While keeping your locket nice and clean is not a difficult task, it may require a little consistency on your part.

Think about it, what good is it, or how shinny would your locket appear if you choose to clean it once every 10 years? Not very great at all, to keep that shinny and attractive appearance you will need to consistent in what you do. Here are a few tips that should help you to preserve the pristine condition of your locket:

Keep Locket Pendant Away from Water – If you are interested in maintaining you lovely heart locket, you should keep it clear of water. So, if you are going to have a shower or a bath, it is highly recommended that you remove your locket. Even if you are going to wash your car, don’t forget to remove your locket.
