By following a few simple guidelines below you can make your favourite pieces of jewelry last longer. All jewelry will eventually wear down, the plating will wear off and the colour will faint, turn dark and start to tarnish. This is unavoidable, since precious metals and platings react with oxygen in the air.
Wear jewellery for appropriate tasks only. Avoid wearing jewellery when showering, swimming, sunbathing, cleaning, gardening or performing sports activities.
Always protect your jewelry from sharp blows, scratching, sunlight and extreme heat or cold. Do not let your jewelry come into contact with nail polish remover, perfume, hairspray, detergents and other chemicals.
Store your jewelry safely in a soft box or pouch. Try to keep your jewelry pieces apart when storing them.
Clean your jewelry regularly. For daily cleansing use hot water with a drop of mild detergent and a soft cloth. From time to time you can use a professional jewelry cleaning product.
