KEEPING YOUR ACCESSORIES SAFELY STORED
The most effective way to protect and preserve your jewellery is to make sure that you are storing it in the best way possible. All precious metals over time can be effected by natural elements such as moisture, oils and air. This is from the metal reacting with such elements as sulphur or water particles in the air and tarnishing is the product of this reaction. Whilst some metals are more resistant to tarnishing, eventually all metals can be effected but by reducing the contact your accessories have with the elements you can greatly delay the effects of tarnishing and the need to clean the pieces.
So we recommend that you store every Ivory & co accessory in the packaging provided (within the original box.) For added protection from air particularly if you live in a humid climate you can keep the piece between wearing in the original plastic packaging inside the box as this will delay reactions with the air.
Try to avoid at all costs storing jewellery pieces mixed together in a box as that can cause scratching of the plating, dulling of a high shine finish and can cause chains to tangle together. When traveling avoid the temptation to mix items together in a travel bag or case, instead pack the individual pieces each in their plastic bags or in jewellery pouches to avoid damage and items knocking together in transit.
