SO, YOU'VE PURCHASED YOUR FAV ARTEMIS PIECES, YOU LOVE STYLING AND LAYERING THEM AND WANT THEM TO LAST A LIFETIME. REGULAR CLEANING OF ACCESSORIES IS SOMETHING THAT WE ALL FORGET SOMETIMES, BUT IT IS ESSENTIAL TO PRESERVE THE LONGEVITY AND QUALITY OF YOUR PIECES.
All jewellery on our site is silver plated, besides our sterling silver Snake Rings. Silver plated jewellery requires a little more care. They are more prone to wear. Fortunately, we’ve put together a super simple guide for you to ensure your ARTEMIS gems last a lifetime with the correct care.
Caring For Silver Plated Pieces
- Take off jewellery during showers, swimming (pool or sea), and cleaning,
- Put on your jewellery after your lotions, sprays and perfumes have dried,
- When storing, keep in a cool, dark place, or even in a jewellery pouch. As sunlight, heat and moisture are the main causes of tarnishing!
Regular cleaning of your jewellery only calls for some warm soapy water and a microfiber cloth or cotton bud. For a more robust clean, mix 2 parts water to 1 part baking soda into a paste, apply a small amount onto a cloth or toothbrush and scrub gently. Stay away from toothpaste – being a mild abrasive it can help to eliminate minor scratches but if not used properly it can damage and scratch your silver and leave it dull.
We are slowly expanding our range of sterling silver pieces. These pieces are stamped 925, meaning that it is 92.5% pure silver and is perfectly fine to take a hot bath or a dip in the sea in, however, over time sterling silver jewellery can start to look dull, but don't worry! In this case, just give it a quick buff with a cloth and it’ll be good as new!
Follow these tips & your ARTEMIS pieces will stay with you forever!
