The monsoon season can be a difficult time given all the unexpected drizzles, the moisture laden air and the puddles. Given these circumstances choosing the right jewelry can be quite a task. We have all probably been in that spot where water from the rain managed to ruin our jewelry completely! Therefore, in order to keep our jewelry safe from the downpour, we need to proceed with caution and decide early on, what kind of jewelry will be best during these humid months!
For instance, jewelry made of thread, tassels and fabric such as jute and leather or suede is advised against during the monsoon season. You should also refrain from wearing accessories that rusts easily. Humidity causes some metals to start corroding which is why you should keep trinkets made of such metals wrapped in cotton and tucked away during the monsoon months!
Here are some tips and tricks to help you pick the perfect jewelry this monsoon without having to take it off when it rains:
You should avoid jewelry made of thread and fabric such as jute at all costs because it will get completely ruined when it rains. You should also avoid wooden jewelry because wood tends to swell up in humid climes.
Jewelry made of recycled materials such as acrylic, plastic and rubber is highly recommended during these months. None of these materials can be damaged if it starts raining unexpectedly. Even if the surface does get a little wet you can always pat it dry with the help of a dry cloth later. Get a pair of Leigh Miller glass hoop earrings and you’re good to go!
Pearls tend to lose their luster when exposed to excessive water and moisture. Even though pearls are appropriate for every occasion but they are just not the kind of jewelry you should wear during the monsoon months!
Beads whether they’re made of glass or otherwise make the best kind of monsoon jewelry. Except for certain kinds of wooden beads, beads make the perfect minimalistic go-to jewelry for monsoon! Enameled jewelry is also moisture resistant. You can opt for a vibrant pair of enameled earrings to go with your outfit this monsoon.
