We recommend that customers remove jewelry before going to bed or participating in physical activity. Exposure to certain harsh chemicals or environments will result in compromising the integrity of your jewelry. This includes, but is not limited to the following: perspiration, perfumes, cleaning agents, chlorine, salt water, and liquid silver polish.
Cleaning your jewelry
1. Most of our 925 sterling silver jewelry products plated with either white gold or Rhodium to prevent its tarnish. In order to maintain the beautiful shine and unique finish just by polishing them with a soft cloth.
2.If the pieces have become dull, a silver-polishing cloth is a wonderful tool to make your 925 sterling silver jewelry shine again.(Note:Our soft silver polishing cloth which contains an anti-tarnish agent can do the easy job for you.) However, the silver polishing cloth won't remove scratches.
3. If your 925 sterling silver jewelry is particularly dirty or already tarnished, then just dampen a soft cloth in lukewarm water, adding a small pea size toothpaste on it, and rub gently on jewelry. Rinse with clean water and pat dry with a soft cloth. Your 925 sterling silver jewelry will become like brand new pieces. (Note:This is old grandma method, but it works every time. We don't recommend using of silver polishing liquids, silver dips, ultrasonic cleaning and a tumbler.)
Store your silver jewelry in a cool and dry place, in individual tarnish-resistant pouches or boxes that will protect them from scratches and stall tarnish. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of Mylar or polyethylene. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as trash can liners as they contain sulfur compounds or rubber containers which will make sterling silver tarnish faster and possibly turn black. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom
1. Humidity and harmful chemicals. Humid environments and chemicals such as chlorine and sulfur (which is found in rubber, cosmetics, detergents, the air, and more) are the main culprits for tarnishing silver. Prolonged exposure to these damaging environments may also cause pitting, dark marks, and gouges that cut into the surface of your silver and result in an uneven finish
2. Hard or rough surfaces. Nail files, tools, and the like can scratch and misshapen silver.
3. Wear during strenuous activities. Wearing silver jewelry while playing sports or doing manual labor puts it at risk of getting scratched.
By following general care guideline above, it can help you to ensure that your favorite pieces and potential future heirlooms will stay as beautiful as the day you receive them.
