Glass bangles, husband and luck
Often you will see Indian women wearing huge armfuls of glass bangles, even while doing day-to-day chores. It is said that bangles bring safety and luck to ones husband. If a woman breaks glass bangles especially a large amount of them her husband is in danger.
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.
Cleaning is must in gemstone
For stubborn dirt, a soft brush can also be used on these types of stones. In hot environments, the heat can cause the water to evaporate and discolor an opal. Jewellers use mechanical cleaning procedures to clean gemstones. Some of these methods can be harmful if done incorrectly, so ensure that the cleaning is being performed by a qualified professional.
One common method is ultrasonic cleaning, which uses frequency waves to clean gemstones. They can be cleaned in the same mild detergent and water solution as other gemstones, and delicately scrubbed with a very soft brush. Designer jewellery can cover the gamut of rings, engagement and wedding rings, watches, necklaces and pendants, bracelets and anklets, cuff links, tiaras and other unusual pieces.
Gems are silicates which can be very stable, hard minerals. Like gemstones, one of the characteristics of a precious metal is its rarity. A few gems are oxides and only one gem, diamond, is composed of a single element, carbon. Often, new names will be created for ordinary sounding minerals which sound prettier or more valuable, such as Moldavite for the green variety of tektites.
It could not be "precious" if it were common! This means that the metal must be malleable, that it can be bent, hammered, or otherwise shaped. Two other characteristics are also important. There are also many gemstones that are not true minerals, but which are gemstone varieties of recognized minerals.
