(1) Jewelry Care
Please carefully hang your piece or store in a hard box to avoid bending and tangling. Use a polishing cloth as needed to prevent tarnish (you can buy them at any jewelry or drug store). The more you wear the piece, the less it will tarnish. You can also use soap and water with a toothbrush. Or, a favorite trick of mine is to gently buff the surface with a scotch bright green scrubby. Use the green scrubby at your own risk, however. It removes dirt and most tarnish, but leaves a matte finish. Also, I'm always happy to clean and repair jewelry previously purchased from us, see the 'Repair' section below.
Oxidized Silver - Sterling Silver that has been exposed to pressure and oxygen from an extended period of time. Has a darker color that regular sterling silver and very little luster.
18k Vermeil - A base of Sterling Silver coated in 18k Gold.
Argentium Silver - still considered Sterling Silver. It's tarnish resistant, though it can tarnish over time.
