Jewelry Care

Sterling silver and Brass are alloys containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your jewelry by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store in a cool dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive, soaking in an anti-tarnish solution, or polishing cloth.
