Jewelry Care

Silver is naturally a very delicate and soft metal which tends to get tarnished easily but not to worry, we’re here to tell that sterling silver Jewelry care is easy, quick, and convenient. You just need to know the right tricks and techniques. Remember, with proper care and knowledge of your jewellery, your piece can last a lifetime and beyond.

Genuine Products

It’s most important that the products you purchase are genuine. All of SAGACIA sterling silver jewellery is 925 and requires a little lesser work than the silver you may have purchased elsewhere. The material is sturdier and doesn't need as much cleaning. If you purchase jewellery from somewhere else and you're unsure or jewellery isn't marked or labelled, We strongly recommend to get it checked with your jeweller as It guarantees legitimate silver (Unfortunately, there is a lot of fake jewellery out there). It's best to be absolutely sure that you're getting GENUINE and EVERLASTING products.

Keep It Dry

Pure water by itself doesn't damage sterling silver, but most of the water we're exposed to in our everyday lives is not purified. Chemicals and contaminants in the water can result in tarnished and dull looking silver, so it's best to know what's what when it comes to water. Always pat it dry whenever it comes in contact of water or any other liquid. You can use common Hair Dryer to remove the moisture.

Keep in Air Tight Storage

You need appropriate storage for your jewellery and you need to be diligent about maintenance. Air exposure can tarnish your delicate silver. Don't just leave it lying on your nightstand or in an open jewellery tray. Moreover, don't just leave it in your purse or drawer. It's best to store silver in individual, dry, air-tight bags. These types of bags keep air exposure out, and keep the shine and brilliance intact. NEVER bunch several pieces in the same bag. This can create tangling or scratching and that is exactly that must be avoided.

For additional preventative efforts, silica gel packets provide anti-tarnish protection. Put one in each bag for extra care. If you are traveling with your jewellery, be sure to use a special case for protection.

Take Off Your Jewellery

Yes, we know that you love your jewellery. And, we know that it’s troublesome to take it on and off frequently, but, it's critical, and here's why.

Strong chemicals, sulphur, sweat and perspiration, chlorine, and harsh sunlight can tarnish and corrode the brilliant shine you love in your silver. Don't take your chances. Preventative care is significantly easier than dealing with damaged jewellery. It is optimal to remove gemstone jewelry during the following times:-

  • Household chores, such as dishes, laundry, and when using cleaning supplies
  • When exercising, at the gym, or playing contact sports
  • When showering or bathing.
  • Swimming, hot tubs, or saunas as the water may contain Chlorine or Sulphur.
  • Very hot places (such as when lying out at the beach or pool)
  • When getting ready (i.e.: putting on lotion, makeup, hair products)
  • Preparing, cooking, or eating foods that contain sulphur (this includes eggs and mayonnaise).
  • Outside chores or tasks, such as gardening.
  • Polish When Needed

    Silver is delicate, and, despite our best efforts, it can still get dirty. Fortunately, sterling silver jewelry care can be as easy as a fast rubdown. To do this, use a simple microfiber cloth or special jewellery cloth (Never use paper towels or toilet paper) to clean your goods. Focus on maintaining long up-and-down strokes to clean the jewellery. Be sure to use different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading any tarnish. Do not use circular motions here, as it can actually make the tarnish or dirt worse. Be sure to avoid polishing any part of the jewellery that is intentionally oxidized.
