Ladies should be aware of the fact that putting jewelry on immediately after applying certain types of makeup or cosmetics can potentially damage jewelry. This is due to the fact that many cosmetics today contain harsh chemicals that may interact with precious metals or gems. Play it safe and always wash hands thoroughly after applying makeup and before putting on jewelry. Equally important is to consider removing jewelry or simply not wearing jewelry when entering a swimming pool or spa. The chlorinated water typically found in pools can react with various types of precious metals and other kinds of jewelry causing potential damage or discoloration.
