Sterling Canyon wishes all Sterling Silver jewelry owners the best. With the year-end holidays approaching soon, we want to make sure you are primed with the proper care of your Sterling Silver jewelry. Sterling Silver is one of the most friendly metals to have for jewelry. It is more hypoallergenic than Gold and can be protected from tarnish with the use of Rhodium or Rutenio, a clear metal coating that can be applied by your local jeweler. Sterling Canyon also offers Rhodium coating on many of its Silver pieces.
When not worn, many people let their fine jewelry lay around on dresser or table tops. Bad habit. Keep the piece wrapped either in a felt bag or in the jewelry cleaning cloth that is free to all Sterling Canyon customers. Jewelry boxes are also a good place to store them.
Cleaning your Silver jewelry does not require rocket science. Warm mild soap and water is best, especially after wearing the piece. Body oils and skin can cake onto the metal, leaving it dull. Never send your jewelry to a jeweler to bathe in a sonic bath. This can damage either the stones on your jewelry piece or the turbulence and bumping around can scratch the metal.
Keep these tips in mind. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
