How to care for your new jewelry
Sterling silver jewelry:
Sterling silver is a precious metal containing 92.5 percent of fine silver and 7.5 percent of other metals. Sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time. To keep its beautiful shine, you can keep it in an airtight bag to keep it away from oxygen that tarnishes it. If your sterling silver is starting to tarnish you can easily use a polishing cloth or dip it into a sterling silver cleaning solution.
