Caring for Your BLING!
After wearing your jewelry, it is usually enough to gently wipe your pieces with a soft cloth with no abrasives — no silver cleaning cloths, for example — and store them in plastic bags for protection. To remove excessive skin oils or perspiration and for deep cleaning a couple of times a year or so, immerse and swish your jewelry in warm, soapy water and leave it to soak for a few minutes. Rinse, air or blow dry on low, and when completely dry, store in plastic bags. Please avoid harsh detergents, abrasives, ultrasonic cleaners, and chemicals such as perfumes and chlorinated water which can scratch or deteroirate the oxide layer of anodized aluminum.
