One of the biggest factors that affect the entire look of our jewellery is our skin tone. Always select that kind of jewellery which suits our skin tone.
People who have fair skin tone should prefer some cold metal jewellery such as, diamond jewellery, white gold, platinum, and silver jewellery. This will nutrify their skin tone and give a brighter look.

And unfortunately, you can’t wear that jewellery again. So, it is mandatory to remove every jewellery before going to shower.
If you are going to the swimming pool then without fail we should remove your jewellery, because the chlorine present in pool water distrains and weakens the jewellery.
3. Not cleaning your jewellery
As we wear jewellery on the neck, hands, and of course in legs, in short, the jewellery is in direct contact with our skin, so it should be properly washed and cleaned. If this jewelllery is not clean or not maintained properly then it may lead to skin inflammation, skin allergies, and many skin-related problems. So it is mandatory to clean our jewellery at least once in 6 months. Cleaning of jewellery can be done by using a gentle soap bar that has a mild base content.
Either you can use ready-made jewellery washing liquids from markets. You just have to pour some amount of this washing liquid in water and dip the jewellery for at least 2-3 hours, After this, you can wash the jewellery with normal water. This step can make your jewellery look new as well as make the jewellery germs-free.

Once the jewellery came in contact with water or sunlight, it starts to damage. So storing your jewellery is hence another point you should keep in mind.
5. Wearing appropriate jewellery concerning the occasion
You should wear jewellery according to the function. Because every occasion has its fashion and trend.
If you are going for a wedding-like occasion, heavy jewellery like stonework, mirror work jewellery is best suited. But if you wear western jewellery in a traditional outfit then it will not look good.
Events like kitty parties, small business parties, simple and stud jewellery work well.
Wearing a piece of heavy work jewellery on Kurtis will make an extraordinary look. So you should avoid heavy work jewellery on the simple Kurtis, you should wear simple and stud jewellery, that will give you an adoring look.

8. Always check the size of jewellery before buying
Before buying any of the jewellery it is necessary to check the proper size of it. The size of that jewellery should neither be too large nor too small.
While buying any ring you should know the actual size of your finger. If by mistake the size of the ring is too small, then it will not go in your finger. And if is too loose then there is the fear of dropping.
Similarly, the size of the necklace should be a little bit loose than the size of the neck. Because if it is too tight, there is the danger of getting suffocated.
You should buy proper size earrings which fit in your piercing. Do prefer to buy those types of earrings which have a thin diameter hook, so that they can easily get fitted in any piercing.
