Here are some tips on looking after your jewellery for long life!
The best way to look after your jewellery is careful wear and careful storage. Perfume, make-up and hairspray should be put on before your jewellery. It is also important to take off your jewellery if you will be doing an activity that could be hard on it. Sterling silver jewellery will tarnish when not being worn. It is best to store silver jewellery in an air tight zip lock bag. Do not store your jewellery at the bottom of your purse and expect it to survive.
We do not recommend using a silver dip or polish for cleaning, as these chemicals are often too harsh or abrasive and bad for the environment. The easiest way to clean all metal jewellery is by using an old toothbrush, baking soda and a little water to make a paste. Just brush your jewellery to remove tarnish and to make any piece of jewellery look like new again. This is a safe method even on a piece of jewellery that has pearls, stones or beads.
Keep in mind – jewellery is not indestructible and has the potential to wear down over time. This is especially true for pieces that are being worn every day. It should also be noted that not every piece of jewellery can be repaired. Wear the appropriate jewellery for the appropriate activities to avoid disappointment.
