It happens to everyone.... tarnish. 
Tarnish effects precious metals such as sterling silver and gold. Over time, all sterling silver and real gold will tarnish! This doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your jewellery - tarnish is just a natural process, and in fact shows that your jewellery is real
Everybody's skin is different.  Some people find their jewellery tarnishes quickly, whilst other people never have a problem.  Much depends on your skin's individual Ph.  Other factors include exposure to soaps, lotions and perfumes, even in small quantities.  Also exposing your jewellery to chlorinated or salt water can accelerate tarnishing. 
In warmer months, humidity may make silver tarnish even faster. There is unfortunately nothing that will completely prevent tarnishing, but we do the best we can to help our customers minimise the effects of tarnish by offering the option to purchase a polishing cloth with all orders.  You can order your polishing cloth at the checkout.

  • Remove all jewellery before taking a shower or cleaning. Soap can cause a film to form on jewellery making it dull.
  • Don’t ever use toothpaste to clean jewellery.

Do not wear gold while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.You can remove tarnish with jewellery cleaner or by using soap and water. After brushing simply rinse with lukewarm water and allow to dry.
  • Always clean hooks with an alcohol swab before wearing any new earrings.
