It is probably safe to assume that the jewelry you find that uses Swarovski Crystals in it is considered to be fashion jewelry because the metal is usually plated in gold, silver or platinum. Storing your Swarovski jewelry pieces is easy with a nice jewelry box. Lay your pieces in a single layer so as not to scratch other items. In addition, do not store them in extreme heat or extreme cold temperatures as these extremes can change the makeup of the crystals.
To clean your crystals, never use ultra-sonic jewelry cleaning machines, harsh or abrasive jewelry cleaners, hot or boiling water. What is recommended is that you use a soft, clean, lint-free cotton cloth or a special jeweler's cloth that is made for fashion jewelry. When polishing up your Swarovski jewelry you don't want to buff or rub hard as that can damage the plating so do it gently and with care.
Another item to note is that you should never get your Swarovski jewelry wet so don't wear it while swimming, bathing, washing your hands or showering. Protect your crystals from further damage by wearing your jewelry after you are finished dressing and doing your hair. You don't want it to come into contact with hair products, cosmetics or perfume as these chemical types of products can damage your jewelry.
By using these tips you can expect to enjoy your Swarovski crystal jewelry for many years and look fabulous while doing so.
