  • Avoid wearing jewellery to shower, in the pool or during any activity in contact with water, and also keep perfumes, harsh cosmetics and make-up away from your jewellery pieces
  • Use an eraser to wipe off the marks on gold, jadau and polki jewellery. It is not a good method to clean your jewellery with water as the humidity tends to rust the jewellery.
