All Jewelry

Taking care your jewelry can help maintain their beauty and durability over time. Here are some tips to ensure they stay in excellent condition:

1. Store Properly: When not wearing your jewellery, store them in a clean, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. It's best to store them spaced in a velvet or silk lined jewelry box or pouch to prevent scratches, tarnishing, and tangling. Avoid placing objects on top of your pieces to prevent bending or other forms of damage.

2. Moisture: Avoid storing them in the bathroom and do not wearing your jewelry while swimming, showering, exercising, or participating in water-related activities including saltwater. Additionally, remove jewelry before applying lotions, perfumes, makeup, or hair products, as these may affect its surface.

3. Clean Gently: To clean jewelry, use a soft, damp warm cloth with a mild soap solution. Gently wipe to remove dirt or oils, then rinse it with a clean, damp cloth and air dry. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface.

4. Keep an eye out: Periodically inspect for any signs of wear, such as loose components. If you notice any issues, stop wear and consider repairing. Tugging can cause a jump ring to open, an open jump ring is an easy repair by gently bending it closed with your fingers or small pliers. Addressing any issues promptly can ensure the longevity of your jewelry.
