All sterling silver will tarnish over time, but it will happen much faster when it comes into contact with agents such as perfume, salty air, sulphur in the air, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine, sea water, perspiration, medication excreted through the skin, and acidic skin ph. Hot and humid conditions also stimulate tarnish.
To clean tarnish, gently scrub your jewellery with a soft toothbrush in diluted soapy water. Dry thoroughly then buff with a jewellery polishing cloth. This helps to remove the dirt and grit that may gather between the links of your bracelet causing wear and tear. A twice yearly professional clean will ensure that your jewellery always looks beautiful and wears well.
We provide our customers with a Jewellery care card on all purchases. The tips are to:
- Remove before entering water
- Apply Perfume & Creams before putting on your Jewellery
- Remove jewellery before sleeping
- When not in use - keep neatly stored
