PRECIOUS METAL CARE
Sterling Silver: With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime. Care should also be taken to prevent silver tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. Use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You can find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at most hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible. Although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.
14k Rose Gold Fill & 14k Gold Fill: With proper care, your gold filled jewelry can last a lifetime. It does not chip or peel easily as gold plated jewelry does. Heavy wear and rough conditions will of course impact how your jewelry looks. This is true no matter what your jewelry is made of. Gold filled jewelry is cared for in the same manner as other precious jewelry. The absolutely best thing you can do for your Gold Filled jewelry is to clean regularly using a little bit of warm water, and a soft cloth to dry and shine after. Many chemicals marketed for cleaning jewelry are actually somewhat abrasive or corrosive and can cause some damage or color alteration to your jewelry. The best way to avoid this is to keep it simple. Warm water and a soft cloth are the best thing you can do to maintain the beauty of your jewelry.
VERMEIL: Vermeil is gold-plated silver. Be very careful to not rub off the layer of gold. Frequent wear and abrasive cleaning can wear off the gold. According to MyJewelryBox.com, you should not clean your vermeil jewelry with a liquid cleaner. Instead, a jewelry polishing cloth is safe to use on vermeil and effective on tarnish. Avoid wearing gold vermeil jewelry while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub. To clean gold vermeil jewelry, buff VERY gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. Make sure your polishing cloth is safe for gold and not too abrasive. Silver cleaning cloths may be too harsh on the gold layer and rough cloths can remove the gold prematurely. A polishing cloth may take a while, but don't rub too hard. If you don't have a polishing cloth, a soft, cotton cloth or towel may take off the tarnish, as well.
