Ah, monsoon season—a blend of gloominess and vibrancy, with tantalising aromas of rain-kissed earth and the joy of cozying up with hot cups of tea. Yet, amid the romanticism, lies a challenge, particularly for cherished silver jewellery in India. The humidity that accompanies the rains can also take a toll on our beloved Silver ornaments.

Preventing your silver jewellery from getting tarnished in these heavy rains seems nearly impossible unless you know how to take care of your silver jewellery using simple, effective methods.

Here are some very easy tips and tricks to keep your 92.5 Sterling silver jewellery always shining, even in the monsoons: 

  • Dry Thoroughly: Caught in the rain? Ensure your jewellery dries completely before stashing it away. Here using a soft cotton cloth works best to pat dry your jewellery. Avoiding using paper towels, as their fibres can scratch delicate surfaces.
  • Individual Care: Treat each piece of jewellery with the respect it deserves. Store them separately in zipped lock plastic pouches to prevent them from tangling.
  • Traditional Methods: Use age-old remedies like Colgate, Pitambari powder, or Reetha (soap nut) to clean the tarnished jewelry. Apply a small amount of Colgate or Pitambari powder on your silver jewellery and gently scrub with an old toothbrush. For Reetha, soak the nuts in water overnight and wash the jewellery with the natural soapy water.  These chemical free methods help maintain the jewellery's shine.
  • Hacks to remove moisture: Try placing pieces of chalk with your jewellery. The chalk will absorb the moisture in the environment and protect your jewelry from blackening. Reuse moisture-absorbent pouches and keep them along with silver jewellery in airtight containers.
  • Make use of the anti-tarnish paper which Moha provides with every jewellery piece to protect your silver jewellery from tarnishing.
  • Avoid Velvet: While velvet bags may seem luxurious, they can accumulate tarnishing. Opt for plastic boxes instead—they offer convenience and protection against moisture.
  • Avoid spraying perfume directly on your jewellery, its increased concentration can make your jewellery lose their natural colour.

Conclusion:

With these straightforward DIY tips, you can preserve silver jewelries elegance for seasons to come. Let your jewellery shine as bright as the rain-kissed streets, despite the seasonal change.

NOTE: Recycle and reuse plastic bags and boxes for sustainable use to minimize environmental impact.
