We want your Nicole Romano collection to have an everlasting life. Since extended exposure to air can oxidize any jewelry, we highly recommend storing your beautiful pieces in your complimentary Nicole Romano pouches. This pouch is also the safest way to transport your jewels. Be sure to avoid contact with harsh substances like perfumes, scented lotions, soap and hairspray as well as other natural elements such as water, salt, body oil and perspiration. To clean, gently wipe with a polishing cloth. Please keep in mind that each piece of our jewelry is made by hand, and as such each piece will have unique artisanal qualities.
