HOW TO CARE FOR ARGENTO JEWELRY

ARGENTO makes hand crafted jewelry in Sterling Silver. Gold Plated Jewelry, like other precious metal alloys, can oxidise with time. But properly maintained silver jewellery improves the age and develops a lush patina. Treat your silver well, care for it properly and it will reward you with a long life and a lustrous look.

HOW TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR ARGENTO JEWELRY

  • Store your Argento Jewelry in a cool, dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt or cloth.
  • Store pieces individually so that they don’t knock together and scratch.
  • Do not rub your Argento Jewelry with anything other than a polishing cloth. Tissue paper or paper towels can cause scratches because of the fibres in these products.
  • Make sure your Argento Jewelry is not exposed to air and light during storage – this can cause the plating to tarnish.
  • Don’t wear sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals, Remove before bathing, swimming or exercising
  • Wear after applying perfume, hairspray and makeup
  • We always recommend getting professional help to clean your Argento Jewelry
