Here are some basic guidelines to consider when wearing jewelry:
REMOVE JEWELRY - remove your jewelry to prevent physical damage or exposure to chemicals or cleaning fluids. Some tasks that should be avoided when wearing jewelry include kitchen work, gardening, cleaning the house and other common tasks.
PUT YOUR JEWELRY ON AFTER YOUR MAKEUP – Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry. Putting jewelry on after applying these materials will limit exposure to jewelry and any potential damage.
DO NOT WEAR YOUR JEWELRY IN POOLS OR SPAS – Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and even structural damage. As a result it's a good idea to remove jewelry before entering the pool or spa.
PLEASE HAVE COMON SENCE AND DO NOT WEAR JEWELRY WHILE PLAYING SPORTS - Hard blows during sports can damage jewelry not to mention the people involved. All jewelry should be removed before play begins.
