Avoid exposing your gold to household cleaners, which will quickly cause gold to discolour. Use warm, soapy water to clean your gold pieces, dry thoroughly, and then polish off with a soft cloth. Do not use harsh, bristled brushes to scrub your pieces, as you may end up with unsightly scratches to the gold.
Sterling silver naturally oxidises and tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur. To keep your silver pieces from tarnishing, clean your silver pieces regularly, and wear it often. Take care to avoid exposure from household chemicals, hair products, perfume, cosmetics, perspiration, rubber, latex, chlorinated water, and harsh, direct sunlight.
Washing Silver: Wash silver by hand in warm water with a mild detergent. To avoid spotting, dry your silver immediately after washing.
Polishing Silver: Use a soft cloth or sponge to apply a silver polish. Rub each piece gently but firmly, using straight, even strokes. Wash in water with a mild detergent, being sure to remove all the polish. Rinse well in warm water, dry thoroughly, and buff gently with a soft cloth.
Storing Silver: Once clean and polished, silver must be kept dry and properly stored in a box or soft bag when not in use.
MATERIAL: RHODIUM and BRASS
Caring for rhodium and brass is similar to caring for your silver pieces. Keep your rhodium and brass items clean with a mixture of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse it well and dry it immediately and thoroughly to avoid spotting. For brass, be sure to work in the direction of the metal's natural grain as much as possible. You may also clean with a soft, polishing cloth.
