Advice and maintenance
- Wear your jewelry often
The more you wear your Itsara silver jewelry, the more it will shine. Shower, hand washing, sea bathing, etc. are highly recommended! This creates a kind of very soft polish that makes the silver shine.
- Store in a dry place, away from light
When you are not wearing your silver jewelry, we advise you to place it in a dry place, away from humidity (avoid the bathroom), and light, like your Itsara box. This preserves their shine.
- To be avoided:
Contact with Chlorine is strongly discouraged, it blackens the silver (avoid excessively chlorinated swimming pools for example).
Bleach and sulfur (some hot springs, SPA) are also to be avoided.
But if this happens to you, the fact that the silver is massive, it can always be cleaned (see cleaning video below) or in the worst case re-polished.
Do you find your jewelry a little dull? Did you accidentally darken your jewelry?
Do not panic, it is a jewel in pure and solid silver!
You can keep it on you for a minimum of fifteen days, showers, baths, hand washing, etc. This will re-polish it gently and naturally. The more you wear it, the more it will shine.
You can also opt for a faster cleaning as we do in the workshop: with mild dishwashing liquid and a stainless steel ball. Video below
You can find lots of other techniques on the internet for cleaning your silver jewellery: for example, toothpaste with a toothbrush and a chamois finish, which works very well for smooth mirror-style jewellery.
But the best for rings, bracelets and necklaces, is to wear them for at least two weeks, non-stop and the shine returns. For earrings that are not worn every day, cleaning may be necessary from time to time.
