Something we get asked a lot about at Diana Porter is how to care for your silver jewellery. We have written a few tips to make sure you get the best out of your Jewellery and keep it looking its best for years to come.
Diana Porter’s silver collection is all made from 925 recycled silver. A precious metal that does need a little care to keep it looking it’s best. Over time, any sterling silver jewellery piece exposed to air will tarnish that’s because Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. It’s the other metals, primarily copper, that cause sterling silver to tarnish.
Here are tips for caring for your Jewellery:
- Avoid contact with creams and perfumes, which could react with the surface, such as hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, etc..
- Be mindful to remove jewellery before swimming and showering
- Take off jewellery if undertaking any sport.
- When your hands get wet be sure to check excess water on skin or underneath ring, especially if you have a wide or chunky ring. The moisture can make the tarnishing appear faster.
