Sterling Silver Jewellery Care
Now that you have a piece of jewellery that you love, here are some tips on how to keep it just as lovely as the day you received it.
As with all precious metals, sterling silver can start to look a little dull and becomes tarnished over time. We suggest that if you want to extend the finish of your sterling silver jewellery, it is advisable not to expose it to perfume, chlorine, or body lotions.
Humidity can also contribute to the silver’s discolouration. Having said that, we realise these things can be hard to avoid but do try your hardest!
To brighten up your jewellery if it’s tarnished (discoloured), we recommend using Goddards or Hagerty Silver Dip. Submerge the jewellery in this solution before making sure it’s thoroughly rinsed in water and dried.
To restore the shine, gently rub the silver surface using a silver polishing cloth. For removing any daily dirt, clean using a soft bristle brush and soapy warm water before thoroughly drying.
When you’re not wearing your jewellery, we recommend keeping your pieces separately in a box so they don’t tangle or scratch against each other.
Placing the jewellery box in a zip-lock bag, is an inexpensive way to keep your jewellery from discolouring as exposure to the air can cause your treasured pieces to tarnish over time.
