While we feel that the best way to care for jewelry is simply to wear it, a few easy steps can help extend the life of your favorite pieces. Sterling silver benefits from usual wear—the oils on your skin help protect it from tarnishing. If your sterling silver is looking a little dull, a silver polishing cloth can quickly restore its shine. Semi-precious stones should be wiped with a soft cloth and mild soap & water if absolutely necessary. Jewelry is best stored in a dry area away from moisture (i.e. don't keep it in the bathroom!). Place your jewelry in the provided jewelry pouch and box when not being worn.
