Jewellery Care

Opalescence jewellery is made with glass and sterling silver. Over time your sterling silver pieces will naturally begin to develop a silvery-gray patina. Some people love the antique feeling the patina gives a piece. If you prefer a brighter shine there are a few ways to maintain your jewellery's original luster.
  • Wipe your pieces with a soft cloth. When cleaning sterling silver remember that it is a very soft metal and can easily be marred. 100% cotton is best, other materials often contain wood fibers or synthetics. We recommed using a non-abrasive silver polish cloth at least once a month to keep your jewellery looking like new.
  • The best way to protect your sterling silver pieces from oxidizing is by keeping them in a sealed plastic bag when they are not being worn.
  • When oxidation does occur, you can use a silver polish cloth to restore the original shine, you should not use abrasive polish as it may scratch the dichroic glass. Pieces that have used glue to attach the glass should not be dipped into commercial silver dip liquids.
  • Body lotions, perfume, hairspray etc. will promote oxidation of silver.
Please wear your Opalescence pieces often and enjoy them. This is the best way to keep them looking great.
