Are you as obsessed with sterling silver? Its beautiful shine, incredibly versatile look, and just straight-up glamour?
Whether you are a jewellery fan or just keeping up with the hottest trends, we are just as wild about these stunning accessories as you are.
While buying beautiful jewellery is exciting, nothing ruins the mood more than lacklustre tarnish. Most of us dread the cleaning process, in fear that our jewellery is lost forever.
But, we are here to help! Sterling Silver care is easy, quick, and super convenient. You just need to know the right tricks.
We mean the sterling silver digits.
If they have a rating of .925, the material is sturdier and doesn't need as much cleaning. If it has a rating of .950, they will need constant polishing. All of Kawayee's Sterling Silver jewellery is .925 and will require a little less work to maintain than the silver you may have purchased elsewhere.
If you are unsure or there is no label in view, check with the jeweller. We strongly advocate checking digits. It guarantees legitimate silver.
Remember, with proper knowledge and care of your jewellery, your piece can last a lifetime. It is best to be absolutely sure you are getting REAL products.
Pure water does not damage Sterling Silver. However, most of the water we use in our daily lives is not pure. Chemicals and contaminants in the water can result in tarnished or dull looking silver, so it is best to know what to do near water
If you leave a fancy dress out in the rain, what happens? It gets dirty! The same principle applies to Sterling Silver care. You need proper storage for your stunning pieces. And, you also need to be diligent about maintenance.
Air exposure can wreak havoc by tarnishing your delicate silver. Don't just leave it lying on your nightstand or in an open jewellery chest.
It's best to store silver in individual, air-tight bags, such as a Ziploc Bag. These types of bags keep air out and keep the shininess and brilliance of the jewellery.
Unhook the jewellery to avoid potential scratching. Do NOT throw several pieces in the same bag to save time or space. This creates tangling, scratching, tarnish, which is what we are trying to avoid here!
We know how much you love your gorgeous ring or bracelet. We also know it can be hard to take these babies on and off again and again. However, it is critical for its sparkle, and here's why.
Strong chemicals like sulfur, sweat, chlorine and harsh sunlight can tarnish and corrode the brilliant shine you love in your silver.
Don't take your chances. It is optimal to remove jewellery during the following times:
Preventative care is ALWAYS easier than aftercare!
Silver is very delicate. Despite our best efforts, it can still get dirty. Fortunately, sterling silver care can be as easy as a fast rubdown.
To do this, just use a simple microfiber cloth or special jewellery cloth (not paper towels) to clean your goods.
Focus on long up-and-down strokes to clean the silver. Use different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading any tarnish. Do not use circular motions as it will magnify small scratches and make the tarnish worse.
For more complex or tight, detailed areas, go in with a Q-tip. It will get into every nook and cranny you need. That is it! Easy.
