How To Take Care of Your Jewelry
General Jewelry Care:
Your jewelry is meant for wearing. Your beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings are of no use if you can't show them off to the world. While wearing your best pieces can help you feel your best, it also puts them at risk.
Even though jewelry is made to be worn, repeatedly wearing it can cause it to break, fall off or wear down. The more we love and wear our jewelry, the more it deteriorates.
Luckily, you can slow down this process with just a few simple steps and precautions:
Keep it dry: Getting jewelry wet is always bad. It can lead to cracks, a lack of shine, and water stains.
Keep it away from chemicals: This might seem obvious, but you can find harmful chemicals in lotions, perfumes, and hairspray. Keep your jewelry away from these products.
Put it on last: To avoid chemicals, put your jewelry on last and take it off first.
Rotate jewelry: Don't wear the same piece every day. Too much use will wear it down sooner. Give your other jewelry some love!
Pearls benefit from being worn and absorbing the natural oils on your skin. While they benefit from moisture, they should not be submerged in water. Gently wipe them with a soft cloth before putting them away. Store separately from other jewelry.
