Summer Fun and Sterling Silver Jewelry May 22 2014

Now that summer is on the horizon, we are gearing up for a fun season of outdoor entertaining, camping and watersports.  It's natural to want to wear your favorite clothing and accessories for these fun activities, however some recreational choices may damage or alter the appearance of sterling silver jewelry.  Here are some tips to keep your fashion investment long-lasting looking tip-top!

NEVER wear your jewelry in a swimming pool, hot tub, lake, ocean or shower - chemicals and minerals in all of these waters can strip your jewelry of it's finish, cause a chemical reaction, or remove the oxidation from the silver.

If you are playing sports or even laying out sun tanning, we advise that you remove your jewelry, as sweat, oils and sunscreen can all be harmful to the finish on sterling silver.

If you find yourself at a campfire or thrust into chef duty, it's always best to take off your silver jewelry and store it in a safe place.  Campfire smoke can coat the jewelry and give it a dull luster, and many foods can also harm the finish of your jewelry.

If your favorite Pandora or Kameleon pieces are looking a little drab or tarnished, please bring them in and we will do our best to bring them back to clean, sparkling, and brand-new looking!
