Caring for your Elle Blackburn jewelry can be simple and easy when remembering a few things. Taking the time to properly store and care for your pieces will be worth it in the long run.
Sterling silver jewelry can scratch and will tarnish or lose its shine over time with wear. The oxidation is a natural reaction. The good news is that they can be polished with a jewelry cloth or 100% cotton cloth. All you have to do is to rub your piece delicately. Very gentle brushing with lukewarm water, mild soap, and a soft toothbrush is also recommended to give extra shine to your jewelry.
An easy tip is taking off your rings when you are doing rough hand work that may damage a stone or the shape of a ring. We also recommend taking your jewelry off when washing your hands, cleaning, showering, swimming and exercising.
Here’s a little reminder, sterling silver jewelry pieces DO NOT LIKE :
- Sweat, heat & humidity
- Bleach & Chlorine, harsh household chemicals
- Hairspray, fragrance, cosmetics
Avoid letting your jewelry come into contact with these!
Ideally, jewelry should be stored securely in a fabric box or in a sealed plastic bag. Store them in a dry area and avoid placing your jewelry down on hard surfaces.
By following these steps, you will refrain your Elle Blackburn pieces from tarnishing and keep the luster longer.
