How to take care of your jewelry

Preventative care: You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.


Sterling silver, like other precious metal alloys, can oxidise with time.  Treat your silver well, care for it properly and it will reward you with a long life and a lustrous look.

  • Clean your silver jewellery with a mild (Dawn dish soap) soap and water solution, allowing the water to bead up, and then patting dry with a soft cloth.  
  • Store your silver in a cool, dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt or cloth.
  • Store pieces individually so that they don’t knock together and scratch.
  • Do not rub silver with anything other than a polishing cloth. Tissue paper or paper towels can cause scratches because of the fibres in these products.
  • Make sure your silver is not exposed to air and light during storage – this can cause silver to tarnish.
  • Don’t wear sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals.


Enjoy!
