Caring for your SilverQuest Designs Jewelry

Our jewelry is hand-crafted of .925 Sterling Silver, meaning it's 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% copper. Copper is used to add strength to the silver and the jewelry is nickel free. 

Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on, after cosmetics, hairspray and perfume are applied. To keep your SilverQuest sterling silver sparkling for years to come, follow these simple tips:

Do not wear your sterling silver jewelry when engaging in the following activities:

  • Applying lotion, perfume, hairspray and other beauty products
  • Using cleaning products. Chlorine bleach and ammonia can discolor silver.
  • Doing laundry
  • Swimming and hot tubs
  • Bathing and showering
  • Sleeping

The regular use of our jewelry polishing cloth, available for only $5, will keep your sterling silver clean. For heavy tarnish, the use of a commercial silver polish such as Wrights Silver Cream works well on sterling silver. However, this type of cleaner is not recommended for sterling silver accented with oxidation as it may remove it.

Pearls – gently wipe with a soft cloth. Avoid jewelry cleaners or ultrasonic cleaners.

Roman Glass - to keep the patina of Roman Glass looking beautiful and iridescent, avoid contact with water. 

For best results and to minimize tarnish, store your jewelry in a sealed plastic bag when not in use.
