Caring for Fashion Jewelry During Monsoon

By Chinu Kala

New Delhi, September 29 (IANSlife): During the wet monsoon season, your jewelry is most vulnerable and requires extra love and care. We’ve compiled a list of suggestions for keeping your favorite costume jewelry in good condition during the wet monsoon season. These tips will ensure your jewelry is as clean as if you bought it yesterday.

The secret is to keep your jewelry dry and clean: If you want to keep your costume jewelry sparkling, be sure to keep it dry and clean, especially during the monsoon season. Costume jewelry is not meant for everyday wear as the chemicals can cause a reaction.

Cream or perfume should be kept away from your fashion jewelry. Apply your lotion and perfume first, then finish with your jewelry. Even water can damage your jewelry, so take it off before washing your hands or taking a bath.

Cleaning is Key: The vast majority of jewelry cleaners are extremely harsh on costume jewelry and are intended to clean silver, gold, and platinum metals. Therefore, do not use them to clean your fashion jewelry. When jewelry gets wet from rain, the best thing to do is to dry it with a hair dryer and then dry it with a soft cloth.

Wipe your jewelery one last time with a soft anti-tarnish cloth before putting it away at the end of the day. This ensures that no residual moisture, oil or dust remains. Make sure the container the jewelry is stored in is moisture resistant.

Store it properly: Excessive exposure to air and humidity can wreak havoc on your precious jewelry if you keep your costume jewelry loose in a drawer. Individual airtight tarnish-proof paper bags are recommended for jewelry storage. Humidity has the ability to degrade metal alloys used in jewelry, causing them to lose their luster. To avoid this, store your jewelry in a box that is sturdy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Keep it shiny by inserting small sachets of silica gel to absorb moisture and keep it shiny. Manually dry the jewelry with a hair dryer to dry even the slightest moisture. Go for a box with separate compartments to ensure that your jewelry does not break or get scratched due to any type of friction.

Besides your health, the monsoon is the season when your jewelry needs special attention. It is essential that you check your sparkling pieces regularly so that they always reflect a new luster and shine, making them perfect and ready to wear while enjoying the monsoon as it is joyful, refreshing and gives us a burst of life. . energy.
