Constantly dropping, banging, or catching the piece will weaken it over time. Be especially aware of your fingers when wearing rings, and remove them for any intense activity such as cleaning, gardening, or exercising.
- No cleaning
Habitual cleaning will remove skin oils, dirt, and other surface residues that can stick to jewellery. It is recommended to use a soft cloth or toothbrush, dipped in warm soapy water and gently scrub the metal.
- No Cosmetics
Using cosmetics, perfume, body lotion and tanning products before wearing jewellery advised to be avoided. The metals come in contact with chemicals can cause discolouration and corrosion. Showering or swimming with jewellery on will also cause discolouration.
