Sterling Silver Plated Finish:

Sterling silver plate over pewter/brass/bronze with an antique finish.  Just like sterling silver, this finish will tarnish when exposed to air over a period of time. 

  • Clean with a soft cotton cloth
  • Do not use silver cleaners or treated polishing cloths, this will damage the finish
  • Store in a non-tarnish bag 

Sterling Silver .925:

Many of our sterling silver items have oxidized detail.  This allows the small details of the design to stand out.  For this reason, you cannot submerse your sterling pieces in a liquid cleaner, as it will remove the oxidization in the design. 

  • Clean with a polishing cloth made for sterling silver
  • Store in a non-tarnish bag

Gemstone Beads:

Use a smooth non treated cloth to gently wipe the beads.  Do not submerse the item in jewelry cleaner or water, as this will damage your design.
