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/

Checklist: Busting Jewellery Myths

We as bauble folks love the idea of immersing ourselves in as much jewellery as we can and dismiss any blindly followed jewellery myth that comes our way.  So in an attempt to bust at least a few, we are here with a bunch of apparent fashion faux pas which in reality might be pulled off quite effortlessly.

Jewelry With Prints Can Be Non-Flattering

Now, whoever said this clearly did not team up a metallic or crystal embellished necklace with floral or pop art inspired ensembles. The jewellery could be worn to offset or blend in and that is what will take center stage. Also, colourful baubles are a thing and wearing them with equally thought through colourful outfits can be quite ground breaking.

You Can’t Wear Gold And Silver Jewelry Together

You might have come across this a lot and let us tell you that you shouldn’t believe it one bit. You can very well stack up gold and silver bracelets and create a statement art party or choose a chunky neck piece with gold and silver beads. Trust us the two colours are best friends and will only amplify your look.

Retro Pieces Can’t Be Trendy Once The Fad Dies Down

This is a blatantly told lie that we all have fallen prey to at some time. We mean don’t continue wearing them incessantly but look at hoops, they are a retro gem. Then there are chokers which are still much coveted. You didn’t buy them all to stop wearing them once they become a downward trend. Keep reviving them by including them in different ensembles from time to time.

Avoid Blingy Jewellery During Daytime

Crystals entered in full furore and quintessentially busted this myth but still many shy from picking blingy jewellery as a part of their daytime ensemble. We are here to affirm that you can certainly wear sequin earrings, sleek bracelets and chunky crystal necklaces with your formal shirts and flowy blouses to look style perfect.

We hope we have helped you in realizing that you can completely let go off these myths and experiment with them more often 🙂

Also, don’t forget to tell us a jewellery myth that you have so often heard.

This year, we will all out profess reversible necklaces because
our love for them has soared to newer levels. We are not even starting on the
beautiful back trail that these necklaces offer.

Whimsical Tresses

We declared ourselves
accessory addicts very early in life when we showed a natural affinity to
fairies. Fairy dust, shimmery hair accessories, baubles, yes it all does make
sense now 🙂
