Tips on Care & Storage of Sterling Silver Jewelry

  • Wear it often. One of the easiest ways to prevent tarnish is to simply wear your jewelry.
  • Put your jewelry on last. This gives your lotions, make up, and perfumes time to absorb first.
  • Never wear your silver in hot tubs, swimming pools, mineral springs, as well as when in direct contact with household cleaning products.
  • The best way to clean residue and oils from the surface of silver is to wipe it gently with a silver polishing cloth.
  • Avoid use of paper and coarse fibre, as these can scratch the surface.
  • Do not store your silver jewelry in bathrooms, as the moist air can promote tarnish.
  • Many commercial silver cleaners can harm your silver. Mild detergent applied with a soft baby’s toothbrush and rinsed with water is much safer. Pat dry thoroughly.
  • Store each piece separately in an airtight plastic bag with a silica gel pack or anti tarnish strip.

As long as you keep up with periodic maintenance and store it properly, your sterling silver jewelry will bring you years of enjoyment.
