Caring for your jewelry

Sterling Silver: Sterling Silver jewelry with gold plating is a popular choice known for its shine and versatile style. Over time, it can tarnish due to exposure to air, moisture, and environmental factors. Here are some tips to care for your silver jewelry and prevent tarnishing:

1.) Proper storage: Keep your silver jewelry in a dry, airtight container or a jewelry box/the jewelry bag provided. Avoid storing it in humid places like bathrooms, as moisture can cause tarnishing, especially in humid weather environments.

2.) Regular cleaning: Clean your silver jewelry with a soft, non-abrasive cloth to remove dirt and oils if worn regularly. You can use a special cleaning cloth made for silver jewelry or a soft microfiber cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that may scratch the surface.

3. Wear it often: Surprisingly, wearing your silver jewelry frequently can help prevent tarnishing. The natural oils in your skin can protect the silver from oxidation. Although some discoloration on your skin may occur, this is normal due to individual chemical makeup.

4. Avoid chemicals: Keep your silver jewelry away from chlorine, bleach, ammonia, perfumes, and lotions, as they can cause discoloration and tarnishing. Remove your jewelry before swimming, showering, or using chemicals at home or in the office. Removing before swimming is particularly important to protect the engraving from tarnish.

5. Consider anti-tarnish products: Explore anti-tarnish products like strips or jewelry boxes lined with anti-tarnish material. Some tarnish products can damage the gold plating of the jewelry so we recommend discretion when trying new products.

By following these simple guidelines, you can maintain the shine and beauty of your gold-plated jewelry for years to come.
