With all that power a woman and her bangles wield, a husband better be on his best behavior if he knows what's good for him! This traditional Indian holiday is a celebration. The smaller the bangles around your wrist, the less likely they are to break. Many Indian women participate in every year that honors their husbands and their god-sisters.
Pearls come in a variety of colors and shapes
A high quality pearl will have a lustrous, shiny surface, strong reflections, and a good contrast between its light and dark areas. Pearls come in a variety of colors. That colors are white, gray, black and yellow. The shapes of pearls can be round, baroque, symmetrical, or irregular. The most exquisite and expensive pearls are the sphere-like round pearls.
But still your pearls should have minimal blemishes on the surface such as pits, cracks, or discoloration. Necklaces with pearls can have single or double strands. The single strands usually have larger, more expensive pearls than the double strands. Pearls that appear completely flawless are usually fakes. Authentic pearl earrings should match in size and their look and feel.
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.
