I recommend soft cloth pouches or small boxes to store your jewelery in when not being worn, this helps to prevent your jewelry from scratching or dulling itself, or other jewelry.
Use a soft, dampened cloth to clean your gemstone and precious metal jewelry. You can also use a special polishing cloth to clean your sterling pieces. Do not use ultrasonic cleaners or other cleaners with abrasive chemicals.
Always remove jewelry before showering or bathing and never swim while wearing your jewelry – if exposed to water, make sure you dry the jewelry piece immediately.
Jewelry may be damaged by direct contact with sprays such as hairsprays, perfumes, deodorants or detergents and salt water – so it is best if you put your jewelry on as a last step in getting ready to minimize contact with these substances.
