1.Avoid putting together with cosmetics
If the ring is coated with cosmetics, the brightness will be weaken; especially diamonds, they are very easy to stick to oily cosmetics, so they must be separated strictly.

For example: all jewelry shall avoid exposing to sulfur. Emerald shall avoid exposing to pesticides or other sprays.
4. Don’t wear gemstone jewelry when exercising or doing heavy work
For example: sweat contains fatty acids and urea, so will have an eroding effect on pearls. As a result, there is a saying of "Pearl found in Lingnan (southern area of China）shall be worn in Lingbei （northern area of China）", which means you can wear in northern areas for the cold and dry weather.
5. Avoid mixing with other jewelry
For example, hard diamonds can easily scratch other gemstones; therefore, they should be stored separately.
Amalgam, a vapor alloy of mercury, will be produced after mixing with gold.
Chemical reactions will take place when medicines contact with jewelry, changing jewelry’s color and quality.
Pearl, turquoise, opal, coral, amber, etc. are absorbent. Use of detergent or water may cause cracking.
9.Avoid high temperature
Some gemstones, like opal, are not resistant to high temperatures, it may result in dehydrate and crack, or discolored. For example, above 55 °, jade will dissolve the wax layer on the surface and lose its protective effect, reducing the gloss of the wax.
