How to Clean Your Jewelry
Over time, all sterling silver jewelry will tarnish. You can clean your sterling silver in numerous ways:
1. Polishing cloth - They are relatively cheap and work well. Many come pre-moistened with cleaning solution.
2. Silver polish/Dip/Cleaner - There are a variety of sterling silver cleaners on the market. If you are purchasing a professional commercial cleaner, please make sure it is designed not just for jewelry but sterling silver. You can purchase a polish, such as Goddards' Sterling Silver Cleaner, which is generally a paste, or a dip. Squeeze a small amount of paste on a soft dry cloth and work into the ring, rinse off to remove the tarnish and the paste. Or dip for approximately 5 seconds at a time, until the tarnish is removed. Follow the packaging directions closely.
3. Baking Soda - Create a thick paste with baking soda and a little bit of water. Use your fingers to gently rub the jewelry with that paste, then rinse it under hot water. Finish by drying the jewelry with a soft cloth.
How to Clean Your Stones?
To clean your stones, mix 1/2 teaspoon of dish soap with 1 cup of warm water in a bowl. Let the jewelry soak in the solution for 2-5 minutes then use a small soft toothbrush to scrub away any dirt and grease. Clean the area under the stones where oil and dirt can easily get trapped. Rinse the jewelry in a bowl filled with clean warm water and lay on a towel to dry.
