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 1-2 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 a soft toothbrush or 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.

We do not recommend cleaning your rings in an ultrasonic cleaner for rings with small accent stones. The machine works by sending vibrations through the water and cleaning solution in a matter of minutes. All that vigorous movement can cause stones to become loose or even fall out in the machine.
