5 ways to mix and match your jewelry with your outfits.

Jewelry and outfits are inseparable, they go hand in hand. The choice of jewellery depends on the attire you wear and vice-versa. Traditional attires are likely to demand sparkly jewellery like temple jewellery or antique jewellery. But modern outfits that took a transformation over the ages are better matched with fashion/ imitation jewellery that are flashy and aesthetic, the choice however depends much upon the wearer.

The term- ‘mix and match’ has assumed new proportions among the modern elite. Here are a 5 ways you can team up jewelry with different outfits:

  • SHINY JEWELLERY should be worn with dark and bold colours, never wear shiny jewellery with a very sparkly outfit as it will be very flashy to the onlooker.

How to maintain your fashion jewellery

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.

1.STORAGE METHOD-

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.

4. ORGANISERS-

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.

5. MOISTURE-

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.

Bangles – Beautifully yours!

Bangles form part of the traditional ornamental jewellery of Indian culture from time immemorial. It even dates back to the pre-historic ages, where bangles were made of stone, clay and metal. Gradually it became a work of art and were made out of precious metals like gold and silver. Today, it occupies a vast space in modern ornamental jewellery with a million designs transcending cultural barriers. This fashionable trend has now been passed on to alien cultures. Now, it is as popular in the west, as it is in India. So much so, that there is a vast market in the bangle trade, be it precious or non precious. Ornamental bangles made of precious metals and stones are beyond the reach of the aam admi, hence this has given rise to a market of bangles made of semi-precious metals and stones known as FASHION JEWELLERY. The love for this ornamental jewellery has given rise to various types of bangles.

There are 2 very basic types of bangles: a solid cylinder type and a split cylindrical spring opening/ closing type.

The only distinguishing factor is the material used to make these bangles, they vary from the following:
