Jewelry Care

Sorella Jewelry Studio recommends that you have your jewelry professionally cleaned at least once per year. Between professional cleanings, most gold and platinum jewelry can be maintained with a non-abrasive cleaner.

All precious metals will tarnish over time. Sterling silver will tarnish rapidly, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers. Lotions and even an individual's personal body chemistry can also accelerate tarnishing.

Proper jewelry storage is important. Sorella jewelry is shipped in a protective box or pouch along with an anti-tarnish storage bag. Between wearings, we recommend that you store your jewelry in the anti-tarnish bag. Wearing your jewelry while showering, washing your hands, or applying lotions will accelerate tarnishing.
