Store Jewels in a Dry Space (Box Them Up)

When you take off your jewels for the day, don't just toss them aside haphazardly. Keep your precious ornaments safely tucked away in a jewellery box, safe from moisture, grime, and tangles.

Jewellery boxes with compartments let you neatly organise your pieces so they don't scratch each other. Tiny boxes are perfect for storing rings securely. Shutting the lid keeps out humidity, dust, and other damaging elements so your jewels retain their lustre longer.

Wash Away Grime Gently and Regularly

Just like your other belongings, jewellery also attracts dirt, grease, and soap-scum over time. Grime can dull the shine of gems and encourage tarnishing of metals. Make it a habit to gently clean your jewels once a week during monsoon using a mild jewellery cleaning solution.

Dip soft cloths into the solution and use them to gently wipe down each piece. Pay special attention to intricate crevices and underneath central stones where grime likes to hide. Let your jewels air dry on a soft towel before putting them away. Regular cleaning keeps them glittering!

Be Careful When Wearing Jewellery Outdoors

While your jewels may love attention, limit how much time you make them spend under pouring rain. When headed out on a wet day, pick just one or two favourite jewels to wear instead of your whole collection. Avoid wearing fragile, delicate jewellery that could bend or break if bumped under the umbrella.

Diamonds and other gems retain their sparkle longest when kept away from moisture and grime. Take off your jewels while doing wet, dirty outdoor work and keep them safely stored at home.

Dry Jewellery Thoroughly After Exposure to Moisture

If your jewellery happens to get wet in the rain, it's important to dry them thoroughly before storage. Water pooling under stones can lead to damage over time. Gently dab pieces with a soft towel to soak up moisture from nooks and crannies.

You can also use a hairdryer on a cool setting to blow dry your jewellery after light towel drying. Make sure to hold pieces securely while drying so you don't accidentally blow them away! Allow jewels to fully air dry instead of hastily putting them into a box while still moist.

Store Jewellery Properly After Wearing

After a day out in your jewellery, make sure to wipe them clean with a soft dry cloth before putting them away for storage. This removes skin oils, makeup residue, dirt, and other grime that may have collected throughout the day.

Don't jumble everything together haphazardly. Lay pieces separately in a tray or slot them into compartments so they don't snag or scratch against each other. Proper storage keeps your precious jewellery damage-free and brilliant!
