Renew The Life Of Your Gold Jewellery By Maintaining It

by shampoooo

Every woman is different and has a different take on life. While some experiment with their life, others simply follow the path determined by others. Whatever may be the geographical differences or their financial status, every woman has a common love for jewellery irrespective of their taste and preferences. Although, fascination for gold jewellery exists among both men and women, many of them fail to execute the responsibility that comes along with these priceless possessions. All kinds of jewellery needs to be maintained and stored properly to preserve its appearance and increase its longevity.

Although, all kinds of jewellery need utmost care to preserve its look, Indian jewellery requires more attention, due to its intricate karigari and spectacular designs. The perfect way to preserve the lustre and shine of your stone studded jewellery is by keeping them in the box that it comes with. As these boxes have a soft velvet satin finish, they provide a good amount of cushioning for the jewellery and helps maintain its shape and shine. If you don’t wish to use a box, then use a soft velvet cloth to wrap your gold ornaments in. When stored, gold ornaments should never come in contact with direct sunlight and it should not be stored in a way where they lie across each other. Jewellery should always be stored parallel in a single way to prevent scratches and loosening of stones.

While cleaning gold jewellery, it is essential to avoid any harsh chemicals, soaps, oil or cleaning powders, as it will ruin the appearance of the jewellery making it uneven and dull. Ideally one should use their jewellery only when required and should avoid using it while performing house-hold chores. Wearing jewellery with designs regularly, would lead to the accumulation of dir and make it lose its shine. Ornaments are also prone to lose its shine, if it comes in contact with make-up and perfume.

Ideally, it is better to avoid cleaning any Indian jewellery by yourself, if it has precious stones or is painted. Gold ornaments should be cleansed with warm diluted dish washing liquids to preserve its appearance and shine. Ornaments should be soaked in some diluted detergent and gently dried after rinsing it with plain water. For removing hardened stains and dirt, some regular toothpaste should be rubbed with the help of a small piece of cotton. To drain excess water from the jewellery a soft cloth should be used. Tissues should be totally avoided as they may leave residues or form scratches on the jewellery. Ideally, one should give their jewellery professional care at least once a year in case they use it frequently. Frequent cleaning and proper maintenance will redeem the look of the jewellery, making it appear brand new even after using it for decades.

Budget Fails To Dazzle Gems And Jewellery Sector

by shampoooo

The Union Budget 2010-11 has failed to please the Indian gems and jewellery sector, which was expecting the government to provide tax relief. In fact, contrary to the expectations of small-scale units, the Union finance minister (FM), Pranab Mukherjee has decided to hike the customs duty on gold and silver, thereby disappointing the gems and jewellery units.

Discontent with Budget

SME jewellery units were expecting this Union Budget to serve as a perfect medium to address various issues and fulfil the requirements of the industry in order to help them recover from the adverse impact of the global economic downturn. However, the Budget has failed to evoke a positive response from the SME-dominated sector.

Although exports have entered the green zone, recording steady growth since the past few months, we were expecting the government to announce some key measures in the Union Budget 2010-11 in order to sustain the upward trend. However, this did not happen. The FM could have undertaken more initiatives to help SMEs in the gems and jewellery sector emerge from the recessionary pressures, said Vijay Soni, proprietor of Mahabir Jewellers, a mid-sized wholesaler of gold, kundan jadau and diamond jewellery in Kolkata.

Besides, Indias gems and jewellery sector is up in arms over its exclusion from select export sectors, which can avail the 2% interest subvention scheme for one more year till March 31, 2011.

With gems and jewellery sector not being extended the benefits of concessional export finance scheme, SMEs in the industry would be hurt the most as cost of manufacturing would surge, thereby leading to erosion of their competitiveness and in turn affect exports, said B Bhattar, director of Bhattar & Sons, a small-sized jewellery store in Kolhapur, Maharashtra.

Moreover, SME jewellery units and industry representatives further fear that the domestic gold and silver jewellery sales may plunge in the coming months due to the increase in excise duty, which in turn may lead to job losses in the sector.


Understanding Gemstones in Jewellery – Garnet

by shampoooo

Garnet stones can be found in a wide variety of locations including Kenya, Brazil and Canada. It has been used throughout history and its name is derived from the Latin word for seed ‘granatus’ due to the colour similarities to pomegranate seeds. There are twenty-nine different types of garnet appearing in a wide rainbow of colours from red and orange to green, yellow and pink. The most common form of garnet found in jewellery is the red semi-precious gemstone pyrope, although it is generally referred to as garnet. Pyrope derives its name from the Greek word ‘pyropos’, meaning ‘fiery eyed’.

The combination of its dazzling beauty, versatility and relative affordability has made this beautiful gemstone very popular, particularly with jewellery designers. Given the name the ‘fashion gem’ of the eighteenth and nineteenth century garnets are very versatile lending themselves to a variety of different forms of jewellery from rings to pendants. Garnets soft, warm colour is shown to its best advantage when set in yellow and gold jewellery.

The MOH scale measures a gems relative hardeness on a scale of one to ten based on the stones ‘scratchability’. Diamond is the hardest at ten, while garnet measures seven and a half, making it a relatively hardwearing stone. Garnet is a very durable gemstone which makes it perfect for use in jewellery however care must be taken to ensure the item does not become damaged and remains looking its glorious best. It is recommended that garnet jewellery is removed when doing heavy work to protect the stone from accidental knocks and bumps and damage. Garnets should be cleaned using warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush to remove any dirt from behind the stone.

Not only does this stone look so beautiful and it is relatively easy to care for, it is also swamped in legend and folk stories. It is believed to have mystical powers and that when it is worn close to the body it provides energy and courage. It is also said to encourage good health and that it will enhance the wearer’s imagination. The garnet symbolises fire, courage, truth, compassion and also protects travellers. It is the birth stone for January.

I hope that this article goes someway to explain the background, beliefs and characteristics of this striking gemstone and that you know feel equipped with the knowledge and know how to select and care for your garnet jewellery.


Pearl Bridal Jewellery – Is it right for you

by shampoooo

Since there are lots different styles of wedding jewellery such as pearl, crystal and diamante, it can be hard to pick type is right for you.

As the choice is difficult and youre unusually indecisive you may have left it to the last minute and now youre panicking.

If you’re not sure whether pearl wedding jewellery is for you then answer the following questions:

Is there pearls on your bridal gown?

Do you have items of bridal jewellery that you want to wear on the day which have pearls in them?

Do you adore the gentle sheen of pearls?

Do you want to achieve a classic timeless appearance?

If you’ve answered yes to the majority of the above questions then there’s a high possibility that pearl bridal jewellery is right for you. Which takes you to your next question, do you want faux pearls or fresh water pearls? You may perceive faux pearls to be cheap plastic imitation and some are but glass pearls are also used and while they aren’t fresh water pearls they are better quality faux pearls.

The choice between faux pearls and real pearls with come down to the cost as fresh water pearls are generally more expensive and the design of the wedding jewellery. I would advise you contact the seller and check they are glass and not plastic pearls before you buy so you know you’re getting a good product. Sometimes you aren’t given the option of choosing your pearl type for the design of bridal jewellery you want to buy, so you will need to settle for the pearl type that is contained within the jewellery. However if it is a handcrafted piece try asking the designer if they are willing to change the pearls for you, many will if the jewellery is made to order.

ordinating designs in a different colour for your bridesmaids or for yourself if you wanted something more colourful.

Is pearl bridal jewellery right for you? If you havent already revisit the questions and if youve responded yes to the majority of them, then you already have your answer.
