Preventative care is always easier than aftercare! These are two things to look out for that can damage jewelry;
Chemicals: Even enduring materials like gold and silver can be worn down by certain chemicals. Some products such as perfume, lotion, soap or sunscreen contain chemicals that are harmful to jewelry, so it’s best to avoid getting them on your piece. Chemicals and contaminants in water such as chlorine can result in tarnished or dull-looking jewelry. It’s recommended to remove any jewelry before going in the shower, pool, etc.
Physical Damage: Nobody likes scratched, dinged or broken jewelry. Exercising and sleeping with jewelry on are common ways for damage to happen, so it’s always best to be safe and remove your jewelry before hitting the gym, playing sports or going to bed.
