Always remove jewelry before swimming, bathing, gardening and applying hairsprays, lotions and cosmetics to avoid exposure to chemicals. Do not soak beaded pieces in water or cleaning solutions as this will damage the beading thread. To keep your jewelry looking its best, certain care should be taken in the cleaning and storing of each piece.
Carefully wipe with a damp cloth periodically to remove oils and perspiration, dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
Same care as for semi-precious stones. Store pearls wrapped in a soft chamois to prevent scratching. NEVER store pearls in a plastic bag.
Polish sterling silver and precious metals with a polishing cloth. Sterling tarnishes naturally and storing in a plastic zip bag will slow the process.
The care you give will provide years of pleasurable wear.
