Avoid storing your piece of jewellery next to a strong heat source or in direct sunlight. This may cause fading over time. Natural pine resin is strong, durable and waterproof. However, it is recommended not to wear the items in the shower or swimming pool, and refrain from spraying perfume or other alcohol based products near or on the piece, in order to preserve their original condition.
A soft cloth can be used to buff the piece and bring out its original shine. It is advised to do this after each use, to prevent natural body oils or lotions from damaging the surface of the resin, and to keep the piece in best possible condition. The surface is liable to scratch in cases of extreme misuse. Pine resin is an organic substance and should be treated as such.
