Care and Maintenance

Pure silver, like pure gold, does not easy rust or tarnish. But pure silver is also incredibly soft, so it cannot be used to make jewelry.

Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper and that’s why it gets tarnished in time.

However, tarnish is no big deal and there are simple ways to clean and prevent it.


  • For the best maintenance avoid using cosmetics, spraying fragrancies, alcohol and chlorine or any other corrosive product while wearing your jewelry.
  • When not wearing your jewelry, it is preferable to store the jewelry in its original compartment. Try not to clutter jewelry together or it may be scratched. In general, your jewelry should be kept in a place with low humidity and away from high heat.


For routine care and for silver jewelry that is dull, filmy, or not yet discolored:

A quick every day wash in soapy water can be a sufficient way to keep them shiny. Mix a few drops of mild dishwashing soap in warm water and gently wash silver pieces. Rinse and buff dry with a soft cloth.

For silver jewelry that is heavily tarnished:

Use an aluminum foil pan or line aluminum foil in a glass bowl. Take a tablespoon or two of baking soda and put them into the bowl, mix it in with hot water and put your jewelry in it. Leave them for 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure that your jewelry are completely covered by water and they are touching the aluminum foil. Once you’ve done take a soft cloth or a touthbrush and remove any extra tarnish. Rinse well and let it dry!
