Fine jewelry should be treated with care. It is best practice to remove jewelry when coming home, and to put it back on when leaving. This can lengthen the life of a piece dramatically, and can lessen the chances of damaging an item. Diamond slices can be particularly delicate, especially in rings; be sure not to put pressure on the surface of the stone. Pearls and opals are quite soft and are easily scratched; wear them with care. 

To clean most items, we recommend using a chemical-free dish soap, warm water, and a soft toothbrush regularly. Translucent stones with closed backings should not be submerged in water, and should not come into contact with lotions, oils, or creams.
