From The Experts: 5 Tips To Take Care Of Your Bridal Jewellery

By  | 

The wedding day is perhaps the most anticipated moment for every girl and her family. The jewellery she chooses certainly enhances the occasion. Naturally, it is important to maintain and clean it regularly so that it continues to shine and sparkle for years to come.

Leading fashion designer Shaina NC gives our brides a few tips for taking care of their bridal jewellery.


1) Jewellery gets affected by cosmetics. Please apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray, body mists and perfume before wearing your jewellery.

2) After taking off the jewellery, clean each piece carefully with a soft cloth to remove traces of oils and perspiration and store individually in a fabric lined box to avoid scratches and entanglement.

3) It best to clean Bridal jewellery with a soft brush dipped in warm water to remove dirt or particles.

4) Get antique and family heirloom coloured stones certified from a professional laboratory in order to determine their value. Do not expose your coloured stone jewellery to extreme temperature changes.

5) While storing jewellery, store it away from the sunlight as it can let the spark fade off from your piece.
