Pendants wrapped or set in Sterling Silver and/or Gold filled material will not fade and wear away as with plated metals however water, moisture, body chemistry, oils, lotions, etc. will tarnish your metals. Keep them bright and looking their best by polishing with a dry “polishing” cloth as necessary, keep them clean & dry and store them in their pouch or your jewelry box when you’re not wearing them. And as much as you love your crystals – avoid sleeping in them.
Bezel set pendants and rings have been bonded to the silver that surround them. If your ring becomes wet, dry it immediately as moisture will set in between your crystal and wear down this bond.
Remove your ring when washing your hands and ensure you’re not applying lotions and oils of any kind while it’s on. As much as you don’t want to take your gems off (I do relate!), please do not swim, bath or shower in your jewelry. The TLC will go a very long way!
