Sterling silver, copper and brass will tarnish with age. To help slow this process, it is recommended that you do not expose your jewels to moisture for long periods of time (e.g. swimming, bathing or showering), and minimise contact with the following materials:
– skin creams and lotions
– materials containing sulphur (e.g. wool, leather, silk and felt)
It is advisable to store your jewels in dust free, well ventilated and dry environments. All jeshu products are supplied in cotton bags. It is recommended that you store your items in these bags to assist in the conservation of your piece.
Sterling silver: wash with a mild detergent and warm water. Rub dry with a cotton cloth. Do not leave items to soak.
Gold: soak in mild detergent and warm water for 15-30 minutes. Gently scrub with a soft brush and rinse. Blot dry with a soft cloth, then leave to air dry before wearing.
Copper & Brass: wash lightly with a mixture of water, vinegar and salt. Rub dry with a soft cloth.
Gemstones: wash lightly with mild detergent and water or commercial jewellery cleaner. Rub dry with a soft cloth.
