Sunayan Vora – Jewellery should not be thrown into a drawer or on top of a dressing table; it is suggested to keep your baubles in velvet boxes. Be careful when using ring holders or jewellery dishes as these tend to stack rings on top of each other which ultimately cause damage. Most jewellerycan be washed clean in plain running water. You can use mild detergent or soap to clean the stubborn dirt.
Wear your perfume before you put on jewellery. Also regular servicing is a must for all your fine jewellery. At home you can lightly brush yourjewellery with toothpaste or keep it overnight in soft soapy water.
