Please handle jewelry with care to keep it looking it’s best. Avoid contact with water, perfume, cosmetics or other chemicals. Take off the jewelry when sleeping. Lightly wipe the jewelry with a soft cloth to clean. Use a soft jewelry bag, a ziplock or jewelry box to store your pieces. To extend the life of gold plating, please avoid hard contact which could cause scratches. Every couple weeks very gently clean gold plated parts with warm water and basic soap, then carefully wipe them down with a soft cloth to restore shine.
