Terracotta is an Italian word which means ‘baked earth’ and is made of natural clay. It is used to make deities and decor items. Terracotta jewellery is interestingly one of the oldest forms of jewellery. But lately, the beauty that is terracotta jewellery has also caught the eyes of fashionistas and people have started loving it. Terracotta jewellery has a very chic and boho feel about it.

The jewellery is completely natural and handmade, which is one of its main selling points.

It is modelled out of clay, baked to perfection and then painted in various hues and shades, and embellished. Because of the fact that is made by hand from scratch, it is very easy to personalise terracotta jewellery according to your tastes and preferences.

How to take care of your terracotta jewellery

Since terracotta jewellery is made of clay, it is prone to breakage. If not taken care of properly, it can be ruined within seconds. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Always keep your terracotta jewellery in a separate box, covered with a soft cloth. Line the box with cotton before you store the jewellery in it.
  2. Clean the jewellery every once in a while to keep it dust free and shiny.
  3. Do not pair terracotta jewellery with any other metal jewellery as that might cause scratches to the paint and ruin the look.
  4. Do not let it come in direct contact with perfumes or deodorants so as to keep the paint intact and stain-free.
