Your jewellery doesn’t mix well with:
Hairsprays, suntan lotions, soaps, hand creams, washing-up liquid and make-up etc. Chemicals and substances like these can discolour and damage your items. Apply perfume, suntan lotion or other lotions before you put on your jewellery and make sure it’s completely dry.
Take your precious jewellery off when:
Gardening, swimming, showering, bathing and exercising, especially any exercise that includes handling equipment such as lifting weights or gripping poles or aerial hoops (I personally love aerial hoops, so I have first-hand experience with this!). A humid climate, as well as body products and secreted acids (for example your sweat), can discolour your jewellery.
It’s best to avoid:
Extreme temperatures and humid environments where possible. Don’t wear gold or silver rings next to platinum or exposed diamond rings – platinum and diamonds are much harder wearing and can damage your other jewellery pieces.
