We suggest the following tips for keeping your Akola jewelry looking beautiful:
Store your Akola jewelry in soft fabrics or sealed baggies to prevent scratching, tangling, and slow down the effect of oxidation due to environmental exposure.
Take off your Akola jewelry when you wash or do any physical activities.
Keep your jewelry away from cosmetics, perfume, lotion and cleaning products that are responsible for the oxidation of plating and damage metals.
