Basic tips to make your Jewellery last long

Jewellery, whether precious or otherwise, needs to be handled with care if we really want to enjoy it for a long time. Don’t wear your fashion jewellery everyday, and avoid cleaners that contain acid, alcohol, vinegar or ammonia, say experts. Here are a few other tips listed by them:

* Keep them clean and dry. Whether it is a necklace, ring, bracelet or earrings, exposing fashion jewellery to any type of cream, chemical product, lotion, perfume, oil or even water is an undeniable accelerator of tarnishing.

* Metals like brass, copper or bronze will oxidise and see their colour changing. Always remove your jewellery before applying cream, perfume or when you wash your hands.

* Do not forget to give your costume jewellery a little break from time to time. Fashion jewellery is usually not meant to be worn every day. Therefore, if you wear the same pieces of jewellery on a daily basis, you might see discolouration.

* To make your costume jewellery look its best as long as possible, clean each piece after each use. Or, at least wipe them down with a soft cloth to remove any product residues and sweat that accelerate oxidation. Avoid cleaners that contain acid, alcohol, vinegar or ammonia, since they can damage your jewellery.

* Store your fashion jewellery carefully in cotton, butter paper, velvet cases or zip lock bags. Fashion necklaces must be hung vertically.

* Store individual items separately to avoid them from getting tangled.
