Here are some tips to protect your jewelry from sweat —
1-Gemstones —-Sweat or Cholrine don’t react with gemstone, but can get damaged , chipped, cracked with heavy blow at gym.
2-Pearls — Can get scratched very easily and can loose their shine . It’s advisable to keep pearls away while exercising.
3-Gold and Silver — They react with sweat and chlorine- so if you swim everyday , it will surely loose its luster and shine . Also metals can be soft which can easily dent .
4-Opals–very delicate and soft Gem ! Keep them for parties please !
5- Steel — Best option to choose from the rest 🙂
Remove your precious jewelry before exercising or swimming .Your own sweat and body oils can dull the shine of your jewelry. Clean your jewelry regularly with warm water.Do not wear long chains or necklace while jogging. Avoid loose rings while swimming.
