by Ankita Sehgal Freelance Blogger, Lives in New Delhi

Jewellery in India is more than just a few decorative pieces that one dons to enhance their look. It represents a sense of pride and is a symbol of the country’s culture. It is an essential part of the bridal trousseau and is a must-have during family functions and festivities. Different parts of the country have developed their own unique jewellery manufacturing process and sense of style over the years.

Be it Kundan, polki or jadau jewellery, you need to ensure proper care of these precious treasures. These have evolved from a craft into an art, both in terms of design and craftsmanship. But possessing these beautiful pieces is not the end of the story. With it comes the responsibility of handling this jewellery with utmost care to retain their quality. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while you ensure that these pieces of heritage remain shining forever:                  

Do’s    

·         Always keep your jewellery away from direct or indirect heat. It can affect the back of the stone which can affect its shape, colour and size.

·         Avoid moisture or closed environments for long periods of time. The lack of air can lead to oxidization of gold and 24k Kundan jewellery.         

·         Never place two pieces of jewellery in the same box. Maintain separate zip lock bags and a plastic box for outer protection for each of them.

·         While cleaning, use non-detergent based soapy water and wipe it dry with a soft cloth. Kundan and Polki jewellery are known to attract moisture so it is important to ensure that they are stored in dry places.       

·         Visit your jeweller once a year to get your pieces checked for signs of damage. Hazoorilal Legacy is a leading jewellery chain that has magnificent jewellery pieces to offer. They have been in the business for years and are the epitome of elegant and mesmerising ornaments. You can also have a look at their stunning Polki, golden and diamond jewellery pieces online.     

Don’ts

·         Avoid the contact of jewellery pieces with room spray, cologne, perfume or any spray item as it may tarnish the quality.

·         Do not use an abrasive cleaner on your jewellery.

·         Do not wear your jewellery while applying makeup or styling your hair. Wear it after you are done with these procedures as the chemicals in your cosmetics and hair sprays can affect the quality of your jewellery.

·         Do not allow water to directly come in contact with your jewellery. Be it stepping out in the rains or washing your face, water is a bit no!

Follow these steps to retain the quality of your jewels and maintain their shine and lustre. These precious pieces are sure to remain with you for years and can be passed on to your future generations if maintained with love and care.
