There are some basic guidelines when wearing jewelry:
Remove Jewelry During Household Chores – When performing manual tasks, remove your jewelry to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids. Some chores that should be avoided when wearing jewelry include kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house and other common household chores.
Makeup – Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotions can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry. Putting jewelry on after applying these will limit exposure to jewelry and prevent any potential damage.
Swimming Pools and Spas – Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and even structural damage. We would strongly suggest that all jewelry is removed before entering the pool or spa.
Sports – Blows during sports can damage jewelry. All jewelry should be removed when in the gym, climbing or participating in any physical sport.
Remove your jewelry before bathing
Remove all jewelry before showering or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to form, making it appear dull.
Use jewelry polishing cloths for best results
Polish silver or gold with a jewelry polishing cloth for best results. Use of tissue or paper towels can cause scratches because of fibers in these products.
