We recommend after every wear that you wipe down your piece with a cotton cloth. This will remove the impurities that came from your skin, lotions, perfumes, etc. In doing this, you will extend the look and life of your item. Avoid chemicals. Wearing jewelry in the shower or the swimming pool can wear away the lacquer finish, causing it to tarnish. If this happens we are not able to repair the item. Some designer jewelry brands we carry provide a 1-year warranty with proof of purchase. Fashion jewelry and gift items are not covered by any warranty. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
