Your jewelry is precious and does require some care and attention on a regular basis. To extend the life of your jewelry, we recommend the following tips to keep your pieces looking their best:
-Take off your jewelry when washing your hands, showering, and when applying makeup, perfume, oils and lotions.
-Do not wear your jewelry to the beach, pool, gym, or during strenuous activities. These environments may be too harsh on your jewelry and could cause scratches, dents, or even cause a diamond to fall out. We also recommend removing jewelry before bed.
-Avoid putting your jewelry too close to sources of intense heat such as tanning beds, saunas, hot tubs, spas, etc.
-Store your jewelry in an anti-tarnish pouch or in separate mini plastic zip-lock bags (made of Mylar or Polyethylene) to avoid tarnish and metals rubbing against each other. Do not store jewelry in the bathroom.
-To avoid tangled or knotted necklaces, clasp the necklace when removing it. If storing in a plastic zip-lock bag, it helps to zip-lock the clasp outside the bag so the necklace does not tangle inside the bag.
When at home, clean your jewelry using lukewarm water, a little bit of mild soap, and dry with a soft cloth. For best results, have a professional jeweler clean your piece to ensure longevity.
