Velvet and cotton are great for storing delicate stones like pearls. Swatches can be cut from the fabric and made to wrap around them.
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.
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.
Jadau jewellery needs to be stored in layers of cotton wool in airtight boxes to keep the monsoon moisture at bay.
Avoid re-polishing unless really required, to prevent metal weight loss during this season.
