How do I care for silver?
While you are cleaning the house or swimming in a pool we recommend removing your silver, and gold or silver plated jewelry.

All jewelry is fragile and can be easily broken while in bed or playing sports. We recommend removing your silver jewelry during such activities to avoid kinking, scratches, and breakage.

How do I store silver jewelry?
Store your sterling silver jewelry in an anti-tarnish pouch or sealed bag, wrapped in an anti-tarnish cloth.

Always keep your sterling silver jewelry in a cool, dry place.

Most jewelers caution against toothpaste it is too abrasive, and leaves dulling scratches.
