How to maintain your Jewelry

Hi all!!

 

A woman’s jewelry is her prized possession. It is brought out on special occasions to adorn her and make her look absolutely spectacular. Any piece of jewelry is imbued with emotions, memories and nostalgia- it could have been bought for that most special wedding day or handed down as a heirloom from a great grandmother, and then there is always that aspiration to hand it down to a daughter or daughter-in-law who will cherish it the way you have.

 

The primary concern through all this is how to maintain and preserve your jewelry to ensure that it retains its lustre as long as one continues to wear it.

 

Well, to dispel all that anxiety, here are a few pointers to keep your jewelry glittering.

 

  • Put your jewelry into your jewelry box or a soft bag, where it is safe from air, moisture and sunlight.
  • Use a clean, soft and dry cloth to clean your jewelry after you take it off so that there is no residue left to spoil it.
  • Take off your jewelry when you sleep, bathe, swim and while playing.
  • If your piece of jewelry has precious stones in it, then you need to be extra careful.
  • Try not to overdo the use of cleaners as it can lead to discoloration.
  • Make sure your jewelry is dry before you store it.
  • Try and avoid contact with chemical constituents as they can corrode your jewelry.

 

Just keeping a few things can make your jewelry last forever.
