Looking After Your Hand Engraved Sterling Silver Jewellery

Sterling Silver tends to tarnish over time, you will see slight yellowing with finger print marks or if the item is left unused for a long amount of time it will show as blackening.  There is no need to panick this can easily be remedied.

After use give your piece of jewellery or silverware a wipe over with a soft cloth or salvet (this is what we use in the jewellery trade).  This takes away the finger prints from the item which cause the tarnishing.  Alternatively you can use a silver polish, just make sure that you use a soft cloth to wipe it on or some cotton wool as you do not want to scratch the item.

Carefully cleaning and maintaining your sterling silver will prevent it tarnishing and will ensure it looks shiney and new for years to come.
