How To Care For Your Jewellery
Sterling silver jewellery naturally takes on a blackish tarnish over time in reaction with air - these are easily removed! You can either buy a silver-cleaning cloth, or simply use some toothpaste on a cloth or brush - gently rub at the tarnish, then wash and dry to bring back the super-shine!
Fresh Water Pearls:
Fresh Water Pearls can be looked after with a soft polishing cloth. Never dip your pearls into any cleaning solutions or liquids. Avoid spraying perfume onto your peals and don't wear them in the shower or pools.
Pearls should be the last item on when getting ready to take on the world, and the 1st item off when you get home to rest.
Copper is a reactive metal, meaning that they will darken when exposed to air or water. This patina is attractive, but if you prefer the metal's bright shine, there are a few solutions.
1. Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle salt over the lemon half. Cornstarch and baking soda can be added to the mixture for a deeper cleaning. Rinse and dry with a cotton cloth.
2. The best solution is a polishing cloth. Polishing cloths are available from most jewellery stores, or you can order them online.
