How to care for your Sterling Silver Jewellery

How to care for your Sterling Silver Jewellery

It’s a question I’m often asked and as Silversmiths we take so much care of this valuable beauty!

Depending on the crystals or stone we set will determine a lot! However, most of the stones we choose are compatible with water. This means yes you can shower or bath in your ring or cuff. Just ensure no strong chemicals are used. No ocean, pools or hot tubs ever!!

Always dry your jewellery after washing it .

If an item becomes duller over time, it could be your body acids causing tarnish, this is a natural process and cannot be prevented. In this case you may like to use some dishwashing liquid in a bowl (warm water) and then scrub with a toothbrush after giving them a soak for around 5 to 10 minutes.

For crystals that don’t like water a soft polishing cloth for silver is ideal and highly recommended to bring back shine. 

Patina and hand stamped jewellery should not be polished as the oxidisation will fade and this is not the desired effect! 

If in doubt please always email or dm us and we are happy to guide you on your purchase after care.
