About 925 Sterling Silver Jewelry
Sterling silver is a metal composed of at least 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy (other metals) including, but not limited to, copper and nickel.
All products sold on this website are lead-free.
Silver in its pure form will not tarnish, but is too soft for use in jewelry and giftware. Sterling silver will tarnish. This is not a defect,
but the result of a natural chemical process that occurs when sterling silver is exposed to oxygen and other elements in the air. Other common tarnish
causing elements are wool, rubber bands, and latex gloves. Humid environments will accelerate tarnishing.
How should I care for my Sterling Silver?
Preventative maintenance is the easiest way to keep your sterling silver looking great. Avoid exposing your sterling silver jewelry to direct sunlight,
harsh chemicals like chlorine, cosmetics, hair spray, perfume, and perspiration. Also keep items in sealed polyethylene bags when not being used.
Washing your jewelry periodically with mild dish soap and warm water is a quick, easy way to prevent tarnishing. Be sure to rinse well and dry
completely with a soft cloth before storing.
Frequent light polishing with a cloth designed for use on sterling silver will also help minimize tarnish. Tarnish is easily removed when first noticed
(generally a yellowish tint). However, it will become more difficult to remove as it turns brown and eventually black, requiring professional cleaning and/or
harsher chemicals that can harm your jewelry.
