Sterling Silver Care
Precious jewelry – the place it holds in our hearts far exceeds its material value! It’s just not an accessory, it is also an emotional investment and an expression of one’s personality and style!
We offer these tips to help you keep your jewelry to look as good as brand new irrespective of the purchase date.
Keeping your silver jewelry looking good as new is a simple process if you know the essentials:
1) Keep it dry: Sterling silver can tarnish/turn black if being exposed to moisture and high humidity or being stored without drying properly. Carefully dry jewelry after wearing, by wiping with a soft cloth to remove any sweat/moisture and debris.
2) Separate, Seal, Store: Store each individual item of your precious silver jewelry in a separate, airtight ziploc bag. Silver tarnishes when exposed to moisture and sulfur containing gases in the air. Wiping each piece of jewelry dry and storing it in a sealed bag prevents tarnishing. Separating individual pieces ensures that they don’t get tangled, and more importantly, prevents precious stones or delicate carvings from rubbing against other pieces and getting damaged/losing their finish.
3) Soft is best: Polishing is an integral part of keeping your 92.5 sterling silver jewelry sparkling like new. Clean with a soft cotton cloth occasionally. We recommend investing in a specialized jewelry polishing cloth, which ensures the best cleaning without scratching the silver or gemstones.
4) Chemicals are no friend: As far as possible, keep your silver jewelry away from lotions, makeup, and cleaning agents. The chemicals in these can be abrasive to your jewelry. Remove jewelry while bathing, swimming, or while doing household chores. Fragrance can be worn 15 minutes before wearing the jewelry. Wear it after your makeup is done.
Follow these four simple steps, and your lovely silver jewelry will stay gorgeous for many years to come!
