At Talisman, we consider every piece as a lifelong emotional investment. With relatively minimal effort, your pieces can be cleaned, well‐cared for and safely stored to last you a lifetime.
Storing and handling
To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.
Care should also be taken to prevent silver from getting tarnished i.e. the blackness of silver that naturally occurs when silver is exposed to sulfur or hydrogen sulfide. To clean your silver jewelry, use polishing cloths specifically formulated to remove tarnish. Though tarnish is a natural phenomenon, the best way to prevent tarnish is to regularly clean your pieces.
Cleaning at home
Dust and sweat can often accumulate on jewelry pieces causing grime. The good news is that it can easily be cleaned using a mixture of warm water and mild soap. Use a soft toothbrush to reach curved surfaces and gently rub the pieces. To keep your jewelry shiny and new, it is best to put on any perfumes, lotions or hair spray before putting on jewelry.
Gemstones are naturally robust and durable in nature. With regular use, however, they can absorb moisture and dust so special care should be undertaken when wearing them to avoid damage. The best way to protective gemstones is preventive care. Try to avoid contact with face creams, lotions and other household chemicals. Use a lint-free cloth to wipe them clean from time to time.
