7 Beautiful Pieces Of Jewellery You Can Invest In For Dhanteras, Instead Of Kitchenware
The festival of Dhanteras falls on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha, making it one of the most auspicious days of the year. The day is more than just about rigorous house cleaning and buying silver coins. It is also a time when we are just getting back to our hometown for Diwali and the festive mirth has started to sprout in every member of our family.
Indian households celebrate Dhanteras with a Puja and buying new metal items for their homes. Traditionally, families save the day for the annual purchase of gold and silver, mostly in the form of utensils used during puja rituals, and coins. But since millennials have gotten really into the festival season as well, the buying habit has shifted to things that they can actually use.
We think the best way to spend our money on Dhanteras would be to invest in some beautiful, yet practical pieces of jewellery. They make a great addition to our bling boxes and can be gifted to loved ones as well. They are so versatile!

The good people over at Gehna also elaborated on how to best care for our jewellery. Take notes, ladies!
While diamonds are generally considered indestructible, they are susceptible to scratches and damages from everyday use. It is advisable to regularly clean your diamonds with soapy water and then wipe down with a damp cloth to dislodge any dirt or debris. Once dry, diamonds should ideally be stored in a fabric-lined case in individual compartments to avoid scratches from other pieces of jewellery.
The omnipresence of gold trinkets in our everyday looks can lead to prolonged exposure to dirt, debris, and humidity. Ensure that your gold pieces are regularly rinsed with a mild soap solution. A soft toothbrush can also be used to gently scrub away any oil or dirt that’s trapped in the design before the pieces are kept to dry on a lint-free cloth.
The physical and chemical composition of silver as a metal means that it is prone to oxidization and tarnishing upon contact with humidity and chemicals. To halt the process of corrosion, treat your silver pieces to a gentle scrub with toothpaste before wiping it away with a soft cloth.
While platinum doesn’t change colour over time, regular maintenance can keep its appearance as lustrous as the day you brought it home. If you don’t have a specialized jewellery cleaning solution at hand, opt for a gentle solution of soap and warm water, before rubbing it with a soft cloth.
