How to Prevent Tarnish on Sterling Silver:
Store clean, dry sterling silver in a dry airtight container, like a ziplock bag.
An anti-tarnish strip placed with the silver jewelry in a ziplock bag will also help fight against tarnish.
Don’t leave silver jewelry in the bathroom. Humidity can speed up the oxidation process that produces tarnish.
Wearing jewelry during physical activities can expose the metal to unwanted moisture and can accidentally scratch or misshape the jewelry in the process. Be mindful & take it off before doing sports, hot yoga, weight lighting, gardening, or any other strenuous movements.
Minimize sterling silver’s contact to chemicals (hairspray, perfume, body lotion, bleach, etc.) and do not wear it while washing dishes, taking a shower, or getting into a swimming pool or hot tub.
A general rule of thumb for jewelry lovers: it should be the last thing put on before leaving the house & the first thing removed when returning home. This will help minimize your jewelry’s contact with perfumes, lotions, and other chemicals.
Natural Stone Care:
Do your best at getting to know your pieces & their needs. Ask questions if you’re unsure!
Apply lotion, cosmetics, hairspray & perfume before dressing in jewelry.
Be careful exposing your gemstones to excessive light & heat because it can affect the durability & color of the stone. Sudden temperature changes may also fracture some gems, so it’s important to be aware of your surroundings when wearing such pieces.
Most colored gems can be cleaned with warm water, mild dish soap (no detergents) & a soft brush. Using a new, clean makeup brush & warm, soapy water will also softly clean them.
Opals require special care. Never use an ultrasonic, never use chemicals & avoid heat. Don't put your opal ring on the window sill when washing your hands or the dishes as strong sunlight can dry out the water in opals which could cause hazing or color change.
Soft stones like lapis, malachite, turquoise, amber and opals can easily be scratched by pin stems, clothing hardware & the edges of other jewelry. Protect pieces with these gemstones by wrapping them in jeweler's tissue & storing separately when not in use.
