Each piece of jewellery from Amy Jennifer Jewellery has been handmade using the finest precious metals. Caring for your jewellery ensures that its looks beautiful each and every time you wear it. All sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time, but it will happen much faster when it becomes exposed to UV light, perfume, salty air, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine and detergents. The amount of tarnishing that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer. Tarnishing is therefore not a manufacturing fault.
It is recommended that you do not wear your jewellery whilst bathing, in bed or during exercise. Avoid spraying perfume or applying creams directly onto your jewellery.
In order to care for your jewellery, recommend using a polishing cloth regularly to prevent the natural process of tarnishing. Clean your jewellery using lukewarm soapy water and a soft brush, but ensure that your jewellery is never submerged.
Avoid commercial jewellery cleaning solutions as these can be too harsh and can remove patinas or destroy more porous stones like turquoise, opal, malachite, and coral.
To protect your jewellery, pieces should be individually placed in a pouch or within a soft lined box to stop them being scratched or tangled. Ideally store your jewellery in a dark, cool and dry place, and try to keep pieces apart, so that they don't rub together or tangle up.
