Disclaimer: Some individuals may experience reactions or discoloration when wearing Sterling Silver jewelry. This occurrence is not indicative of the jewelry being of low quality or not authentic Sterling Silver. Sterling Silver is a precious metal alloy composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The reaction or blackening of Sterling Silver can be attributed to various factors, including the individual's unique body chemistry, pH levels, perspiration, exposure to certain chemicals, and environmental conditions.

To ensure the longevity and minimize potential reactions or discoloration of Sterling Silver jewelry, here are some general care tips:

  1. Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals: Remove your Sterling Silver jewelry before engaging in activities such as swimming, using cleaning products, or applying beauty products like lotions, perfumes, or hairsprays. These substances can accelerate tarnishing or cause adverse reactions.
  1. Proper storage: Store your Sterling Silver jewelry in a cool, dry place, preferably in an airtight container or a soft jewelry pouch to prevent exposure to moisture, air, and humidity. This helps slow down the oxidation process and reduces the likelihood of tarnishing.
  1. Regular cleaning: Gently clean your Sterling Silver jewelry with a soft cloth or a designated silver polishing cloth to remove dirt, oils, and any tarnish that may occur over time. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh cleansers that can damage the surface.
  1. Wear regularly: Surprisingly, wearing your Sterling Silver jewelry frequently can help reduce tarnishing. The natural oils produced by your skin create a slight barrier that can slow down the oxidation process.

It's important to note that while we strive to provide high-quality Sterling Silver jewelry, we cannot be held liable for any adverse reactions that individuals may experience when wearing our products. Each person's sensitivity and potential allergies are unique, and we encourage customers to be aware of their personal reactions to certain metals or materials.

If you have any concerns or questions about our Sterling Silver jewelry, please feel free to contact our customer support team, and we'll be happy to assist you.
