As general tips for good use of your jewelry are the following:
- Avoid direct contact with creams, cosmetics, hair styling products and perfumes. Body creams and cosmetics due to various chemical elements that they contain affect the metal glaze causing the well-known tan as well as the same with perfumes because they contain essential oils and alcohol. We never spray perfumes near or on the jewelry. Body creams and other cosmetics, it is good to apply long before you wear your jewelry. Even better would be to wear your jewelry last, when you get dressed.
- Do not wear your jewelry while sleeping as the chains may be knocked or pulled and broken.
- Avoid bumps and abrasions which can cause permanent marks and damage to the metal as well as to the stones.
- Never bring your jewelry into contact with household cleaning products (eg bleach, etc.). Exposure to chemicals can damage or discolor precious metals and may damage some colored stones.
- Do not wear your jewelry in the bathroom or pool with chlorine. Washing your hands or bathing can leave soap scum under the stones of your favorite ring or various chemicals can permanently damage the surface of your pearls and other fine or porous gemstones such as turquoise.
- Do not wear jewelry when doing physical activities such as household, gardening or sports activities.
- When removing the jewelry, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth to remove any oils and sweat and store each piece of jewelry separately in a box lined with fabric.
- Avoid direct sunlight and heat. Light and heat can affect the durability and color of colored gemstones. Pearls and other sensitive materials can be bleached under extreme exposure to light. Excessive heat and sudden changes in temperature can also damage some gemstones. The heat can easily remove the natural moisture that gemstones need to maintain their beauty. Pearls, for example, can dry out, break and discolor. Opals can turn white or brown, develop tiny cracks and lose their color change.
