We share with you some tips to keep the handcrafted pieces of silk thread earrings safe and clean.

1. Keep away from liquids

Always keep your silk thread earrings away from water and any other type of liquids. Do not wear it while getting your hair done for the occasion. A good rule of thumb is to put on your jewellery at last and take it off first. You do not want the hair spray or curling iron to find a way to ruin it.

2. Handle with care

To prevent damage, do not drop the earrings on the floor as stones and other embellishments may come off. They are very delicate jewellery pieces that have been made for special occasions and throwing it off or misplacing them makes it a wardrobe malfunction that you do not want to face especially before the wedding.

3. Avoid chemicals

Keep your handmade earrings away from perfumes, deos, and cosmetics as these products can cause decolourisation of your jewellery. Make sure to wear them after applying lotion, make-up, and wearing perfume.

4. Don’t put pressure

While wearing and taking off the earrings, do not put a lot of pressure on the embellishments as they can fall down due to their delicate nature.

5. Store Properly

Post usage, store silk thread jewellery pieces in a plastic box to avoid dust and moisture. Also, make sure to keep plain earrings and embellished earrings in separate boxes.
