Tips for cleaning Jewellery:
1.Jewellery polishing cloth
Polish silver or gold with a jewellery polishing cloth for best results. Use of tissue or paper towels can cause scratches on the jewellery, hence should be avoided.
2.Professional cleaning solution
Use only professional or branded cleaning solutions and tarnish removers.
3.Use warm water to clean jewellery
Warm water with alcohol-free mild soap can also be used to clean you jewellery. However we recommend this as a last resort.
Tips for storing your jewellery:
Storing jewellery in air tight containers prevents it from being damaged due to oxidation.
Reduce chance of tarnishing
Pure sterling silver jewellery has a tendency to tarnish especially when it’s not worn. To maintain the luster of your jewellery, place it in re-sealable poly-bags before putting them into a container to prevent it from oxidation / tarnishing. Tarnishing does not mean that your sterling silver is not pure but it’s the opposite. If however, tarnishing does occur then you can always refer to our Jewellery cleaning tips and / or get it re-polished.
The above are basic guidelines for your information only
