To add to this, the build-up of lotion products will require more and more frequent cleaning of jewelry. The best way is to put on lotion on your hands and body once you have taken off your jewelry at night.

Some of the most vulnerable materials include wood, precious metals, pearls, gemstones, and plastic. The best way to avoid such damage is by storing your pieces in such a way that they don’t touch each other. You can use items such as separated cloth pouches, jewelry armoires, cases, jewelry bags, or even jewelry trees.
