Ring Care and Cleaning Tips

Sterling Silver

Silver is soft and can become scratched easily. You can use a polishing cloth to polish your jewelry. A microfiber rag will work just as well. Avoid using paper towels or tissues to wipe your jewelry as they have fibers that can cause scratching. 

Contact with household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances which contain sulfur (e.g., mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool), will cause corrosion and tarnish — so it’s a good idea to remove silver jewelry when doing household chores. Direct sunlight also causes silver to tarnish, so be sure to take off your silver jewelry before you go swimming and sunbathing.

Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray, hair products, and perfumes are also “enemies” of silver and will accelerate tarnishing. There’s a reason generations of women have been getting dressed with jewelry last, as a finishing touch! 

Be careful with silver-plated items, as excessive polishing can remove the plating (depending on the thickness) and leave pieces looking worse than when you started.

Gold

The best home remedy for cleaning your gold jewelry is more simple than you may think. Mix a little dish soap with warm water in a bowl. Let your gold jewelry soak for 2-3 minutes. Remove the jewelry and scrub with a soft, clean toothbrush. Dry with a microfiber cloth and polish with a jewelry cloth. Repeat as often as you would like. Gold jewelry can not be overcleaned. (This process is safe for jewelry with diamonds as well).

Resizing and Repairs
