The best way to take care of your piece of jewelry is to do it the way you would any of your jewelry. You must remember to take into consideration the softness or hardness of your stone and clean accordingly. Keep your piece separate from your other jewelry so it does not get nicked or scratched. It is also best to keep it in a small plastic bag sealed tightly or in a box with cotton in it. Keeping it this way will help to cut down on tarnish as the air can not get to it as easily
