Caring for your
handcrafted Fine Jewelry

A Deenie and Flip Jewelry piece lasts a lifetime

Our unique handcrafted jewelry pieces are made especially for you! As with all fine jewelry, we advise against wearing your jewelry while spraying perfumes, hair spray, showering, or swimming.

Taking care of sterling silver jewelry is essential to maintain its shine and prevent tarnishing.

Here are some valuable tips to help you take care of your sterling silver jewelry:

  1. Store Properly: When not wearing sterling silver jewelry, store it in a cool, dry place. Use a jewelry box or a soft pouch to protect it from air, moisture, and dust exposure.
  2. Avoid Exposure to Moisture: Water and humidity can cause tarnishing. Remove your silver jewelry before swimming, showering, or doing household chores involving water.
  3. Avoid Contact with Chemicals: Household chemicals, perfumes, lotions, and skin oils can accelerate tarnishing. Put on your sterling silver jewelry after applying cosmetics and fragrances.
  4. Wear Regularly: Surprisingly, wearing silver jewelry often can help reduce tarnishing. The natural oils from your skin create a protective barrier.
  5. Remove During Physical Activities: Take off your sterling silver jewelry during activities that could cause damage or scratches, such as sports or heavy-duty work.
  6. Clean Gently: When cleaning your jewelry, gently polish it with a soft, lint-free cloth. Paper towels or tissues can scratch the surface.
  7. Avoid Harsh Cleaners: Avoid abrasive or chemical solutions that can damage the silver. Stay with mild soap and water if needed.
  8. Tarnish Prevention: Consider using anti-tarnish strips or storing your jewelry with silica gel packets to absorb moisture and prevent tarnishing.
  9. Professional Cleaning: If your sterling silver jewelry has become heavily tarnished or dirty, it’s best to have it professionally cleaned by a jeweler.
  10. Inspect Regularly: Check your jewelry periodically for any loose stones or clasps. If you notice any issues, have them repaired promptly to prevent further damage.

 

Following these tips, you can keep your sterling silver jewelry looking beautiful and prolong its lifespan. Properly caring for your jewelry will allow you to enjoy your pieces for years.
