How to care for your jewelry

All jewelry, sterling silver, gold plated, gold filled, or gold vermeil must be consistently cared for to retain its shine and beauty. Tarnishing or color change in gold or silver jewelry is natural over time. EMRI is not responsible for the care of the jewelry when you have received your jewelry.

We’ve listed a few guidelines to help you prolong the use of your jewelry.

Please avoid wearing jewelry in the following environments:

  • Humidity/high moisture (steam rooms, saunas, etc.)
  • Hot days where jewelry may be exposed to sweat and moisture
  • Saltwater (beaches, etc.)
  • Chlorine (pools, etc.)
  • When wearing cosmetic products (sunscreen, perfumes, strong scented lotion etc.)
  • Sleeping
  • Exercising

You may wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth to retain its shine. Do not use water or harsh chemicals.

Please avoid tugging or pulling at jewelry as this can cause stress to the body and fasteners of the jewelry. 

Please keep jewelry in separate bags or holders. Keeping many pieces of jewelry in one place can scratch and tangle all the jewelry in the bag. This can lead to pieces being scratched or broken and colors being rubbed off if not careful. If the bag is inconvenient, a small box may be used instead.
