Care: Always keep jewelry out of chemical solutions. Do not wear while doing laborious activities that could damage the shape of the metal. Avoid water as some stones react to temperature & mineral content which can alter the colors of the stones. To polish use 00 fine steel wool (hardware stores) or a sunshine polishing cloth (amazon). Wearing your jewelry often is the best way to keep it from tarnishing, as you wear the piece it gets covered in body oils which act as a barrier against oxidation. Be kind to it, and it’ll last.
