How to maintain your jewellery
Don’t you just hate discoloured and faded jewellery? When your favourite pair of earrings or your most treasured charm bracelet go a weird, unappealing colour? The lustre and beauty of inexpensive jewellery can also be maintained well with the right care and tips. Here are a few measures to prolong the spark and brightness to your imitation jewellery.
It is very important to store your jewellery in the right manner. Keeping your jewellery lying around on your dresser or hanging them around is most likely to cause damage to them. A good suggestion will be to store them in small air tight plastic zipper bags and be certain to let out all the air before zip locking. This will play the biggest role in avoiding the dulling and tarnishing of your jewellery.
2. STORAGE WHILE TRAVELING-
It is a must to store your jewellery very carefully while you travel, as they are carried around and damage is unavoidable. You can still keep them safe by storing them in jewellery cases. Specifically designed jewellery cases lined with fabric and dividers is the ideal storage for your jewellery.
3. JEWELLERY POUCHES-
For those who do not have a jewellery case or have run out of space in a small jewellery case, can use a jewellery pouch which also serves the purpose. These jewellery pouches are made out of satin and velvet on the inside which keeps your jewels damage free. Note: while placing necklaces in these pouches, one must make sure to place them untangled.
For jewellery made out of wood/glass or plastic, which do not discolour can be hung on a jewellery tree or put in racks. A jewellery tree is usually kept on your dresser with branches that are used to hang your wooden/glass or plastic bangles. This way you would avoid losing or breaking them.
Imitation jewellery should never be exposed to moisture of any sort, like: creams, hairspray, perfumes, water or any chemicals. When you are all dressed up to leave for your party or work, make sure to spray your perfume and then wear your jewellery. If not, this will cause dullness and discolour your jewellery. Always apply cosmetics before wearing your jewellery.
