All fine jewelry is delicate by nature and should be handled carefully. A few simple tips:

    •    Remove your jewelry before showering, exercising, washing dishes, adding lotion or perfume.

    •    At night, lay your jewelry flat to avoid scratching or tangling 

    •    After removing a necklace , fasten the clasp 

    •    To clean diamond jewelry, use a soft toothbrush with dish soap and gently wipe
