    Apart from that, if possible get tracing papers and wrap the imitation jewellery in them.

    Dont keep the pearls with other jewellery be it imitation or gold.

    Care & Cleaning

    Fine jewelry is a precious possession that is designed and crafted to last a lifetime.
    proper care is required to assure the lasting qualities of your jewelry.The following simple guidelines and tips for the care and cleaning of your fine jewelry.
    General Tips
    • Store your jewelry in a clean, dry place.
    • Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined jewelry case, or in a box with compartments and dividers. If you prefer to use ordinary boxes, wrap each piece individually in soft tissue paper.
    • Don't jumble your jewelry pieces in a drawer or jewelry case. Pieces can scratch each other.
    • Be careful when removing your jewelry to wash your hands. Do not leave your jewelry on the rim of a sink where it can easily slip down the drain.
    • See your jeweler at least once a year to have your jewelry checked for loose prongs, worn mountings, and general wear and tear. Visit your jeweler every six months to have your jewelry professionally cleaned.
    Diamonds
    Diamond jewelry is very popular. Some pieces, such as diamond engagement and wedding rings, are often worn 24 hours a day. Even though you may wear your diamond jewelry around the clock, you should give thought to its care. Diamonds are durable, but they still require proper maintenance. Diamonds can get smudged, soiled and dusty. Lotions, powders, soaps, even natural skin oils, put a film on diamonds and cut down their brilliance. Clean diamonds "glow" because the maximum amount of light can enter the stone and return in a fiery brilliance. It takes just a little care to keep them that way.
    • Do not wear diamond jewelry, especially rings, when doing rough work. Even though diamond is one of the hardest materials in nature, it can still be chipped by a sharp, sudden blow.
    • Chlorine can damage and discolor the mounting on your diamond jewelry. Keep your diamond away from chlorine bleach or other household chemicals. You should also remove your diamond jewelry before entering a chlorinated pool or hot tub.
    • Clean your diamonds regularly using a commercial jewelry cleaner, a mix of ammonia and water, or a mild detergent. Dip the jewelry into the solution and use a soft brush to dislodge dust or dirt from under the setting.
    • Avoid touching your clean diamonds with your fingers. Handle clean jewelry by its edges.

    Hi Rajmi, Padma n Piu,
    Nice tips on how to maintain jewels.
    BTW, i have a Q. I wearing the mangal sutra in a gold chain connected by "velli kambi" (silver string).

    Some of my friends told me that we are not supposed to joine Gold and silver,because the value( weight)will decrease if done so. Is it True?
