Tips To Take Care

For Diamond jewellery
You need to be extra careful while keeping the diamond jewellery in case, as the diamonds can get scratched by the other diamonds easily. Avoid putting them into a bag. If you want to keep your diamond shine as it is, take a cup of warm water, and mix the detergent powder in it. Put your diamond rings or set into it and let them stay there for few hours. Take them out and wipe gently with soft cloth. You will see your diamonds shiner as ever! Also, remember not to apply any makeup or cologne after wearing diamonds.

For Polki & Kundan
Polki and Kundan jewellery easily loose the shine, because they are prone to moisture. Keeping them in the jewellery box will not save them from the moisture and your jewellery will get dark. So, to avoid moisture, wrap your sets and rings in butter paper or cotton and put them in air tight container. This is the best way to keep them shiner.

For Gold Sets
Gold sets are easy to care for, and maintain its shine. One of the best ways to clean your gold jewellery is by putting them in water for a couple of minutes. Now take a little toothpaste onto the cotton ball and gently apply it on your jewellery. Then wash them with water. Remember not to use toothbrush as it will scratch the jewellery. Also, keep them in soft cloth or velvet box that comes with it.
