Care Guide for Sterling Silver

  • Sterling silver is a precious metal and will tarnish over time as natural gases in the atmosphere (sulphur or hydrogen sulphide) react with the surface of the silver.
  • Hydrogen sulphide is also found in everyday items such as paper, wood, eggs and onions. High levels of humidity will increase the rate at which silver will tarnish.

    To keep your Amber Snow Design jewellery tarnish free we recommend you use a silver cloth to remove dirt and body oils from your jewellery every time you wear it.

  • We do not recommend the use of silver dips or other liquid cleaners as they may contain harsh chemicals that could be harmful to your jewellery. Pearls, gemstones and other beads should be washing in mild soapy water and gently dried on a soft cloth.

    When wearing and removing your jewellery please treat it with care. Do not bring your jewellery into contact with hard surfaces or sharp objects, or subject it to any force or pressure, all of which may result in damage.

    Avoid contact with harsh household chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or chlorine, perfume, hairspray, deodorant or other products that may damage your jewellery. Do not swim or bathe wearing your jewellery.
