Tips to keep your jewelry looking its best

  1. Remove your jewelry before you swim or shower - jewelry is best preserved when it is kept dry.

  2. Remove your jewelry before participating in activities that will cause you to sweat a lot.

  3. Wait to put on your jewelry until after you have applied lotion, makeup or perfume.

  4. Remove jewelry if you will be bringing it into contact with something hard. (For example if you are lifting weights or gardening).

  5. Store your jewelry in a closed box or baggie to prevent tarnish from oxidization and moisture.

  6. To restore the luster and shine of your jewelry, use a jewelry cloth or soft cotton cloth to gently buff the piece.

  7. To clean sterling silver jewelry that has tarnished, use a gentle silver cleaning solution and rub gently with a jewelry cloth. If the piece has been oxidized, this means it has been purposely darkened in parts to bring out the detail - be extra gentle or even avoid cleaning these parts as it can remove the oxidization.
