Care of silver jewelry
Sterling silver tarnishes naturally and requires occasionally cleaning. Storing your jewelry in plastic bags with an interlocking seal when not in use slows the tarnishing process. Do not store Pearls in plastic bags. Polish Sterling Silver, and other precious metals carefully with a Polishing Cloth.
A mild soap and water solution used with a soft brush is effective for many jewelry care needs. Although soap and water is the best choice for most gems and jewelry, do not use soap and water with amber, coral, emerald, jade, lapis lazuli, opal, or turquoise.
The least damaging method for cleaning silver jewelry (without other components) is using hot water, baking soda, and aluminium foil placed in a glass dish.. Place the foil at the bottom of the glass dish. Put your silver jewelry directly on the foil. After a few minutes wipe your silver jewelry with a cotton cloth.
Try to protect all jewelry from sharp blows, harsh chemicals, sunlight and extreme temperatures. Chlorine and related chemicals can severely discolor and damage jewelry as well as loosen stones. Put jewelry on after using cosmetics, hair spray or perfumes to avoid contact with chemicals which may cause damage.
Remove rings when working with your hands, such as performing household tasks, gardening etc. Carefully wipe jewelry with a soft cloth after each wearing to remove oils and salts. This is especially important for pearls.
Store jewelry separately so it will not scratch other jewelry. Cultured pearls are best stored in a special soft pouch. Do not forget to wear one in many your pearls . It takes moisture from your skin to keep their color and shine.
