It should be OK to wear all the time, BUT gems and jewels look their best when they are clean. Free from soaps, lotions, dead skin cells. I would recommend taking it off every week and giving the chain and pendant a little scrub with a soft toothbrush and some diluted dish washing liquid or mild soap. Rince thoroughly and dry with a soft towel.
You'll notice the difference before and after. :D
