{Taking Care}

Ever wondering "how can I treat my jewelry right"? Listen up!

  1. First things first: Last on, first off. Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on when you get ready in the morning, even after your perfume, and the first thing you take off when you get ready for bed at night.
  2. Give it a little polish after each wear with your Stella & Dot polishing cloth, which has special micro-abrasives that will clean but not scratch your jewelry.
  3. Keep your jewelry out of the shower and pool. That's just asking for trouble!
  4. Don’t store your jewelry in the bathroom- it’s humid in there! Try to store in air tight containers, especially while traveling. Our Jewelry Traveling Cases also provide suede lining to prevent scratching and several pockets to keep chains from tangling. 

What Causes Silver to Tarnish? The presence of Hydrogen Sulfide in any material that silver comes into contact with is one of the prime culprits. Touching jewelry after a meal causes tarnish. Wool, perfumes, lotions, hair spray and other cosmetics also cause tarnish. Humidity speeds tarnishing as well.

How Can I Clean Tarnish? Ok- so you’re the girl who forgets to take off her makeup before bedtime, not to mention your necklace and despite your love of your favorite earrings, you still swims in your jewels. Read jewelry polishing instructions carefully and use ones made for jewelry. No toothpaste or baking soda - too abrasive!

Keep those jewels sparkling!
