Nepali month Magh is the month of weddings. And where there are weddings, there obviously will be jewelry to take care of. Be it fashion jewelry or precious silver and gold, taking care of how you store means getting ready for the parties you attend. So here are some tips to take care of your jewelry that can ensure its durability.
Be sure to clean your jewelry before storing
Before storing your recently used jewelry make sure you wipe off all the sweat from them and store them at concealed places. Because sweat will change the color of the pieces and make them look old. Ideally, store them in a jewelry box with multiple slots or store them separately in boxes they came in to avoid scratching.
Keep them inside airtight box or zip locks
Store your jewelry in an airtight box or zip lock to preserve the polish for a longer time. Use a cloth-lined jewelry box or wrapped a soft cloth to maintain the shine and quality of your precious pearl pieces.
Use anti-tarnish paper
If you wish to maintain the shine of your jewelry, then store your fashion jewelry wrapped in anti-tarnish paper or an eyeglass cloth. Anti-tarnish paper will preserve the shine of the jewelry.
Keep different type of jewelry separately
Use different jewelry boxes to keep two different types of jewelry. It is very essential to store your jewelry in a separate jewelry box or secured containers that will prevent your baubles from moving around and preventing them from getting scratched and broken.
Avoid wearing delicate jewelry while cooking, gymming, swimming, or any household chores. Stay away from extreme exposure to heat and light as gemstones like kunzite can fade or discolor.
Put on last
Always put on your jewelry last when dressing. It should be done after the use of make-up, cosmetics, perfume, and lotions to avoid damage to delicate items.
Clean your jewelry with warm water, mild liquid soap and soft brush in a glass bowl. Dry it thoroughly before storing it back. One could use a precious metal polishing cloth to remove tarnish.
