Remember that pretty trinket box your mom or grandma had on your dresser? It served an important purpose. No jewelry is meant to be worn at all times. Taking off your precious items at night, not wearing them in the shower or while doing daily chores will save them from some wear and tear.
Precious metals and gem stones need regular maintenance and attention. For example, white gold needs to be re-rhodium plated when the plating wears off, and claws on stones need retipping or even replacing over time. Even diamonds are susceptible to breaking and cracking. Wearing chains to bed will stretch them and cause them to become brittle.
Keep your heirlooms safe in a trinket box or case when you take them off, and enjoy your gorgeous new jewels.
