COOL TIPS FOR JEWELRY CARE IN SUMMER!

Warm, bright summer is here with promises of long vacations, beach getaways, pool parties and more! And we do need to plan what all things to pack and how. It is the same with jewelry…a bit of care and caution is needed when we carry ornaments while going places.

  • If you are headed for the beach, then sunbathe without your jewelry. Applying sunscreen or other lotions usually coats the gemstones and reduces their reflective and refractive power. Which makes them sparkle less. Also, clean your valuables regularly.

  • Also remove all your precious bling before entering a hot tub or a swimming pool. Just like salt water of the sea, the chlorine water too, can harm or discolor metals like gold or platinum and polish of gemstones.

  • If you pack your jewelry all together, they might get jumbled. Bracelets or rings can get tangled with chains, a diamond piece can scratch a pearl and so on. To prevent any kind of damage, use our efficient organizers to keep each piece in a different slot and cushioned against soft lining. Check out more: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-jewellery-care

  • Always make sure that the hotel you check into, has a safe deposit vault. Keep your valuables there. Never leave your fine jewelry unattended in the hotel room, car rental or in the lounge, even for a few moments!

  • If you are shopping for jewelry in a new destination on your trip, do make sure that the seller has good reputation and has been in business for many years. It might also help to check their ratings or reviews.

  • Get your jewelry professionally cleaned by a reputed jeweler, after coming back from your vacation. This will help maintain their luster and shine.

  • If you take along an expensive piece of ornament on your holiday, like your wedding ring, family heirloom or a valuable watch, then ensure that it is fully insured. Consult an insurance agent before going on your trip.

WHITE WEDDING DECOR IDEAS

Don’t you just love white weddings? They are so classy and eternally romantic! Here are some creative ideas for such a fairytale wedding

The first thing that comes to our mind is flowers. Go for all white flower decorations with lilies, orchids, hydrangeas, roses and gardenias. You can set the tables with gorgeous candelabras topped with tons of blooms and white pillar candles. Or you can also create a canopy like floral structure with numerous votive candles producing charming illumination. Make sure that seating arrangement is plush, comfortable and in white or any metallic finish.

Beautiful centerpieces are obviously a must. Combine the pristine white flowers with silver, white ceramic or crystal vases and cozy white candles for a magical feast! If you want a hint of color then try adding ripe lemons to the flower arrangement! http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-flowers

For a more dazzling effect, you can use silver disco balls and white string lights with flowers.

To make the look of an all white wedding more exciting, you can add touches of gleaming metallic color to the décor. Like these goblets and place cards are gold accented and white linen napkins are gold embroidered. Platinum or silver accents will add that sparkle too.

Invitation and menu cards can be in classic black and white combination. Or they can be engraved in gold and silver for that opulent touch.

For an outdoor wedding or an elegant cocktail party, a clear topped see through tent will look dramatic! You can suspend white and platinum glowing globes to get that enchanting, shimmering lighting.

If you are going for all white drapes, they have to be spotless and very good quality. It’s crucial to choose linen which looks bright, has different layers or textures to create an interesting look. Subtle white on white patterns can look great too!

Want to go over the top and steal the show? An elaborate ice bar will be an unique showstopper with the couple’s monogram on it!

The bride’s bouquet can have any white flower she loves. It can also have a hint of pink, plum or occasional strands of fern.

When it comes to the food, it will be almost impossible and not really appealing to have an all white course! So ideally you can make a few items “white themed”. An eggnog cocktail or even a pink cocktail with dainty white decorative stirrer will be great!

Delicacies in white sauce or cookies and pastries with white icing and edible silver pearls can be another choice.

The cake can be all white or a delectable and glimmering combination of silver and white.

The bridal gown will obviously be a glorious shade of white. But it would also be a great idea to get white dresses for the bridesmaids!

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PRECIOUS JEWELRY

indian roots

Whether you bought that gorgeous pair of earrings yourself, or were gifted that sparkling bracelet by a loved one or were passed on the famous necklace your family has owned over years…jewelry has always been close to a woman’s heart! So it’s good to care for them so that they can be cherished for generations…here’s how:

Tips for wearing jewelry:

why of fashion

1) Never wear jewelry while performing tasks like house cleaning, cooking, gardening to avoid damage from chemicals, sweat etc.

2) Apply makeup before wearing jewelry to ensure minimum exposure to chemicals in perfume, sprays, lotions and cosmetics

3) Never wear jewelry in swimming pools or spas, to avoid reaction with chlorine water which can cause discoloration or permanent damage.

4) Never wear jewelry during any form of contact sports to prevent physical damage.

Tips for cleaning jewelry:

maipearls

1) Remove any ornament before bathing because soap can make it appear dull over time.

2) Professional jewelry polishing cloths or svelte is best for cleaning jewelry. Tissues or paper towels might cause scratches.

3) Regular cleaning is ideal. Remember that alcohol solution can do wonders but bleach is a disaster! Use warm water while cleaning.

4) If jewelry is damaged or broken, don’t clean it before repair…the problem might worsen.

5) Since prevention is always better than cure, regularly check your ornaments for loose stones or any kind of damage.

Tips for jewelry repair: 

Custom-Jewelry-Repair-Buffalo-NY

1) Try to prevent any damage as much as possible to keep costly repairs away. Regular inspection helps!

2) Before trusting a jeweler with the repair, check for reviews and referrals of their work.

3) Be careful when the jeweler quotes a price for the repair. They should ideally have a standard price for a particular repair.

4) Learn exactly how the repair is going to be done.The procedure should be explained to you clearly so that you know, it will be done correctly.

5) While picking up a repaired piece, ensure that it has been done as requested and there are no flaws. Also the item should be perfectly cleaned and polished.

Storing and organizing jewelry:

1) The best way to keep your jewelry safe is to organize them neatly in a jewelry box. At Uberlyfe we have a host of boxes to suit myriad needs…compact, travel friendly ones, large spacious ones for use at home and even locker sized ones for the bank!! Available in different styles, colors and designs, they are simply awesome for all your “precious” requirements. All boxes are made from premium MDF with leatherette outside and velvet inside.

2)  To prevent tarnishing of ornaments, keep anti-tarnish strips in the organizers to absorb oxidants!

3) Maintaining a detailed description, value and photograph of each jewelry piece is very useful in any unfortunate lost or stolen situation.

4) Always use an organizer while travelling with jewelry to prevent any damage or misplacement.

CAN YOU EVER HAVE ENOUGH SPACE?

Yes you can, if you know how to get more out of the space available already!! Most of the sleep we lose over where and how to keep everything, is mainly because something is wrong with the way we organize things. And all of us go through this phase almost on a regular basis. Exasperating right? This is exactly the reason why we came up with different organizers to make life clutter free and easier…

Our large organizers with divider and double flaps are perfect for sorting and organizing different items like books, magazines, stationery, clothes, toys and anything else you want. We have sober colored ones which you can use in any room of the house and we also have vibrant, animated ones which kids will love! The cool thing is you get to choose the size of the bin as per your need. We also have toy storage boxes which look like houses, simple square ones with cute animal motifs on them and even octagonal ones.  See more:  http://tinyurl.com/napv2e9; http://tinyurl.com/kqtnd2y; http://tinyurl.com/krdrns8

Since we love to play around with designs and colors, we chose adorable combinations for all our toy storage units! It’s hard for an adult to resist them so you can’t blame kids. Why our storage bins are a clever choice to contain any mess? Well the reasons are many! Besides being lightweight, they are collapsible too. So if you are not using it just fold it and tuck it away. They are absolutely safe for kids, being made from soft canvas material. If you are worried about how to keep it clean, don’t fret…a damp cloth is enough to give it a good wipe! These robust bins will last for a long time.

There’s another place where space crunch can make life miserable…your closet or wardrobe. Do you face the problem of clothes spilling out when you open the closet door? Do you hunt madly for every small thing especially when you are in a rush to go to office? Or maybe suddenly one day you discover something buried deep under that you didn’t even know existed? If your answer is “yes” to all these questions, we can definitely help you!

Our clothes storage boxes and inner wear organizers are the solutions you are looking for. Light weight with adequate storage capacity, the clothes organizers are perfect for stashing away both winter woolens and summer shirts. They are collapsible and made from 100% polyester fabric. Steel frames make the box sturdy and help you to stack clothes neatly. The great thing about these is the “viewing window” on 2 sides! So you can easily see what’s inside without opening the box at all! Also, your options become flexible when it comes to keeping the box somewhere…you don’t need to restrict yourself to the closet. Just keep it wherever you have a little space like under the bed or in the attic or the loft. Now that’s pretty smart!

The 3 piece inner wear organizers are ideal for managing under wear, ties, socks, scarves, handkerchiefs, belts, or any small accessory. They are lidded and will fit in any drawer…this way you will know where to find what. See more: http://tinyurl.com/lnekw9r

Most importantly, the different types of slots will help you organize necklaces, pendants, earrings, finger rings, bangles and even silver or gold coins…See more: http://tinyurl.com/n6smjfy
