TIPS TO GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR JEWELRY
– Avoid contact with cosmetics such as hairspray, lotion, perfume, shaving cream, soap, etc. These products can leave a residue on jewelry, creating a dull film that is difficult to remove. If possible let beauty products absorb into your skin before putting on your jewelry.
– Remove your jewelry before doing housework. Household cleaners can cause hard-to-remove build-up and leave dulling scratches. Always remove your jewelry before working with chlorine bleach.
– Keep your jewelry away from extreme heat and cold. Rapid increases in temperature may cause fractures in some gemstones.
– Store each piece of jewelry individually (i.e., in individual containers, compartments, pouches or bags). Metal can scratch or scuff other metal.
– For bracelets and necklaces, always fasten the clasp when storing to reduce tangling.
– Ensure that your jewelry is completely dry before placing it in an enclosed space. Moisture fosters tarnish and can weaken springs and clasps. Certain gemstones may also suffer from water damage.
