Jewellery care

You can take various actions to ensure the longevity and beauty of your silver jewellery when caring for and mending it. Here are some general tips for silver jewellery product care and repair: 

1. Cleaning

  • Regularly clean your silver jewellery with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove dirt, oils, and tarnish.
  • Tissues and paper towels should be avoided since they can harm the surface of the silver.
  • If your jewellery contains intricate designs or hard-to-reach regions, you can clean them with a soft-bristled toothbrush or a silver cleaning brush.
  • When using commercial silver cleaners, be cautious because they may include harsh chemicals that can damage specific gemstones or finishes. Please read the instructions well and follow them exactly.
  • Make your cleaning solution by combining warm water and mild dishwashing and gently scrubbing your silver jewellery. Thoroughly rinse and dry with a soft towel.

2. Storage

  • Keep your silver jewellery cool and dry, away from direct sunshine and humidity.
  • To slow the tarnishing process, use anti-tarnish strips or pouches. These can be found in jewellery stores or online.
  • To avoid scratching or tangling, store each piece of jewellery separately.

3. Tarnish Prevention

  • Tarnish is caused by the natural reaction of silver with sulphur or hydrogen sulphide in the air. You may, however, take precautions to reduce tarnishing.
  • Avoid putting your silver jewellery in contact with chemicals like perfume, hairspray, lotions, or cleaning goods.
  • Remove your silver jewellery before swimming or showering, as chlorine or saltwater will hasten tarnishing.
  • Consider using a tarnish-resistant jewellery box or adding silica gel packets to absorb moisture.

4. Professional Cleaning & Repair

  • If your silver jewellery requires more than normal cleaning, visiting a silver-specialist jeweller is best.
  • Professional jewellers can clean your jewellery professionally, fix any damage, re-polish surfaces, and restore the original lustre.
  • Inspect your jewellery regularly for loose stones, damaged clasps, and other indicators of deterioration. Repairs should be done as soon as possible to avoid further problems.

Remember that these are only tips; it is critical to follow any special care instructions offered by your silver jewellery company. Each company may have its own set of recommendations based on the materials, jewels, and finishes used in their jewellery.
