Silver Jewelry Care:

Tarnish is Natural:
Silver jewelry may naturally tarnish over time due to factors like individual pH levels, humidity, and exposure to air. This is a natural process and doesn’t indicate a flaw.

Proper Storage:
Store silver jewelry in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture. Consider using the cotton bags provided with our jewelry.

Cleaning:
- Mild Soap and Water: Use a few drops of mild dishwashing soap mixed with warm water. Gently scrub with a soft toothbrush or cloth. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
- Baking Soda Paste: For tougher tarnish, create a paste with baking soda and water. Apply, scrub gently, then rinse and dry.
- Silver Polishing Cloth: Designed to remove tarnish and restore shine. Rub until luster returns.

18k Gold Jewelry Care:

Gentle Handling:
While 18k gold is resistant to tarnish, handle with care to avoid damage from rough treatment or chemicals.

Cleaning:
Clean with mild soap and warm water. Gently scrub, rinse thoroughly, and pat dry.

Gold and Rhodium-Plated Jewelry Care:

A Delicate Layer:
Plated jewelry features a thin layer of precious metal over a base metal. Minimize wear from activities and chemicals to preserve the layer.

Cleaning:
Wipe gently with a soft, damp cloth. Avoid abrasives and harsh chemicals.

Regular Maintenance:

All jewelry, including plated pieces, benefits from periodic maintenance. Look for signs like fading or loss of shine as indicators for maintenance.

Replating Services:

To restore plated jewelry, inquire about our replating services. We apply a fresh layer of metal to renew appearance and durability.
