Cleaning & Caring: Sterling Silver

Cleaning specific jewellery pieces

Jewellery consists of many different materials, metals, stones, gems and organic materials.

Each material brings its own cleaning challenges.  If in doubt please just wipe your piece over with a soft cloth after each wear.  This will remove dirt, grime and body oils before you place it back into storage which will keep it looking its best longer.

In some designs the stones or focal pieces are glued into position and some cleaners (even water) may loosen the hold over time causing the focal to fall out.

Caring for Sterling Silver Jewellery

Clean your sterling silver jewellery with a soft cotton or flannel cloth or a special sterling silver cleaning cloth. Remember, silver is very soft and can scratch if you aren’t careful so rub it gently. You may also use a very soft bristle brush, like a baby’s tooth brush or a horsehair silver brush.

Paper, polyester, and coarse fabrics can cause scratches on your sterling silver jewellery.

It’s recommended that you don’t use chemicals on your silver jewellery as it can leave tiny pits causing it to tarnish faster. Store your jewellery in an airtight container as silver will tarnish when exposed to air.
