925 Sterling Silver
Overtime sterling silver will tarnish/oxidise and start to look slightly dull in colour especially when worn in certain waters that contain chemicals. It is very important that you are aware when to take your jewellery off.
Avoid wearing sea glass jewellery in water as much as possible. It is transparent which in some cases may affect the colouring of the glass due to the silver tarnishing underneath, especially the lighter colours.
The more chemicals you expose it to or the more you wear your sea glass jewellery in water, the quicker the tarnishing process will occur.
Lotions and Perfumes
If you are using any lotions or perfumes, apply them first and let them dry before putting your jewellery on. These also contain chemicals that can speed up the tarnishing process.
When to take your jewellery off
To prevent any breakage/damage to your jewellery, it is recommended to take your pieces off when doing exercise, gardening, household chores etc.
Overtime silver does start to look dull, this is normal. Simply use a jewellery polishing cloth or just a micro-fibre cloth to gently polish the silver back up to make it shiny again.
How to store your jewellery
Make sure not to store your jewellery in your bathroom or around any moisture. It is best to keep in a dry safe place, preferably in a sealed bag or box. The box your jewellery pieces come in is perfect for that!
