TheArmak jewelry is extremely well crafted and if cared for properly can be enjoyed for generations.  Air pollutants, dust, perspiration, perfumes, creams and other natural elements can dull the appearance of gemstones or precious metals.  Because of this, it is always good practice to wipe down your jewelry with a cotton cloth after wear. Additionally, jewelry should be professionally cleaned and inspected once a year.  Just like a fine automobile, periodic inspection and maintenance of jewelry helps prevent costly repairs or replacements.  Personally inspect your jewelry as you wear it by looking for loose or chipped stones, worn links, bent prongs, or malfunctioning clasps.
