Why Regular Cleaning is Important
Daily wear exposes your jewelry to various elements like oils, lotions, sweat, and dust, which can cause them to lose their luster over time. Cleaning your jewelry at home not only restores their shine but also helps prevent tarnishing and maintain their beauty. Here's how to care for each type:
