Many factors can influence the condition of jewellery. Therefore you should make sure that your jewellery is properly cleaned, repaired and stored. Always protect your jewellery from water, knocks, scratches, chemicals, sunlight and heat/cold to minimise these effects. Ideally, store your jewellery in its Kaaren Buchanan jewellery box and try to keep pieces apart, so that they don't rub together or tangle up. Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. This will keep them looking their best.
