With proper care your jewellery will retain its beauty and character for many years to come, it shouldn’t be put away for special occasions, it should be worn as often as you wish, it expresses you.
At Lmara&Co. we recommend you wipe your piece before you store it in the pouch you received with your purchase, then it is recommended you store each piece individually, this will avoid any unnecessary scratches. Your jewellery will inevitably pickup wear and tear but this will happen through its life journey with you, don’t let it happen whilst it’s not traveling with you.
STERLING SILVER CARE
Silver that is regularly used more often needs less care, so at Lmara&Co. we recommend you wear your silver every day or whenever possible, the oil on your skin and the fabrics on your clothes will keep it polished. Tarnishing is not a manufacturing fault of the merchandise, tarnishing is a natural occurrence that happens to Silver and the speed at which it tarnishes depends on many factors, especially those of which the silver comes in to contact.
Avoid wearing sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with strong chemicals particularly bleach products. At Lmara&Co., we also recommend you spray perfumes and apply creams before you put on your jewellery. If your jewellery does get immediate exposure or is left with chemical residue, we recommend you rinse in warm water and pat dry with a soft cloth. Avoid rubbing with tissue paper or paper towels as this can cause scratching to occur.
Clean your silver jewellery with a mild soap and water solution, allowing soapy water to froth up, then pat dry with a soft cloth after thorough rinsing. For more stubborn dirt or tarnish use a quality cleaning product designed for silver, but ensure after use the residue from the product is thoroughly rinsed away.
Jewellery should be stored properly. To prolong the life of your Lmara&Co. piece, it is recommended you store it in its original pouch and box when you are not wearing it.
Another key to storing silver jewellery properly is to store it only with other silver pieces. When storing jewellery of different metals together, the metals can rub against each other and cause tarnishing. Moreover, be sure not to store the jewellery in direct sunlight or in moisture rich areas which once again may effect the jewellery’s appearance over time as the moisture will cause the Silver to tarnish.
