Caring for your silver jewellery

Sterling silver is a metal containing at least 92.5% slver. This is the legal standard of purity set by the assay office in Britain and used for most silver jewellery throughout the world. This means that the metal used is of a standard quality. Pure silver is not used as it is too soft to be practical.


Sterling silver will tarnish with time and wear. To take care of your sterling silver jewellery, polish it frequently with a soft dry cloth to avoid tarnish (do not use silver dip). Ideally, use a specially impregnated silver polishing cloth to ensure that your jewellery continues to retain its original lustre and shine.

We recommend you protect your silver jewellery by wrapping it and storing it in a cool, dry place keeping individual pieces separate to avoid scratching.

To bring back sparkle from faceted gemstones use warm water, washing up liquid and a soft toothbrush. Soak and brush inside the back of the setting and rinse.

Avoid contact with chemicals, perfume, hairspray and deodorant.
