Silver naturally oxidizes, and can react to people’s PH levels in their skin. If your treasure is made of high polished or oxidised Silver it only needs to be rubbed with a soft cloth. Alternatively silver pieces can be cleaned gently with a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water.
The pieces with a sand brushed finishing, with pure silver-plating or Gold Vermeil maintain its brightness using our preferred cleaning method of placing a piece of aluminium foil in a bowl, sprinkling a teaspoon of Bicarbonate of soda, place your jewellery on top and then carefully pour over boiling water. Finish by rinsing well in lukewarm water.
Avoid using ‘dip’ polish or abrasive jewellery cleaners as these contain harsh chemicals and can destroy your jewellery over time. We also do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents.
