Caring for Jewelry

I have been in jewelry busines fo several years and would like to share some tips with you:

1) Store silver in plastic bags to help retard tarnishing

2) Do not wear jewelry in Chlorine pools - it breaks down metals and loosens prongs resulting in stone loss

3) Do not put silver in professional cleaners that have gold in - chemical reaction will ruin your silver

4) Many stones are treated - do not put jewelry with any stones except Red (ruby), White (diamonds) and Blue (sapphire) into professional cleaners

5) Never clean pearls and opal with anything but a damp moist rag! They are very delicate
