Caring and maintenance is necessary for any fine Jewellery. Here are some easy tips to keep your sterling silver jewellery sparkly and beautiful.
Pure water by itself doesn’t damage sterling silver, but most of the water we’re exposed to in our daily lives is not purified. Chemicals and contaminants in the water can result in tarnished and dull looking silver, so it’s best to know what’s what when it comes to water.
Shower. It’s not a great idea to shower with your Jewellery on, but once in a while isn’t going to do any lasting damage. Just make sure to dry it after.
Swimming Pool. Take your silver off. Chlorine is a pretty harsh chemical, so if you accidentally forget to remove your silver Jewellery before hopping in, make sure to rinse and clean it afterward.
Hot Tub. Same idea as the swimming pool, but probably, there’s even more harmfull chemicalls in the hot tub, and the heat can potentially accelerate any chemical reaction.
Hot Springs. The sulphur in natural hot springs will tarnish your silver.
Body lotions, perfumes and hairspray can also discolour your Jewellery. Apply them first, let them dry, and then put your Jewellery on.
It’s best to store silver in individual boxes or bags.
You can use your Tales of Wolves Box or your travel pouch to protect your Jewellery on a daily basis.
If your favourite piece of jewellery looks a little bit dirty, simply wipe with a dry microfiber cloth, a lint-free flannel or a soft, nonabrasive cloth and polish it back to live.
Focus on maintaining long up-and-down strokes and Be sure to use different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading any tarnish.
You can make a nontoxic sterling silver cleaner from 2 parts of water and one part of baking soda. Stir into a paste and use a toothbrush or cleaning wand to apply this DIY cleaner in gentle motions and movements.
