For gold plated jewelry, gently clean it with a cotton ball or very soft cloth to remove dust and dirt. If your jewelry requires more extensive cleaning you can use warm water and mild soap. Dry thoroughly with a cloth. Always remove gold plated jewelry before bathing and exercising, and avoid applying creams/perfumes while wearing in order to maximize its lifespan. Semi-precious stones should be wiped with a soft cloth and mild soap & water if absolutely necessary. Jewelry is best stored in a dry area away from moisture (i.e. don't keep it in the bathroom!). Place your jewelry in the provided jewelry pouch and box when not being worn.
