Caring For Your Jewelry
All products featured on Cufflinks.com are selected with the hope that they are passed down from generation to generation as heirlooms. To ensure the longevity of your jewelry, we suggest you take special care in preserving it as soon as possible. Below are tips on how to clean your jewelry as well as instructions for proper storage.
Sterling Silver and Gold Vermeil Jewelry
Sterling silver tarnishes naturally and requires occasional cleaning.
Clean sterling silver and gold vermeil regularly with a soft polishing cloth to remove light tarnishing.
For heavy tarnishing, use a commercial jewelry cleaning solution, which can be found in many home supply stores. Follow the manufacturer's instructions very carefully.
Do not use cleaning solutions, polishes, and/or tarnish removers on pearls, gemstones, resins, fabric, or silver jewelry with oxidized finishes.
Stainless Steel and Plated Jewelry (including Palladium)
To avoid ruining the solvents used in plated or enamel items, these items should only be cleaned with a soft polishing cloth. They do not usually require regular polishing.
Titanium jewelry can be cleaned using lukewarm water and mild dish detergent, and then dried with a soft cloth.
A jewelry storage case is the perfect way to protect your purchase.
A storage case will help keep your jewelry away from sunlight and heat sources as well as prevent oxidation and tarnishing from exposure to oxygen in the air. Our storage cases have secure, segmented compartments so as to not scratch your jewelry items.
Wear And Care
Avoid wearing jewelry in chlorinated water or around harsh chemicals, as it can severely discolor and damage jewelry as well as loosen stones and settings.
To preserve gold vermeil do not expose it to water.
