Remove your jewelry when engaging in activities that risk impact or exposure to chemicals (e.g. work, sports or housework). Protect your jewelry (and your skin) by wearing rubber gloves when engaging in such activities
While rings and bracelets are most affected
by daily wear, earrings, necklaces and even pendants are subject to
chemical damage, especially if worn while make-up, fragrances and hair
products are applied.
You may consider having a jeweler restring your pearl or bead necklaces every two years (or annually if you wear them frequently).
Cleaning your Jewelry
The safest method of cleaning most jewelry is to use a mild warm
soapy water solution and a soft brush, patting dry with a soft cloth.
Check frequently for loose gems and clasps before wearing your jewelry.
Concider not to store your jewelry in piles. This can cause your gems and metal jewelry scratching each other. Store the jewelry in separate sections of a jewelry box or wrap them separately in velvet, paper or silk.
