Gold bangles are the most expensive ones
Bangles are also an important part of jewellery as earrings and chains. All types of bangles are worn by women in pairs, with one or bunch of bangles in both hands. There are many types of bangles in India such as gold, metal, glass, silver, plastic, platinum and wood.
Gold bangles are the most expensive ones so first bangles were made from metal. To look more attractive Indian women started wearing gold and glass bangles in combination, instead of wearing only gold bangles. These bangles are smooth with some texture or set with stones. They are worn in groups, so any arm movement that you make will create pleasant sounds. In traditional functions like marriage glass bangles are mostly preferred.
Care for Antique Gemstones
Gemstones are a valuable part of any piece of antique jewellery. Common sense is the best preventative measure when caring for any antique gemstone. Although the metal components of ornaments often receive the most attention, gemstone care is equally as important.
Hairdryers should never be used to dry freshly-cleaned gemstones, and no pieces should ever come in contact with chlorine. It is crucial to protect antique jewellery as a whole, in order to maintain as much value as possible over time.
Taking care of gemstones
Steam cleaning is quite effective but can result in thermal shock because of the often-quick temperature change. It can result in cracking because parts of the stone are forced to expand at different times. Most gemstones can be immersed in a solution of mild detergent and warm water.
Likewise with pearls; although soaking can result in discoloration, so this should always be avoided. After soaking for a few minutes, gently clean the stone with a soft brush. Pearls should be dried after cleaning, using a soft towel, and air-blown dry. Extra care should be taken to remove dirt from the bottom of the setting, a common place for build-up to occur.
