Here we share with you some helpful tips on how to care for and maintain your SILVERSE jewelry:
- Avoid exposure to certain harsh chemicals or environments, since it will result in compromising the integrity of your jewelry. This includes, but is not limited to the following: perspiration, perfume, cleaning agents, chlorine, salt water and silver polish.
- We recommend to remove jewelry before going to bed, having a shower or participating in physical activity.
- Jewelry should be stored away from direct sunlight and heat, in a protective (lined) jewelry box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. It can also be stored in a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene. Never use polyvinyl plastic bags, such as trash can liners, as they contain sulphur compounds, or rubber containers which will make sterling silver tarnish faster and possibly turn black. Avoid storing your jewelry in the bathroom or any other humid places. Please note that our boxes are not made for long-term storage as they are not airtight and tarnishing will occur over time.
- In order to clean your jewelry, pour a small amount of mild soap into lukewarm water and use a small, soft toothbrush to clean your jewelry. If the dirt is hard to remove, soak the jewelry in clean water. IMPORTANT: Gold plated jewelry requires more care. Using your toothbrush very intensely may cause the gold plating to fade away, therefore it is very important that you do this process very carefully to avoid the gold plating from wearing away. If your sterling silver jewelry has become dull, a silver-polishing cloth is a great tool to make it shine again. However, it will not remove scratches.
*SILVERSE does not guarantee that its gold plated jewelry will last forever. Gold plated pieces are, by default, more fragile and liable to lose their colour over time. The speed at which the gold plating fades will depend on multiple variables from chemical products used for skincare, level of perspiration or even your natural skin PH. For this reason, it is particularly important to take special care of your gold plated jewelry.
