What is Sterling Silver.
Sterling silver is a metal containing at least 92.5% silver. This is
the legal standard of purity set by the assay offices in Britain and used for
most silver jewellery
throughout the world. It means that the metal used is of a specific quality. Pure silver is never used as it is too soft to be practical.
What causes Silver to Tarnish
- Applying hair colour, permanent solution, etc. while wearing your jewellery
- Showering with your jewellery on
- Body Lotions (Applying any of these after you've put on your jewellery -
Perfume, Hair Spray, Sun Tan Lotion, Oils)
- Physical Activities (Sweat)
- Never Taking It Off
Caring for your Silver
Sterling silver will tarnish with time and wear.
To clean your silver
jewellery use a high quality silver cloth (do not use silver dip)
Jewellery with sandblast, brushed, cross-scratched
finishes should not be cleaned with a silver cloth, but by using
warm soapy water and a soft brush.
Store individual pieces separately to avoid
scratching. Protect by
wrapping in soft fabric and storing in a cool, dry place.
Avoid contact with chemicals, perfume, hairspray and deodorant.
To bring back sparkle from faceted gemstones use
washing up liquid and a soft toothbrush. Soak and brush inside the back of the setting and rinse.
