As a general rule, your jewelry should be the last part of the outfit you put on and the first thing you take off to help decrease contact with oils, lotions and perfumes as well as avoiding the risk of a piece snagging on an item of clothing which could cause damage to jewelry and garment
Silver 925 can tarnish when frequently exposed to salty water, air, chlorine, alcohol, sulfur, humidity, perspiration, cosmetics, household bleach and other strong chemicals. To prevent tarnish from happening, we recommend you to remove your jewelry and avoid wearing it when engaging in the following activities:
- Household and outdoor chores
- Showering/bathing or swimming
- Using lotion, hair products, fragrances and other cosmetics
- Exercising at the gym or during contact sports
- Preparing meals
When storing your jewelry it’s best to store each item separately. This will ensure your pieces do not rub or scratch each other – whilst also avoiding any tangling of chains"
Silver is quite maleable, so it can be squeezed to fit though it is best to avoid bending too often as this will eventually weaken the metal. If you become concerned, simply bring it back to us for a check and a clean.
Keep your silver shiny and new by giving it an occasional buff with a silver polishing cloth which is available in Yasmin Jewelry shop too.
If you like your silver bright, you may want to store it in a small ziplock bag with some cotton wool to absorb moisture, it may not look pretty but it can reduce the amount of surface exposure.
- Apply a small amount of silver jewelry cleaner to a soft cloth.
- Gently rub the silver with the cloth several times.
- Then rinse the silver thoroughly in warm water.
- Dry and shine your silver with polishing cloth. This will remove the tarnish and restore shine.
If a plain silver piece without stones becomes dirty, a quick wash in warm water with a mild dishwash detergent and a soft toothbrush should dislodge the daily grime. But make sure to avoid soaking the jewelry too long.
Once finished, dry immediately with a soft cloth before finishing with a silver polishing cloth.
If your piece needs a little more than that, bring the piece to us for a professional clean, free of charge.
