First, you should check our blog for how to take care for Sterling Silver Jewellery.

Storage is Key: When not wearing your jewellery, store it in a cool, dry place. A fabric-lined jewellery box is perfect. Store pieces separately to avoid any chance of them scratching each other.

Last On, First Off: Your jewellery should be the last thing you put on before heading out and the first thing you remove when you get home. This rule will protect your pieces from exposure to perfumes, cosmetics, and other chemicals, which can be particularly harmful to sterling silver.

Avoid the Wet Stuff: Remove your jewellery before showering, swimming, or doing the dishes. Water can cause sterling silver to tarnish, and chlorine, in particular, can be very damaging.

Treat it Right: Despite being more durable than natural opal, synthetic opal can still be scratched or chipped if not handled with care. Be mindful of your jewellery during physical activities.

With these simple tips, your sterling silver jewellery can continue to sparkle and captivate for years to come. Remember, jewellery is not just an accessory it is an investment and a statement about who you are. By giving your jewellery the care it deserves, you are not just preserving a piece of adornment, but a piece of yourself.
