To ensure the longevity of your new jewelry, please remove them before sleeping, exercising and showering. Please avoid contact with ANY liquids such as perfume, hairspray, makeup, lotions oils, sunscreen, chlorine, salt water, extreme sweat etc. Your jewelry should always be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off. We recommend gently wiping down jewelry with a soft cloth after every wear to protect the metal from the skin's natural oils. Heavy wear and rough conditions will, of course, impact how your jewelry looks. Lastly, we recommend storing jewelry in a cool, dry environment in the ALEXA KELLEY box.
