Care for your waterproof Rays&Riches jewelry
Best practices to keep your jewelry looking new for longer.
-Always make sure your jewelry is clean and dry before putting it away.
-Store your silver and gold-filled jewelry separate from each other and away from jewelry made from cheaper metals, to avoid the metals reacting with each other.
-Regularly use a soft cloth to wipe away dirt, sweat, chemicals etc.
- Avoid exposing your jewelry to skin care products, soaps, detergents and perfumes.
- Remove your jewelry before doing high impact physical exercise and before entering salt or chlorinated water.
-To deep-clean your jewelry let it soak in a bowl with warm water and a few drops of mild dish-soap. Check wether eventual gemstones are waterproof and make sure to rinse it off afterwards and dry it thoroughly .
Even with proper storage and care, silver jewelry requires regular polishing with a soft cloth at least twice a year to remove tarnish.
Gold fill is highly resistant to tarnish but still benefits from regular cleaning and polishing.
Removing tarnish is quick and easy with the anti-tarnish-polishing cloth that comes with your order.

A note on gemstones.
Most gemstones in our collection are waterproof and safe to clean with diluted, mild dishwashing soap, although plain water is usually sufficient. An exception are porous or soft gemstones like coral, turquoise and amber.
We recommend to regularly wipe your gemstones clean with a soft cloth and only use water&soap when absolutely necessary and never with soft & porous gemstones.
