Wear your sterling silver often! Your skin's natural oils will help keep silver jewellery shiny.

Avoid swimming or showering with your jewellery. Pure water will not tarnish your silver however chemicals and contaminates in the water can result in tarnished and dull looking silver. Avoid lotions, cosmetics, perfumes, hair spray and other hair products. Make your jewellery the last thing you put on.

Keep your silver in a cool, dark place away from sunlight, heat and moisture. Store your pieces separately in the bag provided to prevent any chance of jewellery scratching or tangling with each other.

Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth or chamois. For cases when the polishing cloth isn’t enough to remove tarnish, you can make your own silver cleaner. Soak the tarnished piece in a solution of 1/2 cup white vinegar and 2 tbsp. baking soda for two to three hours, then rinse and dry.
