All silver will tarnish naturally. There are many factors that will cause this, but the most common are the following:
Wool, food, perfume, chlorine and salt. There are other outside agencies but these are the main causes.
To keep your jewellery in beautiful condition, remove jewellery before swimming or showering, as soaps can cause a film on the silver, making it appear very dull, and chlorine at high temperatures can permanently damage your piece.
A soft silver polishing cloth is a great way to keep your silver shiny, or you can use a gentle washing up liquid with warm water and a soft toothbrush to keep it clean. After cleaning, dry thoroughly.
Frequent cleaning in this way is very beneficial, if more stubborn marks appear, then more abrasive cleaning will be necessary.
Our jewellery is fine silver (99.9%) and all chains, bracelets and jump rings are (925) sterling silver.
As fine silver is a soft metal, if worn on a daily basis, it will gradually age.
