Store your jewelry in a dry place away from humidity, moisture and extreme temperatures. Exposed to the atmosphere, all silver is prone to oxidization and consequent tarnishing. Gently rubbing with a silver cleaning cloth will restore the original brilliance of the surface. Stone jewelry requires extra care and consideration while wearing to protect the setting as well as to safeguard the gemstone it holds. Do not use liquid cleaners for carved silver jewelry as the liquid dries into the engraving. If you wear your gold plated silver jewelry for long periods of time, the plating will eventually wear down. To restore its appearance, you can have it re-plated.
