Always store your Spells of Love jewellery in your box, or a soft pouch to prevent scratches and keep chains fastened to avoid the dreaded tangle! Store each piece in its own individual place as mixing different metals can cause tarnishing and alter gold plating. Temperature extremities can cause damage to your jewellery so avoid extreme humidity or heat to prevent any tarnishing. In an ideal world, your jewellery should be kept in a dark, cool and dry place (when you’re not wearing it, of course). If your jewellery is being stored away for a long time, occasional cleaning is recommended to maintain shine and prevent oxidation. If you’re going for a swim, take off your jewellery – it won’t appreciate the dip. Avoid contact with water, lotions, perfumes, cosmetics, detergents and chemicals where possible – we also recommend taking off your jewellery before bed to avoid rubbing and tangling.
