looking after your jewellery
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver with other metals such as copper. This increases its strength and makes it ideal for use in jewellery. It will tarnish in air. If you do feel it is losing its shine, I suggest using a soft silver polishing cloth, or cleaning in mild, soapy water then drying thoroughly before storing carefully in its box or pouch.
Many customers ask about use of silver dips. These can be useful for occasional use if there is a lot of tarnish present. They do contain harsh chemicals, however, and if you choose to use them you should do so sparingly, following the instructions very carefully. We regret we cannot be held responsible for any damage to jewellery following use of silver dips.
Gemstone-set jewellery should be treated with even greater care, as the chemicals can permanently damage the stones. We would suggest avoiding silver dips completely for gemstone-set jewellery.
