Care Tip #1 Keep Your Jewellery Dry
Please avoid contact with water, moisture, perfumes, moisturisers, rough surfaces and harsh cleaners such as bleach and detergents, as this could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating as well as cause discolouration and loss of crystal/stone brilliance.
Keeping your jewellery dry is a great way to prevent it from tarnishing. Do not use jewellery cleaners as these cleaners are for silver, gold and platinum and will remove the finish of your jewellery.
Care Tip #2 Store Your Jewellery Properly
Store your jewellery safely in a pouch or box to avoid scratches or damage. Storing your statement necklaces by laying them flat, you can wrap them in silk or a soft cloth. Storing in separate containers will help keep your jewellery lasting much longer. Airtight containers are the best or ziplock bags (squeeze out the air). The air around us is what makes jewellery tarnish so storing away from air will also help stop your jewellery from early tarnishing.
Care Tip #3 Last On, First Off
Remove all jewellery before showering, sporting activities, swimming, sleeping and anything that could potentially damage it.
Care Tip #4 Clean Your Jewellery
Wipe your jewellery with a soft microfiber cloth to maintain its original, lustrous finish. A cloth will simply help to remove grime build-up and oils.
Care Tip #5 Cleaning Sterling Silver
Sterling Silver typically becomes shinier the more it’s worn, so if you want to keep your sterling silver shining, don’t let it sit around in your jewellery box.
However, if you are saving a certain piece for a certain occasion and need some easy cleaning tips here are a few easy ways to clean your sterling silver jewellery.
Clean your sterling silver jewellery with tin/aluminum foil
If your jewellery is super tarnished, you can be sure that it will respond well to being cleaned by aluminum foil. This is not recommended for any Sterling Silver jewellery with stones, crystals or any other type of embellishment. It is only recommended for 925 Sterling Silver jewellery only.
- Step One: Find a baking tray and line it with a clean piece of tin foil
- Step Two: Spread your jewellery out on the tray
- Step Three: Sprinkle some baking soda onto each piece of your silver jewelry so that they are covered.
- Step Four: Boil a small pot of water
- Step Five: Slowly pour the water over the jewellery
- Step Six: Watch in awe as the tin foil picks up the tarnish off your silver jewellery!
- Step Seven: Flip your jewellery over and repeat steps One to Six.
- Step Eight: Rise your jewellery and dry well
- Step Nine: Store in an anti-tarnish bag!
