To ensure that your metals retain their best appearance it is best to store your jewelry in sealed bags to slow oxidation of the metals. Always store jewelry away from bright lights so that the original brilliance of any stones or crystals is maintained. Protect your jewelry from direct contact with chemicals including hair products, lotions or perfumes.
An occasional gentle soap (such as Dove) and water wash and thorough rinse in tepid water will remove natural skin oils, which can cause dulling or oxidation. For metal items, a gentle polishing cloth works well, too. We highly recommend the Sunshine brand cloth available through online retailers. Our jewelry should never be dipped in liquid jewelry cleaner.
