We hope you truly love your jewels, and we want nothing more than for them to become staples in your wardrobe! However, fashion jewelry isn't meant to be worn 24/7.

To keep your pieces sparkly and minimize signs of wear, avoid contact with liquids, perfumes, lotions and perspiration as they'll dull your
pieces and cause them to wear quickly. Treat your jewels with love and care, and they'll keep sparkling for you!
