Your crystal rings are so versatile, that they can be worn with your fanciest clothing attire to your grungiest pair of jeans and still make you look like you have a polished  look going on. Just because you did not spend a fortune on your crystals does not mean that you do not have to take care of them. You do not want to wear your rings when gardening. Fertilizer and any food that you give to your garden can cause reaction to the crystal and the metals. One of these reactions could be a  discoloration of the metal, which might not be able to be fixed.  Even though you may clean your rings at home you should still take them in once a year to have them professionally cleaned and polished by a jeweler.

In more recent years jewelers have turned the simplest of crystals into many fine pieces of crystal rings, pendants and more. In the 1930s the jewelry makers came up with an idea of making custom jewelry which consisted of using inexpensive simulated gemstones like rhinestones and Lucite set in fake metals. The idea behind costume jewelry was you to buy inexpensive pieces to match your outfits. It was almost like the jewelry could be thrown away when done wearing it. This jewelry had no real value, except sentimental value.
