Storing jewellery to make it last: Do's and dont's from Ketan Chokshi

Jewellery is a very important possession not only for women but also families. It is a precious asset and there are few antique or heavy pieces of jewellery, which are passed along the family tree to be treasured for decades. Fine jewellery in any form has a special meaning. It is precious and should be cared for and preserved carefully.

Preservation not only requires proper storing techniques but special care should be taken while wearing the jewellery as well. Here are some tips, which will help you in preserving your jewellery for generations to enjoy!

Any kind of chemical, which is usually present in make-up, lotions, hair spray, perfumes can spoil the jewellery. It leads to discoloration of the jewellery. Hence it is very important to be completely ready i.e apply your make-up, wear your clothes, finish your hair do, apply perfume and then wear your jewellery.

Jewellery is very delicate and can get scratched if not maintained properly. In case of diamond and jadau pieces, it is quite natural for the precious stones to fall if kept casually in a drawyer without taking proper care. It is always advisable to keep the jewellery in a padded box (preferably a medication box). Also, make sure that you keep each and every piece of jewellery in a separate padded box to protect the jewellery for a long time.

It is imperative to clean the jewellery from time to time, even if it’s kept inside a box. Special care should be taken while cleaning the jewellery. Put the jewellery in the cleaning solution for a while, scrub with light strokes. Make sure that you use a soft toothbrush. Cleaning it on a regular basis will ensure your jewellery doesn't get discoloured.

Save your jewellery from coming in contact with chemicals like chlorine, alcohol, vinegar and other greasy stuff. Make sure to remove the jewellery before going for a shower, swim or even exercising.
