Sterling Silver Bangles

Sterling Silver Bangles

 

Today, more and more people are able to find different means of wearing jewelry and

accessories. There are a number of ways to accessorize or make a statement with your jewelry; one of these  ways is with different types of bangle.

In recent years glass bangles have found favor with both Bride and Bridesmaids at American weddings. A widow would wear a metallic bangle as glass bangles are the sign of a married woman, who has a husband that is still alive.

A bracelet is usually made with links whereas a bangle is a thick solid piece of jewelry that can be made out of anything that can hold its shape.

If you do have a Sterling silver bangle you will need to care for it properly. Keeping your Sterling silver bangles beautiful for many years to come requires very little effort.

Take care not to allow your silver to come into contact with chemicals like acetone, ammonia or bleach which can ruin your jewelry.

You can use commercial jewelry cleaners provided there are none of the above chemicals in the ingredients. Natural oxidation or tarnish often occurs on all silver, which can make your Sterling silver bangle look dull; using a jeweler’s cloth, sometimes also called a silver cloth, will often removed the tarnish by simply using a gentle rubbing motion. To prevent your sterling silver jewelry from scratching against other pieces and to also reduce oxidation store your silver in a tarnish proof cloth. You need to give your jewelry proper care and storage if you want it to last a lifetime.

Caring for Sterling Silver Jewelry

 How to care for your Sterling Silver Jewelry

 To avoid tarnishing, small cloth pouches may be used to protect a silver bracelet, along with a small zip lock bag or a separate compartment in a jewelry box. When cleaning your silver bracelet, never follow the myth of using toothpaste, for it contains small abrasive granules the scratch the silver bracelet. Silver in sterling silver bracelet reacts to sulfur and sulfides. Never allow your silver bracelet to come in contact with egg yolks for it will react to the sulfur dioxide. Another chemical to be wary of when cleaning your sterling silver bracelet is chlorine. Always remove your silver bracelet before entering a pool for it will tarnish black over time.

January Birthstone

Birthstone for January is Garnet.

Garnet, the January birthstone, derived its name from the Latin word granatus, meaning like a grain, which refers to the mode of occurrence wherein crystals resemble grains or seeds embedded in the matrix.  Garnet displays the greatest variety of color of any mineral, occurring in every color except blue. For example, deep red (Pyrope meaning "fire-eyed") vibrant green (Tsavorites), other colors  including purple, red, orange, yellow, green, brown, black, or colorless.

The use of garnets as a gem or gemstone can be traced to prehistoric times, where Jewelry made with garnet has been found as early as the Bronze Age (3000 BC) in burial sites. It is thought that early communities valued garnet and believed that it offered protections in the afterlife. Currently, the world's largest supply of garnets is the continent of Africa.

Legends, Myths and Healing Properties:

Garnet is a stone of romantic love and passion.  It signifies eternal friendship and trust. It is said to bring positive thoughts and boosts energy, and be excellent for manifestation. It can also assist mystically with success in one's career and building one's self-confidence.
