Basically speaking a treated polishing cloth takes care of everything aside from the niobium and patinas. We include one with every order! You can wipe off the silver, bi-metal, gold filled, and rose gold filled. The patina and colorful niobium should not be wiped off, as this would cause the color to be lessened. The polishing cloth is treated with a chemical tarnish remover and a fine abrasive. When wiping the sterling silver pieces, just polish the parts you can reach. The parts you can’t reach darken, and that adds to the contrast and it looks richer over time.
The easiest way to care for your jewelry, especially the sterling, is to give it a quick wipe with the polishing cloth after you wear it and put it back in the bag we sold it in. The two things that react with the sterling are the chemistry in the fingerprints, and the chemistry in the air. By wiping it off and storing it in the airtight bag, it’s clean going in and stays clean. It is easy, fast and the piece is always ready to go. Another reason we recommend keeping it in the plastic bag along with our business card, is that should you have a question or problem, our contact information is always right with it.
