JEWELRY CARE Sterling silver will begin to tarnish over time due to a reaction with air & water. When tarnishing begins, use a silver polishing cloth to remove any dirt and/or tarnishing and to revive the original silver. Avoid storing in high moisture areas such as a bathroom. It is important to store your jewelry in a box to lessen any reaction with oxygen or in an airtight bag to prevent oxidation. Do not use with any chemicals or cleaning agents as this can leave residues, discoloration or alter the silver. Avoid using lotions, hairsprays and perfumes to keep your jewelry clean and sparkling. Keep separate from other jewelry to avoid scratching.
