Care Guidelines

    Jewelry pieces are both financial and emotional
    investments. Caring for your simulated diamond,
    gemstone and pearl jewelry will not only keep them
    looking great, but will ensure that they will last for times
    to come.

    Basic Jewelry Care

    All jewelry needs proper care. While certain pieces
    may need select care, most jewelry should be cared
    for using the following basics:


    Just like the sun damages skin, heat and light can
    damage certain pieces. Too much sunlight can
    darken the appearance if exposed to too much light.
    To remove any doubt, store jewelry in a dark pouch or
    jewelry case.


    Exposure to common everyday household chemicals,
    like ammonia or bleach, can damage both metals
    and gemstones. Even chemicals that are worn on the
    body - like hairspray, perfumes and lotions - can
    affect metals and dull stones. To keep your jewelry
    looking new, it's best to put on any perfumes, lotions or
    hairspray BEFORE putting on jewelry. 


    Proper Storage
    Most jewelry pieces come in a HFM box or
    pouch that is perfect for storing your new HFM pieces.
    However, most people use a jewelry box.
    Jewelry boxes that have individual felt-lined and
    padded slots for rings, necklaces and earrings will
    keep them organized, clean and safe. Some boxes
    are lined with anti-tarnish cloth, perfect for storing
    sterling silver pieces.
