Jewellery-A Girl’s Best Friend|Tips on how to preserve them

o-matic.1

We all just hate it when our favourite pair of earrings or bracelets go a weird, unappealing colour. Anyone would want their jewellery to look new and fresh even after it has been worn many a times.

Jewellery is a very important part of our wardrobe. So knowing the proper procedure for preserving it is very important.

The reason why it tarnishes is because of its exposure to moisture.

So, we take you through a guide that will tell you the DOs and DON’Ts of jewellery preservation-

027

# To Do-

  1. The best and ancient way to prevent your jewellery from rusting is to brush a little bit of clear nail polish to preserve the shine and colour.
  2. You can even preserve your jewellery when unused by putting it in a zip lock air tight plastic bag. Make sure you remove all the air from the plastic bag before zip locking it as the moisture may cause your jewellery colour to fade.
  3. You can wipe your jewellery pieces with a soft cotton cloth to help restore their luster.

#The Don’ts;

  1. Jewellery cleaners are a pure damage to your jewellery. It may seem easy to clean but there are some ingredients which MUST be kept away from our imitation jewellery which are present in almost all jewellery cleansers such as
  • Vinegar
  • Acids
  • Alcohol
  • Ammonia
  1. Real enemies of imitation jewellery are perfume, deo sprays and hair sprays. A single spray of these perfumes can instantly spoil the look and colour of the jewellery and can shorten the colour life.
  2. Some suggest using glass cleaners or soapy water to clean your jewellery but it may cause your jewellery to become dull from soap film.

Chic to ethnic gracious WAIST BELTS

No Solah Sringar for a woman can be complete without the kamarband. Colloquially called the challa or the patka, the waistbelt is an ornate strip of jewellery that graces the waistline of an Indian woman. It is a beautiful and unique element of sensuality that sits pretty on the waist of a bride too accentuating her waist in gold, kundan, pearls, stones, chains, Swarovski and precious gems. Yes it does contribute majorly to holding the sari in place but the workmanship of the kamarband worn on a saree, half saree or a lehnga has its own charm.

The History of the Waistband  

The patka goes back to the Mughal era when it was considered as a fine piece of embellishment for the Maharanis. Over a passage of time, it began to be worn by the classical dancers of Kathak, Bharatnatyam and Odishi genre. The waistband further on became a hottie for leading Bollywood celebrities such as Shilpa Shetty, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Jacqueline Fernandes in fashion shows and ramp walks. No wonder why this ‘jewellery of the waist’ has amazed the viewers from the regal past to the contemporary present.

Occasion-based Waist Glamour

Undoubtedly, the waistbelt looks fabulous when worn over low waist sarees in ceremonial occasions such as sangeet, reception, wedding day and the festival of Navratri. Traditsiya brings you an ornate collection of saree waistbelts, saree challas and hip chains redefining the picture perfect waistlines of femme fatales.
