Always store your jewelry pieces individually, preferably in your Jewzelle soft-lined box or pouch so that they don’t rub together, scratch, or tangle. Take particular care with gemstones to ensure they do not knock against each other when stored. Also, remember to keep your chains fastened so they don’t become tangled.

Living in a humid environment? Store your jewelry with a small packet of desiccant crystals to help reduce tarnishing.

Keep your gold vermeil and silver jewelry in a dark, cool, and dry place. With time and wear, sterling silver will naturally oxidize and eventually tarnish. Storing silver jewelry in a sealed plastic bag or airtight box when not worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation. The oxidation process is also slowed down by wearing your jewelry often. However, if your jewelry is stored for long periods, occasional cleaning is recommended to maintain shine and keep oxidation at bay.

All our Jewzelle sterling silver jewelry is rhodium-plated, protecting the silver from exposure and helping reduce long-term tarnishing.

Your jewelry is particularly susceptible to damage from the effects of chemicals present in perfume, hairspray, makeup, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion, and deodorant.

Do not keep jewelry in direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure can cause many gemstones to fade and lose their color. Amethyst, rose quartz, chalcedony, and smoky quartz are just some of the gemstones that can become paler from exposure to sunlight.
