Here are some tips and tricks to keep your Coral Covey piece looking gorgeous.
Sterling silver jewellery will naturally tarnish with time. Keep your jewellery in its box when you are not wearing it. The natural woollen felt will reduce the likelihood of tarnishing. However, if your piece has tarnished, you can return it to its original lustre with the following options:
- Wear it more. Wearing a piece will naturally polish it.
An easy cleaning process:
- Place the jewellery in an aluminium bowl (or line a bowl with aluminium foil).
- Fill the bowl with hot water.
- Add equal amounts of salt and baking soda (e.g. one tablespoon of each).
- Let it sit for about five minutes.
- Stir occasionally.
- Rinse and rub dry.
If you have purchased a darker, grey piece with an oxidised finished it is important to remember that this may change with time. The higher points will continue to rub and expose the silver underneath. This blackening process that can be reapplied – please contact me for details.
I advise customers to remove your jewellery before these activities:
- gardening or cleaning (some household chemicals can damage metals or stones)
- applying beauty products. (makeup, perfumes, shampoo and conditioners can tarnish metals)
- showering or swimming (soaps, chlorine & sulphur baths can tarnish metals)
- playing sports (perspiration can tarnish metals)
- sleeping (to avoid damage to fine chains)
Some chains used with my pendant are ultra fine. Please be mindful when dressing to avoid your jewellery becoming caught on items of clothing.
