Silvery Care Instructions:
In dealing with tarnishing we first like to offer insight into this natural occurrence and then we like to approach the matter with solutions to suit all our customers.
Tarnishing Facts & Details:
The colour change or tarnishing of your Silvery item can be due to the pH levels of the wearer’s skin which varies in all people. The second most common reason for tarnishing is exposure to soap, chlorine, saltwater, perfumes and lotions even in tiny amounts. It is not a manufacturing fault or flaw. Some can wear items and never experience tarnishing, while others experience it almost instantaneously. 925 Sterling Silver is also a natural metal, so it reacts differently when exposed to skin or external factors.
Additionally, tarnishing can be related to a multitude of things that don’t necessary present themselves as a definitive culprits. With Silver being a natural metal, mined from the earth it is subject to reacting differently from one batch to the another which explains why one item might be perfectly fine and others react differently. As with most if not all things in nature it has a certain level of volatility.
Let’s Fix It:
With Silver being a natural metal as explained we are unable to offer guarantees against tarnishing or how items react. Tarnishing is not rust; it is important to understand that. It is a metal reaction related to external factors.
We have an easy to follow home remedy for cleaning it. This is highly effective and can be viewed below.
It’s always our aim to ensure that we fully assist our customers and offer them the most positive experience possible while still honouring the values and procedures of our brand. If you feel that you would like more insight or to verify what we have stated, please feel free to contact us directly
