Caring for Fashion Jewelry

With proper care, fashion jewelry will last a long time. Here are tips to keep it looking as good as the day it was purchased.

1) Moisture can tarnish the surface of costume jewelry, so never bathe or shower with jewelry on.

2) When not wearing jewelry, store it separately in tiny Ziploc bags to limit exposure to air and oxidation, which can break down metal over time. This also keeps it free of moisture, tangles, and scratches.

3) Lotion, make-up, perfume and hair spray can damage jewelry, so make putting on jewelry the last thing you do before heading out the door.

4) If you notice a bit of tarnish, use a cleaner that states it is compatible with costume jewelry. We recommend Sassy’s Jewelry Cleaner and Buff Cloth to make it look like new.
