.***JEWELRY CARE INSTRUCTIONS***
Sterling silver and gold-filled components can last years with regular wear if taken care of properly. these materials will tarnish over time due to exposure to perfume, moisture, oils in skin and air.
***Your jewelry will last longer if you follow these steps.
*** its best to keep it in an airtight bag when not in use.
***keep away from excessive moisture. remove when exercising, showering and swimming
*** from time to time try to rinse with soapy warm water to remove oils and dirt before putting away.
***keep away from chemicals, perfumes and oils
***Jewelry cleaning instructions***
for non plated smooth items a polishing cloth is best. they can be found at the jewelry counter at most department stores
for all materials and delicate chain (excluding pearls and stones) I recommend connoisseurs jewelry cleaner. ( we get it at Target at the jewelry counter) for best results just dip quickly and rinse WELL with warm water and let dry. I recommend not using too often as it takes the outer layer of metal off. Not for use with pearls, stones and shells
another way to clean silver pieces (I don't recommend for gold-filled and gold plated) is to lay objects down in glass or plastic container on top of a piece of tinfoil, then sprinkle liberally with baking soda and add hot water, let sit a few minutes and then rinse well.
hope these tips help you to enjoy your jewelry for a long time. please contact me if you have more questions.
