How do I care for my jewelry?
Use a polishing cloth designed for sterling silver jewelry to clean the metal surface. i include a small polishing cloth with each order and they are available for purchase here if you need extras.
for easier polishing, you can wash jewelry in soapy warm water (hand soap, nothing harsh) to clean off any oils and sun screens etc. make sure to dry it completely before polishing.
please avoid polishing over oxidized, darker sterling silver as this may rub off the patina. after polishing, rinse with warm soapy water and towel dry. make sure jewelry is clean and completely dry before you store it away. wrapping your jewelry in a soft cloth will keep it clean and prevent it from tarnishing.
if you chose to use a liquid sterling silver jewelry cleaner, please follow the product's instruction. avoid using liquid cleaner on any rubber, sea glass and oxidized jewelry as this may harm the rubber/sea glass/patina.
any jewelry with rubber should be stored in a box and not in an airtight bag. rubber can be washed in soapy warm water and towel dried.
please take your jewelry off to sleep, shower, swim, etc. and remember to apply your hairspray, perfume, lotions, and cosmetics before putting your jewelry on.
avoid any harsh or abrasive cleaners.
