To best protect your jewelry, please remove rings when washing your hands and all pieces when applying beauty products, applying lotion and cleaning the house.
Nickel/lead free, white bronze, and gold plated jewelry are not 100% tarnish free, so taking extra care of removing them when you come in contact with water, sweat, perfumes, and lotions will prolong the life.
Jewlery should not be worn while swimming as chlorine and salt water can damage it.
When you aren't wearing your jewelry they are best stored in an anti-tarnish bag.
All Nickel Free, White Bronze, and Gold Plated pieces should only be cleaned with a cloth damp from sudsy dish soap and water. Do not submerge the piece into water, use cloth as cleaning tool. Use a cloth damp from just water to "rinse" off any suds, pat dry and place upside down so no water seeps into the settings.
For Stainless Steel jewelry, use a drop of dish soap on a damp rag to clean any buildup or residue, then rinse with warm water. Also using one tbsp of white vinegar with a damp rag will help remove any stains on pieces.
For Gold Filled jewelry, it should only need to be cleaned occasionally. Mild soapy water and a very soft toothbrush will work for removing any grease/dirt residue or fingerprints from your jewelry. A soft cloth can be used to polish your piece after cleaning.
To clean Sterling Silver jewelry, alternatively to cleaning kits you can buy, a good at home method is mixing two parts baking soda to one part water creating a paste. Gently rub the mixture onto the jewelry, rinse, then dry with a soft cloth.
