Jewelry Care

 To preserve the look of your jewelry and to keep it looking like new for years to come, here are a few basics that should be followed. 

  • Silver and chlorine just do not mix. The chlorine will in fact damage the Silver as it is acidic, same goes for bleach. If you go into a pool or a hot tub where Chlorine is present, any solder seams will show as a very dark black line due to the chemical reaction. Clean with toothpaste and/or baking soda with a soft cloth or old toothbrush and your jewelry will be as good as new.
  • Long term exposure to Chemicals will cause "pitting". Preventing tarnish or pitting is easy. Remove all jewelry before showering, swimming or washing dishes. 
  • Don't wear during sports activity since you could risk damage.
  • Because of the Copper content in Sterling Silver some may experience discoloration on their finger. I have found that the PH levels in your skin can actually cause this discoloration at times and could indicate high levels of acid in your skin. 

I am not responsible for damage caused to your jewelry due to improper care.
