Tips & Tricks
1. Clean your Jewelry Often!!
Demi Fine Jewelry can last a long time if cared for properly. The key to making sure you get years of life out of your gold filled / Demi fine jewelry is to clean it often. Preferably before you notice any discoloration. Just like rust, tarnish can corrode the metal over time. If you wait too long, the buildup can become too severe to clean.
2. Use a Jewelry Cleaning Cloth to wipe down your jewelry every time you take it off. This helps maintain the shine and prevent build up of grime and dirt.
3. Store safely in a clean dry pouch or box. Avoid storing in high moisture areas like the bathroom.
