SILVER JEWELRY CARE TIPS
Sterling silver is a precious metal, it is one of the most beautiful and lustrous of all metals. It may require cleaning from time to time. With proper care, your silverware will retain its beauty and character for many generations to come.
Frequently used silverware usually requires less maintenance, so we strongly recommend you to wear your silver jewelry every day. If the silver jewelry is not processed and stored after wearing it, it is very likely that the silver jewelry will turn black or tarnish, especially when exposed to salt air and sulfur-containing products, such as some papers or rubber bands.
When not in use, wipe the surface with cotton cloth to remove water and dirt. Once cleaned and polished, silver must be kept dry and stored properly. Our flannel bags can protect it from abrasion and offer a degree of tarnish prevention. Bags made of Pacific cloth are also very effective in preventing tarnish.
It is best not to wear other precious metal jewelry with silver jewelry at the same time, so as to avoid collision, deformation and scratches.
BRONZE JEWELRY CARE TIPS
Bronze is a material that has been used to make artwork for thousands of years. Though bronze can last indefinitely, it is prone to corrosion or deterioration if exposed to harmful chemicals. If it is severe, corrosion can potentially destroy a bronze jewelry. Knowing how to care and prevent corrosion will help you keep your bronze jewelry intact for many years to come.
Bronze can be crafted into strong and beautiful pieces. Due to its copper content, it will tarnish and develop a green patina over time. This occurs when the copper reacts to moisture or air to oxidize in the process, so putting away your bronze jewelry after wearing it is a good caring idea always. Store jewelry in our flannel bag or cloth satchels to keep pieces in their best condition.
To prevent bronze jewelry from causing skin discoloration, use clear nail polish to paint the side of the bronze jewelry that is in direct contact with your skin (such as the inner side of ring or bracelet, the back side of pendant or earring).
A more permanent method is to spray your bronze jewelry with clear acrylic lacquer - this will create a glossy coating that prevents UV rays, moisture, and tarnishing on your bronze jewelry.
Car wax is an another solution to create a transparent, protective layer on your bronze jewelry. Apply and buff the jewelry in accordance with the wax's instructions.
