- For cleaning jewellery, we recommend you to use special solutions, as well as soft cloths;
- Avoid wearing jewellery during showers, sleeping, performing physical activities, so as not to wear out the surface of the jewellery and lose its shine;

- Substances that contain sulphur, chlorine, which are frequently used in a household, for cleaning, and not only, should not come in contact with precious metal jewellery; in addition, chemicals can affect products by erosion;
