Jew­ellery is ex­pen­sive and you want to keep it look­ing just as amaz­ing as the day you bought it. You may have thought that it’s dif­fi­cult to main­tain ox­i­dised jew­ellery, on the con­trary, it’s quite easy. The fastest and eas­i­est method to main­tain them is through us­ing a paste of lemon juice and salt, say ex­perts.

They fur­ther share some more tricks to main­tain ox­i­dised jew­ellery:

Make sure to keep your ox­i­dised jew­ellery away from mois­ture. It is sug­gested to store each piece in­di­vid­u­ally in a zip lock plas­tic pouch to make sure that there is no con­tact with air.

When wear­ing ox­i­dised jew­ellery, make sure that it does not come in con­tact with per­fume or any cos­metic prod­ucts. Let your per­fume dry be­fore wear­ing the jew­ellery.

If the jew­ellery does get ox­i­dised fur­ther, clean it very gen­tly us­ing a dry tooth­paste pow­der and a soft cloth to bring back its orig­i­nal sheen.

Put the jew­ellery in a bowl of tomato ketchup for 5-10 min­utes to re­move the tar­nish. The acid in the toma­toes ox­i­dises with tar­nished sil­ver, which helps in keeping your ox­i­dised jew­ellery as new as you bought.

The fastest and eas­i­est method to main­tain the jew­ellery is by us­ing tooth­paste. Just rub the white tooth­paste on the jew­ellery and rinse it off with warm water.

Cover the jew­ellery gen­er­ously with bak­ing soda and leave for 30 min­utes. Rinse it off with hot water.
