Care: Enamel jewelry can be a keepsake that will last a lifetime if taken care of properly. Care should be taken not to drop the pendent. Enamel is glass on metal and if you drop it, the enamel could crack. But don't be fooled, enamel is pretty tough! It takes quite a drop to cause any damage. It can be cleaned as need with a soft cloth and water.
