How To Make Your Paparazzi Jewelry Last Longer?
Tips to Keep Your Paparazzi Jewelry Looking New
Paparazzi jewelry is $5 jewelry. But, that doesn't mean you want your Paparazzi jewelry from turning into junk! With the proper Paparazzi care instructions you can make your jewelry last!
Here is how to care for your Paparazzi jewelry:
- Never sleep while wearing your jewelry. This could lead to a necklace or bracelet snagging. It also could lead to the necklace getting tangled in your hair. Ouch! You don't want that!
- Keep the jewelry dry. Do not shower while wearing the jewelry or store the Paparazzi jewelry in a place with high humidity, like close to the shower.
- Avoid using sprays such as perfume or hair spray while you are wearing the jewelry. You may use these products before you put on the pieces, it's just recommended to not put them on while wearing them.
- Do not exercise while wearing the jewelry. Again, you want to keep the jewelry from getting wet. You do not want to sweat in the jewelry.
Avoid swimming in the jewelry. Chemicals in pools tarnish jewelry.
**Keep it dry!**
Paparazzi jewelry should be the last thing you put on before going out and the first thing you take off after coming home.
Paparazzi jewelry cleaning instructions are quite simple.
Clean your jewelry with a jewelry cleaning cloth or any other soft cloth. This will remove any lotions, perfumes, body oils, etc.
Over time, this can damage your Paparazzi jewelry.
Does Paparazzi jewelry tarnish?
It can if not properly cared for. It will tarnish quickly if left in a humid area.
Does the jewelry turn green?
Some Paparazzi rings may turn your finger green under certain conditions. This isn't because of the jewelry---it is because of chemical reactions between the acids in your skin. You can avoid this by coating the ring with clear nail polish so there is a barrier between the ring and your finger.
How should I store Paparazzi Jewelry?
You're probably wondering how to store Paparazzi jewelry when you are not wearing it. Some suggestions are necklace holders that allow the necklace to dangle freely. You can find earring organizers that you can put the earring through a mesh-like piece and hang your Paparazzi earrings. For bracelets you can get a bracelet bar at any craft store. And rings you can use a velvet ring organizer.
I hope you have found these Paparazzi care instructions helpful in keeping your gorgeous jewelry looking brand new!

Do you have questions about Paparazzi?
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get regarding Paparazzi Accessories:
The answer is up to you! You can work Paparazzi as a hobby, a part-time gig, or as a full-time job. Many members of my team do it for just a few hours per week to earn spending money, others make hundreds of dollars per month part-time, and my husband and I work it full-time to support our family.
The short answer is no, it is not a pyramid scheme. The long answer is that it is a Multi-Level Marketing, or network marketing, business.
In most cases, no. However, some people's body chemistry can lend all fashion jewelry, not just Paparazzi, to turn green. If your body chemistry has done this in the past to other jewelry, the best recommendation to prevent it from turning green is to keep it dry.
Paparazzi jewelry is well-made and of high quality. Many, many people have complimented me on my jewelry and are amazed that it is only $5. Paparazzi jewelry is considered fashion jewelry, so it is not made of real silver, gold, diamonds, etc, but the build quality is great and the pieces last. Most issues with items breaking are due to "jump rings," the little metal hoops that connect parts of the jewelry, becoming disconnected. These are easily corrected with a small pair of pliers.
If you are a Paparazzi consultant, you are not allowed to sell pieces for lower than the retail price, which is $5 for regular items, $1 for Starlet Shimmer, and $25 for Zi Collection pieces. You can sell for more than $5, but it is not recommended. When you purchase inventory from Paparazzi, you pay the sales tax rate based off the retail price of $5 per piece. Paparazzi then remits this sales tax to your state for you. If you sell an item for more than $5, you are responsible for reporting and submitting the sales tax for the amount over $5, which is a bigger headache than most want to tackle.
The answer to this question varies greatly from state to state, city to city, and county to county. In most cases, no, you do not need a license to sell Paparazzi as an independent consultant. However, if you are unsure, check with your local small business office to find out more, especially if you plan on working large events or have a retail store open to the public.
Paparazzi jewelry and accessories are manufactured in production facilities in China and always nickel and lead free. These production facilities have very high standards and regulations for labor, materials, and workmanship. The product is distributed from a distribution center in southern Utah.
The $99 Paparazzi starter kit is a great place to start!
Paparazzi jewelry is high quality and durable and should provide you many seasons of wear. To get the most out of your jewelry, keep it clean and dry, and store it in a climate controlled location.
The most basic way that Paparazzi consultants get paid is through selling their jewelry. Consultants earn a 45% commission on each piece that they sell. This commission can add up quickly! For example, if you sell 50 pieces at 45% commission, that is $112.50 in profit! Paparazzi consultants also have a compensation plan through which they can earn additional money based of the sales of their team members.
All Paparazzi consultants make the same 45% commission on their accessory and jewelry sales. The amount of sales varies from consultant to consultant.
Paparazzi has several advantages over other home-based business: high (45%) commission, wide selection of products, and always-new inventory. To be successful, you to have to put for effort to make your product available to customers. For my family, it has definitely been worth it as we have gone from hobby to part-time to full-time, with my husband leaving his corporate job to work at home with me.
Paparazzi jewelry, like all fashion jewelry, should be kept clean and dry to keep it from rusting or tarnishing. Do not swim, sweat or otherwise get your jewelry wet. If you accidentally do get it wet, be sure to clean and dry your accessories as soon as possible.
To be considered an active Paparazzi Consultant, you need to order at least 50 PV (25 pieces) per month. Active status allows you to be listed in the Paparazzi directory and to earn bonuses and commissions on your down-line. If you miss a month, don't worry; you will not be penalized and can become active the next month. To keep your account open, you must order 200 PV (100 pieces) in a rolling calendar year or your account will be cancelled.
Once you enroll online to become a Paparazzi consultant, it usually takes 2-3 days for your package to be processed and shipped, and another few days (depending on your location) for your delivery to arrive. Most new consultants receive their package in around one week.
One of the best things about Paparazzi is how easy it is to get started. All you need is a phone or computer with internet access and a debit or credit card. You'll need the ID number of another consultant to join; my number is 110203 and I'd love to help you start your journey.
You can sell Paparazzi jewelry and accessories in a variety of ways. Home parties, fairs, expos, events, yard sales, and flea markets are traditional sales avenues with a long history of being successful. You can also sell through modern means such as Facebook, Instagram, email, and online web stores. You cannot sell on Ebay, Amazon, Craigslist, and similar sites that you do not own.
Paparazzi has 14 ranks, with all consultants starting out as a "Consultant". Once you order 50PV (25 pieces) you advance to a "Star Consultant". When you have three personally sponsored active consultants join your team, and have 50PV that month, you advance to a "Director" and can start earning commissions and bonuses.
When properly cared for, Paparazzi jewelry and accessories should provide years of enjoyment. Here are a few tips on keeping your bling in tip-top shape:
1. Keep it dry.
2. Remove it when you exercise or work out, or anytime you sweat.
3. Do not wear it while sleeping.
4. Store it in a climate controlled environment, away from chemicals such as lotions or oils.
5. Put your bling on AFTER you do your hair and makeup so it is not exposed to those chemicals.
6. Clean your bling from time to time with a clean, dry cloth.
Hostess Rewards are additional pieces that a Paparazzi consultant receives free of charge with each order over 10 pieces. For every 10 pieces in their order, they will receive 1 free piece. These pieces are typically used as a reward to friends of the consultant who "host" a Paparazzi party. They can also be given away as prizes.
Hosting a party is a great way to earn free Paparazzi jewelry and accessories! For every 10 pieces that are sold to individuals that you invite to your party, you will receive one free piece. To host a party, simply contact me via email or Facebook and we can schedule a time that works for you (see contact info at the bottom of the site).

Every business day, Paparazzi releases new pieces available for purchase by consultants and the public. These pieces are called "new releases" and are anxiously watched for by Paparazzi consultants. Normally, new releases appear on the website at 3:00 PM Eastern, though on a rare occasion they show up a bit late.
