Caring For And Wearing Your Jewelry
Here are some cleaning instructions for Sterling Silver jewelry:
- Combine a small amount of mild soap with lukewarm water.
- Use a small, soft toothbrush to gently scrub.
- Rinse with clean water.
- If dirt is hard to remove, soak jewelry in clean water for a few minutes; repeat steps 1-3.
- Pat dry with another dry soft cloth.
- Use a silver polish cloth to give your jewelry a final shine – also good for in-between cleanings.
- Be sure to let completely dry before storing in jewelry bags or boxes.
For other metals: Some metals tend to turn if it comes in contact with water and it can't be cleaned :-(
But here are some tips we hope it helps:
- To help protect the durability and quality of your jewelry, remove your jewelry when you shower, bathe or engage in heavy exercise, particularly when swimming in the sea or a chlorinated swimming pool.
- Avoid spraying aftershave, applying creams or any other liquids directly onto your jewelry.
- Keep your jewelry away from extreme temperatures, humidity or sunlight.
- Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals or environments that could compromise the integrity of your jewelry. Examples include, but are not limited to: Perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, saltwater and silver polish.
- Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom where it could be exposed to wet conditions as humidity and moisture can make tarnish appear faster.
- Ideally store your pieces of jewelry separately, so that they don’t rub together or become tangled.
- To keep your jewelry looking radiant & to remove the build up of dirt & tarnish we recommend using a polishing cloth. Rub the piece in one direction rather than circular motions.
- Do not use tissue paper or paper towels to clean metals as they can cause scratching.
