Tarnish is the enemy of silver jewelries. How about trying this methods:

1. For items that are merely dull, filmy or staring to discolor, mix a few drops of mild soap with warm water and dip in a soft cloth. Rub cloth wet with solution to jewelry, then rinse in cool water and dry using clean dry cloth.

2. For heavier tarnished silver jewelry, mix a paste of three parts baking soda to one part water. Wet the silver and apply the cleaner with a soft, lint-free cloth (don’t use tissue paper, this may scratch your jewelry). Work the paste into the crevices, turning the cloth as it gets gray. Rinse then dry.

Note: Don’t soak the silver, this will speed up the tarnish rather than removing it.

A gemstone bracelet can identify a person’s birth month, the birth months of their family or just a personal favorite gemstone. There are many gemstones that look great in a bracelets . The important thing for anyone to verify when purchasing a bracelet is to be certain that both the metal used and the gemstones themselves are high quality.

Styles Of Gemstone Bracelets

Some gemstone bracelets will simply include one type of gemstone set in silver or gold in a strand around the wrist. This can be a stunning look due to the color and vibrancy of the gemstones against the metal. A bracelet which uses emeralds or sapphires in this way is certain to be absolutely beautiful and will draw admiring looks and comments from all who see it.
Other gemstone bracelets will combine strands of different gemstones or alternating gemstones in a single strand. This is a nice way to display birthstones of a whole family. A mom will be pleased to receive a present which represents each of her children and the combination of gemstones will be beautiful.
Diamonds are often placed with another type of gemstone in a bracelet because the diamonds tend to compliment and enrich any other stone. A really beautiful combination for a gemstone bracelet is sapphires and diamonds. The rich blue color of sapphires is wonderfully enhanced by the sparkling diamonds. This combination is especially nice when set in silver or white gold.

Your legs will always stay safe and sound and what is more they will look really sexy and attractive. Do you know what I am talking about? Over-the-knee boots.

Such boots are often called “thigh-highs” – or “cuissardes”. The are favourite shoes of Madonna, and she looks spectacular wearing her over-the-knee Louis Vuitton boots, and notorious Kate Moss loves these boots a lot.

Frankly speaking, all kinds of soles are in, I mean both high-heeled and flat version loom amazing.
