• Moisture in the air causes tarnish on metals. To limit tarnishing, it is best to keep sterling silver in airtight packaging such as a ziplock bag.

• Clean jewelry after each use by wiping with a soft dry cloth or a cloth slightly dampened with a mild soap and water solution. Do not soak jewelry in water or jewelry cleaner. Do not use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. Do not use abrasives such as toothpaste to clean your jewelry.
• If silver jewelry does tarnish, use a soft tarnish removing cloth such as Sunshine.
