Please take off your jewelry before you perform any sports.

Gently clean your jewelry with a soft, clean cloth to maximize the shine.

Sort out your jewelry whether it is imitation, pearl, gold, and silver so that you can use different methods for cleaning them. Place them separately - not jumbled together. If possible, separate gold and all other jewels from each other. Keep pearls especially in a different bag or box. Make sure that pearls' container is not too dry or airtight (they can get damaged).

Use silver ‘dip’ type cleaners for cleaning silver jewelry, (do not use on gold jewelry). It is safer and the most effective way to retain shine in jewelry but don’t leave your jewelry in the dip for more than a few seconds. Make sure you dry them properly post cleaning.

Gemstone jewelry needs to be taken extra care of, and you can do this by cleaning it with a soft brush and mild soapy water. You may also clean these items using jewelry cleaning solution as recommended by a professional.

Try not to expose your jewelry to everyday chemicals such as hair products, cosmetics, perfumes, or direct sunlight, as they are likely to damage them. Keep them away from vinegar, lemon and acidic foods as well.

Avoid getting beaded or threaded pearl jewelry wet, they may lose their sheen. Simply wipe them with a soft damp cloth if they are exposed to cosmetics or perfume. Consult your jeweler whether it is safe to clean them with mild soap or toothpaste.
