Manor Factors can influence the wear and tear of your jewellery. You should take care of your jewellery to keep it in the best condition for years to come.
With time and wear Sterling Silver will naturally become oxidised and eventually tarnish. Storing silver in an airtight box when its not being worn will keep out the air that causes oxidation
Storage and Care
Air, perfume, chlorinated or salt water and household cleaning products can all damage or tarnish your silver jewellery. When not in use, store your jewellery in a box/ pouch such as the original packaging to avoid damage to the item.
Keep all jewellery dry at all times. Do not place next to heater, window, air conditioner or in the bathroom. Please avoid storing your jewellery in damp and hot conditions as this can cause silver and gold plating to discolour and tarnish.
Never wear your jewellery whilst swimming or bathing, washing up, cleaning or using chemicals, performing sports or heavy-duty activities.
Always put your jewellery on last when getting ready to avoid contact with chemicals found in perfume, hair and beauty products etc. Skin and hair products such as body lotions, perfumes and creams can react adversely with jewellery causing precious metals to tarnish and/or erode
Jewellery should be taken off before bed.
Wear and Tear
Please note that traces of wear and tear (e.g. scratches) are more visible on items which have larger polished silver or gold surfaces as on other items. These can occur even after a short time.
External influences like scratches and tarnishing are normal signs of wear and tear and are not material faults.
