Rings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets are all classified as Jewelry. Have you thought of the dirt your jewelry collects from your skin as a result of the oils you use and the body or perfume sprays?
Therefore it’s always important to wear your jewelry after you have applied cream and perfume. For instance never apply any body creams when you have your jewelry on. For example it’s a bad habit to apply cream on your body with your rings on.
Always get time to wipe your jewelry with a soft piece of cloth each time you take them off. If possible dampened the soft piece of cloth with water and clean the jewelry. Wait for them to dry before you keep them away.
There is a specific kind of jewelry that can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution for instance pearls. Other gemstones require using a soft brush while cleaning them but never use strong detergents to clean jewelry.
Avoid using coarse cleaners or scratchy cloth on your jewelry because they can scratch away the coating thus damaging the gemstone.
