Kangna Ranaut in Tanu Weds Manu

Every woman loves that shining pearls and Kundan necklace she wanted to wear with traditional attire, in particular few of them gets darken and looses shine till you wear it next time. Ofcourse you dont wish to let it go because of the look it gives!
Kundan jewelry requires special attention because of the extensive work-manship involved in crafting each product. The following precautions are suggested to take care of your beautiful Kundan jewelry.

 

Kundan in particular, may react to the metals in a jewellery box. Slip it into zip-lock bags or wrap in soft cloth or in aluminium foil to store its sign.
If space is an issue, place the jewellery in between layers of cotton wool and seal it in a good plastic bag.
Never put pressure or weight on jewellery, especially Jadau.
Do not spray perfume, body spray, dye or any other chemicals on any part of Kundan jewelry.
Keep a pouch of desiccant with the piece to protect it from tarnishing due to excessive humidity.
Keep the jewelry away from water or dampness. Water tends to blacken the stone or uncut diamonds and enamel.
Do not use damp cloth or water or any other liquid or soapy solution. If any part of your Kundan jewelry darkens, then use an eraser (the one used for erasing pencil marks) on the darkened portion. Do not even use plain cloth to clean the blackened portion of Kundan. If the blackness is not removed, then take it to the nearest jewellery shop for help.
Handle the silk chord used to adjust the length of the necklace with care. Never wet the chord as it causes the Zari in it to discolour.
