• Avoid contact with all liquids and chemicals, such as perfume, sea water, ammonia, chlorinated pool water, hair spray and sweat. Contact with these substances will increase the rate at which tarnishing occurs.
  • Always protect your jewellery from sharp blows, scratching, chemicals, direct sunlight and heat/cold, especially humidity. 
  • When you put away your jewellery, make sure it’s completely dry and kept in the pouch provided when you bought the jewellery. This will protect it from scratches as well as help slow the tarnishing process. Try to keep pieces apart so they don't rub together.
  • Prevent your jewelry from coming into contact with hair spray, deodorants and perfumes. Remember to put your jewellery on after you’ve used any hair spray, body spray or perfume, as these products can tarnish it. Make sure your jewellery is the last thing you put on before you go out.
