All ARMOUR Jewelry is hand-made with a base of 925 Sterling Silver. Sterling silver is a precious metal and may require cleaning from time to time. Using a silver polishing cloth or soft cloth, rub the silver several times. If this isn't enough, use warm soapy water to soak. Then rinse the silver thoroughly in warm water and carefully dry. This will remove the tarnish and dullness, keeping your sterling silver like new.
*Please note: chlorine and bleach accelerate tarnishing and should be avoided.
Once cleaned and polished, silver must be kept dry and properly stored.
Bags made of "Pacific" cloth are also very effective in preventing tarnish.
When storing in flannel rolls, be sure it is absolutely dry. If the climate is humid, place a small packet of demoisturizing crystals (e.g., silica gel) inside the roll.
Do not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your gold plated jewelry.Wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your gold plated ring, bracelet or necklace.
Substances like oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily.
Make sure you don’t forget to remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or when swimming.After every use, clean your gold jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine.
If your jewelry needs more cleaning you may clean it with warm, soapy water. Soak it for a few minutes and you may clean it with a soft brush.
Stay away from jewelry cleaners and antibacterial soaps which may have certain components that will just make your gold plated jewelry tarnish more quickly.
To avoid scratches, wrap your jewelry in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewelry box separate from other types of jewelry you have.
