Jewellery Care

Caring for your Jewellery is something that can be sometimes overlooked or not understood properly, it’s not something that needs to be done too often but it really can make a huge difference to the look of your favourite items.

Here below is the easiest way to clean the 925 Sterling Silver & the Silver Plated items we sell.

Silver Plated Items.

Silver plated jewellery must be cared for properly or it may tarnish or rust. Caring for it means cleaning it. Whilst you could have it professionally cleaned, it is less expensive to clean at home. You don’t even need silver polish to do it, all you need are a few items that you probably have in your kitchen cupboards.

Mix together equal parts baking soda and water to form a thick paste. Dab the paste ;iberally onto the silver plated jewellery and let it sit for an hour.
Scrub the jewellery gently using a childrens toothbrush or old adults brush. Rinse the paste off and allow to dry freely.
Place a sheet of tin foil into a shallow plastic or glass bowl (DO NOT use a metal bowl as this can interfere with the tin foil). Sprinkle 2 tbsp of baking soda and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt onto the foil.
Put your silver plated jewellery into the bowl and pour hot water into the bowl and on top of the jewellery.
Cover the bowl and wait for around 5 minutes. Remove the cover and take out your jewellery. The foil, baking soda & salt which must be dissolved in the hot water creates a reaction that removes tarnishes from the silver.
