It is perfectly fine to bathe, shower, swim, exercise and have sex in. Once tied on securely they become an intimate extension of you, and you do everything in them. Over time any gold or metal components on the waist beads will become less shiny. Be careful your first few weeks of wear so that your waist beads do not snag onto your button to your pants or no one pulls at your waist beads. Just be mindful not to yank on them while pulling your pants down to use the bathroom.
Your waist beads will ‘relax’ after 2 or more weeks. You will see your beads space apart. That is normal.
To ensure longevity, always gently roll your bracelets on and off your wrists. Bracelets that include gold or silver accents or charms are brass, so they will tarnish over time.
To ensure the beauty of your jewelry, we recommend the following:
Avoid getting the bracelets wet and remove before showering. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you do not forget to remove when you exercise or swim.
To maintain your jewelry's vibrancy avoid spraying with an agent, such as perfume. Wear jewelry only after you have sprayed on your favorite perfume and it has set, so that the chemicals does not interact with your jewelry's metal. Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear you gold/silver plated item(s). Additionally substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover etc. may react with with plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish over time
Avoid humidity, heat and overexposure to sun.
Gently rubbing the surface of your TuChe' LaRue jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth will help restore its shine. If your jewelry needs more cleaning soak it for a couple minutes and you may can it with a soft cloth. Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps.
