Jewellery Care

Pure silver is very soft so it is commonly combined with other metals (usually copper) to produce a more durable product

Sterling silver is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals

All sterling silver items should have the 925 hallmark stamp on it

To avoid damage sterling silver should be stored in its own packaging when not in use

Do not expose silver to chemicals such as bleach, perfumes, hairsprays, chlorinated water or sea water

The reason silver needs to be polished is because it tarnishes

Silver is cleaned using a silver polish cloth

Matt silver is best cleaned using a pencil eraser.
