Caring for your fashion jewelry
Fashion jewelry is stylish and wallet-friendly, but is also very delicate. The amount of tarnishing that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. So to prevent them from tarnishing or turning black, follow the below simple tips.
- Put on jewelry last when dressing and take off first when undressing.
- Always wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth eg.spectacle cloth, after worn. This cloth will absorb the sweat or salt water that comes out from our body.
- Store jewelry in sealable plastic bags/ container will help prevent metals from tarnishing.
- Remove jewelry before shower, bath, swimming, and/or applying products (e.g., perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion) as this could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discoloration.
Be mindful that they are still fashion jewelry. The plating may wear off over time as it is only a coating, so practicing care will help a great deal in prolonging their lifespan.
