Caring for your Sterling Silver Jewellery

Sterling silver, like other precious metal alloys, can oxidise with time. But properly maintained silver jewellery improves with age and develops a lush patina. Treat your silver well, care for it properly and it will reward you with a long life and a lustrous look.

  • Clean your silver jewellery with a mild soap and water solution, allowing the water to bead up, and then patting dry with a soft cloth. For more stubborn dirt, use a cleaner designed for silver use.
  • Store your silver in a cool, dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt or cloth.
  • Store pieces individually so that they don’t knock together and scratch.
  • Do not rub silver with anything other than a polishing cloth. Tissue paper or paper towels can cause scratches because of the fibres in these products.
  • Make sure your silver is not exposed to air and light during storage – this can cause silver to tarnish.
  • Don’t wear sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals.

To remove any tarnish the simple use of a special Silver Dip or rubbing with a Silver Cloth is all that is required to renew the brilliance and shine. You can purchase a Silver Care Product in any of our stores or online.
