Everyone loves a cool dip in the swimming pool on a hot summer day. But pools and Jacuzzis are full of chlorine, which can discolor your jewelry if exposed too long. So play it safe: When you’re stripping down into your bathing suit, take your jewelry off, too.

Soaps and shampoos may help you smell fresh and clean, but they could do a number on your personalized jewelry if they also have chemicals in this.

Properly storing your jewelry will do wonders for keeping it looking new. Keep your jewelry in a box where it won’t get tangled up with other items or dinged up from too much movement.

Anti-tarnish strips are also a great investment to keep out oxidants than can tarnish and dull your pieces.
