl, make a paste with a teaspoon of baking soda, a dash of white vinegar, and a teaspoon of salt. Apply using a damp sponge. Leave the mixture for five minutes and rinse it.

Clean your gold jewelry

Mix few drops of mild dishwashing soap with two cups of warm water. Put the gold jewelry into the bowl and let it soak for about 15 minutes. Gently scrub it with a soft toothbrush to remove any remaining dirt.

Fasten your bracelet yourself

Here’s a great way to use a paperclip to fasten your bracelet easily and quickly. Thread the paper clip by the catch and clasp it together with your other hand.

Thread necklaces through a straw

There is a simple way to keep your bracelets and necklaces from knotting; you need to thread your ornaments through a straw and close the clasp.

Prevent your hair from getting caught in your necklace clasp

If your hair constantly gets caught in your necklace clasp, then you need to stop this issue as soon as possible. All you can do is to buy a short length of aquarium tube, snip off a small piece to cover the clasp, slide it onto the chain, and cover the clasp after fastening.

These jewelry hacks will surely change your life. If you like traveling and carrying different jewelry with you that often consume a lot of space, then you need to try clinging film. It preserves the moisture of the jewelry and keeps all your jewelry together.
