Though every item is made to last, special care is needed for each creation. Remove all jewelry before showering, washing hands, or swimming. Please, remove before applying lotion, hair spray or gels to ensure your item will keep from tarnishing or any discoloration of the stone.
Natural oils from your skin can make your jewelry appear "dull" / tarnished. Use a polishing cloth/pad to help buff and bring your item back to a shine. To prevent tarnish keep your jewelry in a jewelry box/drawer in plastic baggies. With time your patina will naturally darken.
Keep your items out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures
Do not play sports or do extreme activities while wearing jewelry. Stones like opals and turquoise are naturally soft stones and can crack if hit.
