- You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.
- Remove your jewellery when washing up or showering, as soap particles may become lodged in stone settings and crevices. Soaps can also leave a film over metal and stones, creating a dull appearance.
- Take off your silver jewelry before you go swimming or sunbathing.
- Make sure your jewellery is not in regular contact with hard surfaces, which will scratch or wear down the plating or enamelling.
- When dressing, jewellery should always be put on last as make up, cosmetics and perfumes can cause damage to delicate items.
- All stone jewellery requires extra care and consideration during wearing to protect the setting as well as to safeguard the diamond or gemstone it holds.
- Your jewellery should be stored in a dry place away from humidity, moisture and extreme temperatures.
Store your jewellery in its own box or pouch to prevent scratching, chipping and entanglement.
If you want to save space by storing it without box then use airtight plastic bags to avoid tarnish.
You can place a piece of chalk, a packet of activated charcoal, or a container of silica gel in the storage area to minimize tarnish.
- Gentle rubbing with a silver cleaning cloth will restore the original brilliance of the surface.
- You can also rub soft cotton cloth to clean the product.
- Do not use liquid cleaners for carved silver jewellery as the liquid dries into the engraving.
- Never use detergent, soap, toothpaste etc to clean your rose gold or gold polished jewellery.
Note If you wear your rose gold or gold plated silver jewellery for significant periods of time, the plating will eventually wear down. To restore its appearance, you can get it re-plated.
