Silver 925 tarnishes with time as any metal.

Protecting pieces from the elements will help prevent your jewellery to tarnish. Cleaning your favourite pieces will bring back its original lust.

General Care

GENERAL CARE 

Silver Jewellery by Wara Designs_edited.jpg

Try and store your jewellery in a dry place. Do not store your jewellery in a bathroom where it will be exposed to humidity.
 

  • Avoid water: Remove jewellery when showering or bathing. Do not swim in the sea and in chlorinated water.
     

  • Clean and dry your hands before handling your jewellery to remove oils and humidity.
     

  • Never expose jewellery to household cleaning products, especially bleach and highly reactive solutions.
     

  • Keeping jewellery in closed boxes and containers can help to limit the amount of moisture and oxygen that makes contact with it. 
     
  • Consider storing your jewellery in an air-tight container such as a Ziploc bag when you’re not wearing it (particularly the pieces you very rarely wear).

Cleaning instructions

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
(SILVER 925)

OPTION 1 : SIMPLE & EFFICIENT -
Metal cleaning/polishing product

such as Brasso

  • Shake the can or bottle before use.

  • Apply a small amount of product to a soft cloth.

  •  Gently rub the jewellery with the cloth several times. (If the piece is really oxidated, let the product sit for a few minutes).

  • Rinse the jewellery thoroughly in warm water.

  • Dry and shine with a clean cloth.

OPTION 2 : THE NATURAL SOLUTION -
The homemade mixture

  • Mix two parts baking soda with one part water to make a paste. 

  • Rub the mixture onto the jewelry. (If your jewellery has dents, use a toothbrush to work the paste into the dents).

  • Let the paste dry completely to remove the tarnish.

  • Rinse off all the paste with warm water and soap (you can use a soft toothbrush)

  • Dry and shine with a clean cloth.

IN CASE OF HEAVIER DAMAGE : USE SANDPAPER

Choose your sandpaper:
What grit of sandpaper is required will depend on the surface’s damage:

  • If the damage is minimum, use 1200 grit sandpaper.

  • If it is more damaged, start with 600 grit (medium) sandpaper and then repeat the operation with the 1200 grit (fine).

Instructions:

  • Start by washing the piece using soap and water. Dry it well with a cloth.

  • Rub the piece with the sandapaper applying even pressure

  • Clean the piece and dry it well. You can then apply a cleaning/polishing product such as Brasso
