Sterling silver naturally oxidizes and therefore tarnishes. Cleaning your jewelry regularly will help keep it looking brand new. Use a soft, lint-free polishing cloth to clean lightly. Please see your polishing cloth's informational label to make sure it is safe for sterling silver jewellery.
Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver. Gold vermeil jewelry requires special care. Remember to store your gold vermeil jewelry in an airtight container when not in use—and to remove before applying perfumes, lotions, or before bathing. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your gold vermeil jewelry. Avoid wearing gold vermeil jewelry while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.
To clean gold vermeil jewelry, buff VERY gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. NEVER use chemical cleaners on gold vermeil jewelry – it can strip the gold finish. It is natural for gold vermeil jewelry to tarnish with time—it adds character to the item and makes it more unique.
Gold will not tarnish, though pieces that are worn regularly can become dirty due to exposure to sweat, chemicals in soap, etc. Use a soft, lint-free polishing cloth to clean lightly. Please see your polishing cloth's informational label to make sure it is safe for gold jewellery.
