How To: Jewelry Care

cover

We as bauble heads love our jewelry and take true pride in flaunting them. However we often come across jewelry storing or caring roadblocks that don’t get answered. To give you a low-down on those and to help you keep your accessories blinging for longer we suggest you follow these takeaway tips:

Keep away from moisture

Picture this, you are all set to step out for the party and in the last minute you feel your hair needs a tinge more of that hair spray. While you spray it, a spritz of it deposits on your gorgeous earrings. We all know what happens next! To avoid this,your jewellery needs to be kept away from any source of moisture be it face mists, perfumes, moisturizers etc. You should also not wear your jewellery while bathing or gymming because water and sweat can both ruin your jewellery. Do not use any chemicals to clean your jewellery as it may cause tarnishing.

store carefully

Always store your jewellery in separate zip locks so that they do not rub against each other and get discoloured. Layered pendants and earrings, tassels and pompom jewellery should not be folded and kept to retain their shape. If need be, you can wipe your jewellery gently with a soft cloth or cotton after every use to ensure their longevity.

Don't leave them out

Jewelry worn under sunlight for an extended period of time causes it to tarnish.  Also it often happens that you have left jewellery out on the dressing table after reaching home tired from a party. While it’s okay if it rests there for a while, it’s absolutely not advisable to leave it there for long hours as it may cause blackening of the metal and cause stones or crystals to falter.

keep chains

Apart from being difficult to detangle, entangling of chains also results in tarnishing. To save yourself all the extra effort, you need to first drop the pendant in the zip-lock bag and then let the chain go in with only the lock and extensions out, zipping close the bag. This way, when you need to wear the chain, it will be easy to remove without any knots.

There, there we hope you never have to let go off your favourite baubles due to tarnishing problems anymore. Also to keep increasing your jewellery collection, you can shop here: http://www.pipabella.com/
