A few notes on caring for sterling silver jewelry: like fine silver, sterling silver does tarnish over time. Exposure to chemicals can affect the appearance on silver (like hair dye, pool chlorine, some soaps, etc.). It is not recommended to wear sterling silver jewelry while bathing or swimming for this reason. If it tarnishes, sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with cleaning cloths or solutions that are labeled as being safe for silver. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
