Because of all its properties it is associated with longevity.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Be gentle and handle with love! Remove jewelry before showering or swimming. Avoid contact with water, excess humidity, lotion, hairspray, and perfume. Use a jewelry polishing cloth to bring back the metal's original luster. Tarnish occurs naturally and metal reacts differently from person to person. Some body oils make the metal oxidize faster than others. To prolong oxidation of the metal, store jewelry in a cool and dry place.
