How to Care for Your Silver Jewelry
Learn to care for your silver jewelry
Your jewelry deservers love and care. If you care for your jewelry properly it will give you a life time of appreciation and pleasure.
Here are some little tips to care for your jewelry properly.
- Put jewelry on after using perfumes and scented beauty products. Give the perfumes a chance to dry before wearing your jewelry. Perfumes can be very hard on jewelry and wet perfumes will tarnish silver very quickly.
- Silver is a very soft metal. Avoid wearing your jewelry when doing activities that could be hard on it. Remove your jewelry when doing sports or outdoor activities such as gardening. The silver will stay looking new much longer.
- When storing jewelry in a jewelry box, put each individual piece into a small plastic bag. Small zip lock bags work great for this. This will prevent jewelry from becoming damaged by rubbing against other pieces of jewelry as well as preventing tarnish from the air. If you would like a small bag included with your Metal Studio purchase, please just ask us at the time of purchase.
