SILVER CARE

Silverware and Jewellery 

  • Silver will naturally tarnish over time; to prevent this it can be cleaned with warm soapy water and dried with a soft cloth

  • When not in use, pieces should be stored in clean, dry and airtight environments if possible 

  • Perfume and other products can react with silver and cause it to tarnish and discolour. Apply perfumes and other products prior to putting on your jewellery. 

  • Avoid swimming and showering whilst wearing jewellery as salt water and chlorine can damage both precious metals and enamels. Also avoid wearing your jewellery while performing household tasks to prevent contact with cleaning products.  

  • Jewellery can be delicate so please wear and handle it carefully  

Cleaning 

To clean your jewellery, especially those with a frosted or matt finish, the following cleaning method is recommended; 

  • Line a small glass dish with some aluminium foil and place your jewellery on top ensuring it touches the foil.

  • Sprinkle the jewellery with 1tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda and 1tsp of salt. 

  • Pour over some boiling water until the piece is fully submerged. 

  • The reaction can be noticed fairly quickly, and the piece can be removed after a few minutes (be careful as the water will still be hot)  

  • Wash the piece in warm soapy water and dry it thoroughly with a soft cloth. If the piece is badly tarnished this process can be repeated. 

  • Multiple pieces can be cleaned at the same time so long as they don't rub against or scratch one another.
