Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Avoid wear­ing jew­ellery to shower, in the pool or dur­ing any ac­tiv­ity in con­tact with wa­ter, and also keep per­fumes, harsh cos­met­ics and makeup away from your jew­ellery pieces, say ex­perts.

Sub­hash Na­heta, hair­man at Jaipur Jew­els, lists down some tips to keep in mind:

Use an eraser to wipe off the marks on gold, jadau and polki jew­ellery. It is not a good method to clean your jew­ellery with wa­ter as the hu­mid­ity tends to rust the jew­ellery.

Use a mild glass cleanser to clean your di­a­mond and other stone jew­ellery pieces. To avoid scratches while clean­ing, use a soft bris­tle brush to re­move the dirt par­ti­cles. Use bak­ing soda pow­der with one ta­ble­spoon of wa­ter to re­move the grime. Af­ter all the clean­ing is done, use a linen cloth to wipe the jew­ellery dry.

Pro­fes­sional clean­ing and pol­ish­ing process to the daily wear pieces once a year is also rec­om­mended. Also, one should an­nu­ally get their jew­ellery checked to en­sure the set­tings and mount­ings.

Celebrity jew­ellery de­signer Farah Khan Ali of Farah Khan Fine Jew­ellery, says jew­ellery should be kept in a cool and dry place.

“Pearls must be pre­vented from soap wa­ter or per­fumes. Jew­ellery should not be bent, it should be placed flat on a soft fab­ric to avoid scratches,” she added.
