Rule 1: Avoid liquid

Liquid is an enemy of leather - making it tarnish and badly damaged. Wearing your leather pieces when it’s raining outside is not a wise choice at all. Even washing your hands while wearing leather accessories is bad enough. 

Of course, we can’t guarantee 100% that our leather pieces don’t get wet. We get that!

Here is a life-saving tip for you in this case: apply a thin layer of moisture to the surface of the leather. Look for Leather Cream or Leather Dressing on the Internet for the most suitable choice in your area. Remember to apply the moisture continuously but not daily. Once every 2 months is advisable.

Rule 2: Keep out of the sun

What is worse than a damp leather? A dried one.

The heat from the direct sunlight will cause leather to become brittle. A brittle leather will eventually crack and deteriorate.

Keep your jewelry dry as well as stay away from the sun
