Caring for your jewellery
Sterling and Fine Silver Care
All sterling silver will tarnish over time. The amount of tarnishing (oxidation) that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer.
I recommend using a polishing cloth regularly to prevent the natural process of tarnishing. You can also clean your jewellery using lukewarm soapy water and a soft brush.
I do not recommend the use of silver polish and silver dip as it may destroy the delicate oxidised details of your jewellery.
The best way to avoid tarnish is by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc . Oils from your skin and the oxygen in the air are what accelerate tarnishing on brass. If you want to slow the tarnish process, wipe the piece with a soft cotton rag after wearing and store in a plastic bag.
Brass will tarnish with wear so it's important you clean it regularly to keep it looking as good as new.
I recommend using either lemon juice and baking soda mixed to a paste or tomato ketchup (Yes really).
Apply using an old toothbrush or cloth and gently scrub. Leave on for about 30 mins. Wash off thoroughly and dry.
