Product Care

There are some guidelines for the proper care of your silver product, as silver will eventually tarnish over time.

Non Toxic Silver Cleaner

Items Needed:

1. Washing soda by “Arm and Hammer”
2. Aluminum Foil
3. Distilled Water
4. 1” deep cooking pan or similar container
5. Blow Dryer
6. Cloth or paper towel

Cleaning Procedure:

a. Line bottom of pan with aluminum foil, shiny side up.
b. Fill pan with warm tap water, enough to completely cover items being cleaned.
c. Depending on the amount of items being cleaned, dissolve 2 to 4 tablespoons of the washing soda in the pan.
d. Place Items to be cleaned in pan on top of the foil. Agitate the solution gently for about one minute.
e. First rinse cycle- rinse thoroughly in warm tap water
f. Very important step, second rinse cycle use distilled water only, swirl items through the distilled water for two to three minutes for the best results. Do not recycle the water use only the amount needed to rinse the items being washed.
g. Very important step, lay the items out on a paper towel or cloth towel and blow-dry the items. You must have the blow dryer close enough to the item to get it hot enough to evaporate out all of the moisture.

Commentary:

The steps f and g deal with the removal of the chlorine and the moisture latent on the chain. Without following these steps the merchandise will oxidize again very quickly.

No over the counter cleaning solution can totally restore silver to that “brand new luster”. However, this cleaning method will get rid of most of the oxidation.

Gold Plated Silver 

Gold Plated is a process of plating gold over sterling silver (French word for gilded silver).  Our gold plated jewelry is electroplated with 22K gold over sterling silver (925).  The plating is measured as in either mils or in microns.  Our gold plate is 20 mils. 

We offer a small selection of gold plated jewelry as in-stock, catalog items.  However, most of our jewelry can be specially ordered in gold plated, ( click here for the required minimum qty).

Anti-Tarnish Coating

The coating is non-toxic and hypoallergenic and is a plating process that puts a barrier on silver to extend the product’s shelf life.

This process is intended to help the merchant keep the silver jewelry clean longer and is not intended for the consumer. While the coating will extend shelf life (2 to 3 times as long), it does not guarantee that the silver will not eventually tarnish.

 

Multi Color Jewelry

The coating is non-toxic and hypoallergenic and is a plating process that puts a barrier on silver to extend the product’s shelf life.

Multi color silver is created by electroplating different shades of gold over sterling silver (.925). Different shades of gold are achieved through alloying process using copper, bronze and other metals.
