 GETTING RID OF SCRATCHES 

No matter how careful you are with your jewelry, scratches are inevitable. Here are a few tips on getting rid of them and preventing them:

1) Soak in warm water and a few drops of liquid detergent

2) Wait 5 minutes then dry gently with cloth

3) Next, use a polishing cloth (can buy at a jewelry store) and buff the scratches out. CAREFUL NOT TO rub with a polishing cloth because it could cause damage

4) Put on jewelry AFTER you do your hair, makeup, or any chores to prevent scratches

DO

  • Store jewelry somewhere cool/dry
  • Store in a jewelry box/pouch/original packaging 

DON'T

  • Spray perfume, lotion, etc. with the jewelry on
  • Swim with your jewelry on. Chlorine and salt water can wear them out. If you do, though, rinse them off and dry as soon as you can!
