Do some research on the gem in your new piece of jewelry before you buy. There are different types of gems, including imitation, natural and lab produced. While both natural and synthetic stones are still real, imitation is just glass or plastic made to look like the natural stone.

Test it out by wearing it yourself; you don’t want to give a piece that will be uncomfortable or awkward for the recipient. It will also allow you to test the piece’s durability.

Do some research on the best way to clean your particular piece of jewelry. Each kind of setting, metal, and stone has its own particular maintenance need.
