Care & Maintenance
I recommend storing your jewelry in a soft, protected environment as it can be scratched by other hard items.
You can avoid tarnish on your sterling silver jewelry by wearing your pieces often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny. It's a good idea to remove jewelry when doing household chores. Lotions, cosmetics, hair spray and hair products, and perfumes are also enemies of precious metal and can contribute to tarnishing. Store your sterling silver elements in airtight plastic bags.
Wipe with any microfiber cloth. To really make it shine, wipe with rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth.
Polishing your silver works well when the tarnish is not severe. Silver is soft and can become scratched easily. Sterling silver elements can be polished with a proper silver cloth, but a lint-free flannel, microfiber, or other soft nonabrasive cloth will do as well. Do not use paper towels or tissues to polish your sterling silver as they contain fibers that can scratch.
The leather I use is meant to age with time. Gently spot clean a serious issue with a very small amount of mild dishwashing soap and water, otherwise just enjoy the way your wearing of the item is further customizing the piece for you!
