Prohibit the use of liquid jewelry cleaners. Most cleaners contain harsh chemical that could potentially remove or destroy finishes. Any alcohol based products can tarnish gold and silver plating irreparably.
Remove jewelry before bathing or showering (soap or chemical cleaning fluids can cause a film to form, making it appear dull and dingy).
Put jewelry on after applying makeup and/or sunscreen (cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes, lotions and sunscreens can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry or temporarily cause dark coloring of skin).
Don’t wear jewelry in swimming pools and spas (chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and even structural damage).
Remove jewelry before cleaning and/or housework (harsh chemicals are found in all types of cleaners and can take a toll on jewelry, stripping the metals and causing discoloration).
