Quality jewels can have an unlimited lifespan given just a bit of appropriate maintenance.
What are the foes of jewelry made of precious metals? Dust, pollution and natural skin oils all contribute to altering its shine. This applies to silver, gold and precious stones as well. The claws and clasps can also wear over the years which can cause a stone or part of a jewel to detach.
It is not recommended to wear jewelry when you are sleeping, swimming, or participating in sporting activities. Also avoid contact with perfumes and make-up.
MYEL only uses Sterling Silver and 14K-18 solid gold, the most durable and lustrous of all metals found. With proper care, your MYEL jewellery will retain its beauty and character for many years to come.
Silver tarnishes quite quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen or sulfur. The best measure to prevent this, is wearing your silver jewelry often. The oils in your skin help prevent tarnish.
Solid Gold (14-18K)
Sometimes 14k gold can tarnish a bit, depending on your skin chemistry, but it is easy to fix.
Put jewelry on after applying makeup and cream
Cosmetics, hairspray, perfumes and lotion can contain chemicals that can often damage jewelry.
Don't wear jewelry in swimming pools and spas
Chlorinated water can react with the metals found in jewelry causing color changes and even structural damages.
