How to clean your Kundan Jewellery?

It is important to clean your jewellery often, not necessarily every day but a careful cleaning once a week will prolong the age of your jewellery. Now you must be wondering how to clean your jewellery, it's quite simple all you need is a soft cloth to avoid scratches while cleaning. Use the cloth to gently wipe your jewellery piece. Please ensure you use a soft cloth and gentle rubbing to avoid scratches or discolouration. Make sure to dry the jewellery thoroughly after cleaning to avoid rusting or any other water-induced defects on your jewellery. And bam! There's your precious jewellery shining like a star.

What to avoid when cleaning Kundan Jewellery?

Metals are highly volatile to various and many substances, thus one needs to avoid exposure to harsh chemicals found in cleaning solutions, personal care products, makeup, perfumes, lotions etc. Hence, it is recommended to wear your jewellery only after showering, applying makeup, hairspray, perfume, gels, lotions etc in order to avoid corrosion. 

Moreover, you must refrain from submerging your jewellery in water. Exposing the jewellery to water can cause the gold to tarnish and the stones to lose their shine.  

How to store your Kundan Jewellery?

We often overlook the aspect of proper jewellery storage. Jewellery should not be tossed into a drawer or over the top of a table. You might be wondering where is the best place to store your Kundan Jewellery. After all, you want to ensure your pieces of jewellery are safe and look their best.

It is highly recommended to store your Kundan Jewellery in a cool and dry place. Packing each piece of your jewellery in zip lock bags before placing it into box containers is a safe way to avoid damage to your pieces of jewellery. Also, it is suggested to avoid locking your pieces of jewellery in a box or a drawer for longer to avoid corrosion to the metal due to moisture trapped in the storage. You need to ensure that you keep it away from direct sunlight for a long period, as this can fade the colours over a while.

Hence, it is highly recommended to follow the above steps to ensure the longevity of your jewellery.
