Life gets busy and your jewelry can get neglected! For at-home cleaning, it is recommended to clean your daily wearables (ie a ring) once a week. For items that are worn a little less frequently, clean them once a month. You may try simple home DIY remedy such as brushing the jewelry with toothbrush (with soft bristles only as you do not want to scratch the jewelry) coupled with a mixture of mild soap and lukewarm water. Dry the jewelry thoroughly after cleaning, do not let the jewelry remain wet in the open air. You may also wipe your jewelry using cotton balls, microfiber polishing cloth and jewelry wipes.
Think of your jewelry like your skin, sunlight can damage the color and clarity just as easily as you could get a sunburn. Be sure to store fine pieces in the pouch or box that them come in with, and keep the jewelry box away from direct sunlight. Our gift box doubles as a jewelry box while the jewel bag can be used as a polishing cloth.
Remove your jewelry when you are doing outdoor activities such as swimming (pool and beach), exercising with equipment, weight lifting and amusement parks rides (better not risk it!).You do not want to risk your jewelry getting scratched, dented or lost. It is also not recommended to wear your jewelry to the sauna and spa. Exposure to bodily fluids like sweat and oil as well as chlorine and salt water will only damage your jewelry in the long run. Due to the nature of the materials, tarnish will definitely occur over time. There is no fixed time frame as to when tarnish will happen because tarnishing is highly influenced by the acidity of your skin as well.
