Most jewelry can be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild detergent with water if required, rinse with clear water and dry with a soft cloth. Test an inconspicuous area for color fastness before cleaning the whole piece.

If you use a jewelry cleaning liquid, read the instructions carefully before using. Some types of beads and gems, including pearls, turquoise, opal, and other soft stones, should never be put into any cleaning solution.

Remove jewelry before going to bed. Sleeping in your jewelry can add extra stress to chains, joints, etc., and shorten the life of your things.
