Jewellery care
Sterling silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt and air. Regularly worn jewellery needs less care. Silver should be washed
by hand in warm water with a mild detergent. Because many food acids and gases present in the air can have a corrosive effect, we suggest
that you wash your silver immediately after use. To avoid spotting, it is important to dry your silver very well immediately after washing.
For polishing use a quality brand of silver polish and use a soft cloth to apply it. Rub each piece gently
but firmly lengthwise, using straight, even strokes. You may use a small brush (a toothbrush with natural bristles) for trims
or borders. Wash with soapy water, being sure to remove all the polish. Rinse very well in warm water and dry thoroughly.
Once cleaned, polished and perfectly dry, silver must be kept dry and properly stored.
Rhodium plated silver or white gold should be cleaned only by using absorbent cotton soaked in alcohol.
For places difficult to reach, use a cotton swab soaked in alcohol.
Most gold jewellery can be maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner. Avoid exposing gold jewellery to household bleach,
which will quickly cause gold to discolour and possibly disintegrate. Jewellery storage is important as well.
When not wearing it, place your jewellery back in its original packaging.
