Handle with care:

Velvet and cotton are great for storing delicate stones like pearls. Swatches can be cut from the fabric and made to wrap around them.



Humidity woes:

Precious metals with high gold content mostly remain unaffected during the monsoon. In case of deflection of colour, one should use abrasive jewellery cleaning cloth or soft leather.



Store well:

Wrap the jewellery in tissue or cotton and keep it in a cupboard where it is not exposed to air or light, to keep it safe from damage.



Special attention:

Jadau jewellery needs to be stored in layers of cotton wool in airtight boxes to keep the monsoon moisture at bay.



Monsoon special:

Avoid re-polishing unless really required, to prevent metal weight loss during this season.
