Care & Maintenance:
- You can avoid tarnish on your sterling silver jewelry by wearing your pieces often.
- The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.
- It is a good idea to remove jewelry when doing household chores.
- We also strongly recommend removing jewelry before going to bed.
- Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes are also “enemies” of precious metal and can contribute to tarnishing.
- Store your jewelry in airtight plastic bags.
- For gold fill pieces, we recommend taking off for showers, swimming and any other activities that may cause your jewelry to be subjected to sweat or water.
Cleaning - Sterling Silver Jewelry:
- Polishing your silver works well when the tarnishing is not too severe.
- Silver is soft and can become scratched easily. You can use a special silver cloth to polish your items, but a lint-free flannel, microfiber, or other soft nonabrasive cloth will do as well.
- We have found that the easiest and best cleaning option for sterling silver is a 1/2 and 1/2 blend of mild dish washing liquid and baking soda. Apply the solution to a soft bristled tooth brush, clean and rinse in warm water.
Cleaning - 14k Gold-Filled
- Although our Gold Filled jewelry will not tarnish, it will get dirty and eventually the gold will wear off (how fast this happens depends on wear and tear). The oils from your skin transfer to the metal and need to be washed off periodically.
- The easiest way to care for it is to scrub it with a baby soft toothbrush and a 1/2 and 1/2 solution of baking soda and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse it well and lay on a towel to dry.
Please note that we also use gold vermeil for some of our charms. You may care for those pieces the same as the gold fill for long lasting pieces.
