When not wearing your jewellery, we recommend storing it in its box as this includes an anti-tarnish tab in order to maintain its finish and prevent tarnish. Wearing silver regularly will keep tarnish from building up. If you do begin to see it darken, we recommend using a silver cleaning cloth, available from all good jewellery retailers, to polish your piece and restore its brightness.
Avoid the silver from coming into contact with household cleaning products, perfume and chlorinated or salt water as these can all tarnish or even damage your jewellery. Even resting sterling silver on wooden surfaces, especially oak can spoil the surface of it due to acids usually contained in wood.
Gold does not tarnish as much as silver but when it does use a gold cleaning cloth. As with most metals we recommend soaking the metal in soapy water (use washing up liquid) for several minutes and then rub the jewellery between your hands . Rinse with warm water and leave to air dry.
Remember you have a one of a kind, handmade item of jewellery and treated with care it will last a lifetime.
