How to Care for your Jewelry:

  • To prevent tarnish on silver, store your jewelry away from air and moisture. I recommend keeping silver in zip-loc bags. There are also little anti-tarnish strips you can purchase online from 3M.

   How to Clean:

  • Shiny Silver: Use a polishing cloth, any commercial cleaner or toothpaste.

  • Matte Finish Silver: Make a paste of baking soda and dish soap and scrub vigorously with a tooth brush. This method is safe to use with stones. 

  • Tarnex (available in hardware stores) or any dip-it type cleaner works on matte finish cleaner as well. Dip the piece in the solution and rinse throughly. Avoid any stones when using this method. You can also paint the Tarnex on the silver avoiding stones if need be, and rinse.

  • Copper or gold included in a silver piece may be cleaned by the same method used on the silver part.  If the copper is oxidized it should be stable doesn't require care.
