Limit exposure to direct heat and sunlight. Keep all jewelry dry and put on after the use of cosmetic and body products. Water, lotion, fragrances, and any other oil or water based products will increase the likeliness of tarnishing.
Avoid wearing your jewelry at the beach, swimming pool, or while exercising or playing sports. Chlorine and related chemicals can severely discolor and damage jewelry as well as loosen stones and settings. Limit contact with rough surfaces and other metals in order to avoid scratching and changes in color.
When cleaning, we recommend you use polishing cloths. Such cloths are non-abrasive and will remove debris with little effort.
When not in use, store jewelry in the protective bag and box received with purchase. Because metals and stones become scratched when coming into contact with one another, we recommend that you store each piece of jewelry separately.
Chains should be stored closed and laid flat to avoid the formation of knots.
Please note that CA&LOU jewelry is made of plated metals and will tarnish over time with much wear.
