3 Things You Didn’t Know Tarnishing Your 3Shades Chic Jewelry

African Vinyl Disk Beads

Most of the jewelry we sell requires very little care — just wear and enjoy. We do recommend taking off your jewelry when swimming, gardening, doing contact sports, seriously messy cooking, and moving heavy objects. With that in mind, here are some helpful tips to keep your jewelry looking its very best!


Always spritz before you accessorize. The oils found in perfumes tend to stick to the faceted surfaces of diamonds, dulling their shine. As some of the most beautiful, natural gems in the world, opals and pearls are best not exposed to fragrances, which can cause them to darken or yellow. The golden rule when it comes to jewelry is “last on, first off;” your jewels should be the last thing you put on before leaving the house, and the first thing you take off before beginning your nighttime beauty routine.


Excessive heat and direct sunlight, overtime, can cause some metals and semi-precious gemstones to change colors. Humidity can also have adverse effects on jewelry. It can cause clasp weakening and can harm certain gemstones

Tap & Salt Water

Given that even tap water contains trace amounts of chlorine, this rule also applies when you shower and wash your hands. As to saltwater, your only option is to leave your jewelry at home, stored safely in a soft pouch or jewelry box. The best way to protect your jewelry is to keep them safely stored.

We believe jewelry is meant to be worn every day. That said - it depends on your lifestyle, your aesthetic preferences, how often you lose things. Each piece of our jewelry is handcrafted and therefore delicate.

Please take care of your jewelry so you can enjoy them for a lifetime.
