Do not store rhinestones in wooden jewelry boxes, as certain kinds of wood, like oak has certain chemicals that react adversely with the metals in costume jewelry.
Patination is a term for the protective layer that forms over most copper-based metal items and prevents it from eroding. A certain amount of wear and tear leads to patina, especially in a piece of jewelry. So, it is understandable that some pieces be slightly distressed. In fact, it is quite rare that you'll find a piece of vintage jewelry that has not seen better days (unless it was bought and stored away by the previous owner, which is highly unlikely).
The most common item of jewelry that most people take in for cleaning is their wedding ring, particularly one with diamonds. A wedding ring suffers the same exposure to the everyday onslaught of food and washing up that my watch had, not to mention the dirt and grease that can accumulate under and around the band itself. Routine cleaning can be carried out with a toothbrush - as long as you don't use it on your teeth afterwards. However, to rid your wedding ring of the long-term build up of tarnish and grease, you need to clean it thoroughly with a jewelry cleaner.
First of all, make a lot of research. If you are going to enter into a retail business, research on possible suppliers; if you are selling handmade jewelry determine if you are making them yourself or there are other people who are making the jewelry for you. You can research on the internet, but you can also look in your local area and talk to the crafters and artisans there, they may just be interested in supplying you with your jewelry and may even see that as an opportunity to sell their works.
