Caring for your jewellery
Sterling silver naturally tarnishes over time as the moisture in the air reacts with the surface of the metal. However, specialist jewellery polishing cloths and liquid cleaning solutions work wonders to remove the discolouration caused by tarnish and restore the shine of your silver pieces.
Wearing your jewellery regularly will naturally buff the metal and help keep your jewellery looking in good condition.
Store your jewellery in a jewellery box or airtight bag or container to prevent tarnish.
Warm soapy water
Wash your jewellery in warm soapy water - save time and wear it in the shower! This will not damage your sterling silver and 9ct gold jewellery.
Chlorine reacts with sterling silver and will cause your jewellery to tarnish and blacken very quickly. If this happens you can use a jewellery polishing cloth or cleaning solution to restore the shine and colour.
Household cleaning products such as bleach can cause discolouration to the metal. This discoloration can be removed using a jewellery polishing cloth or cleaning solution.
Perfumes and cosmetics
The chemicals in some cosmetics and perfumes can react with the metals causing discolouration. Remove jewellery and allow cosmetic products and perfumes to dry before putting jewellery on. If discoloration occurs this can be removed using jewellery polishing cloth or cleaning solution.
