Accessories can become discolored on the surface in response to oils, sweat, dirt and cosmetic ingredients. Please be careful and avoid getting the item wet if possible. To keep it clean, gently wipe it with a soft cloth, such as eyeglass cloth, after wearing. We also recommend that you keep it in a jewelry box or zipped bag to protect it. If the luster fades, apply polishing oils (such as linseed oil) to refresh and restore the lost luster.
