Because good silver will eventually tarnish, the more care you take "now," the more cleaning time you will save later on. We recommend that you remove fingerprints and light tarnish with a silver cleaning cloth regularly. To remove fingerprints, oils or dirt, add a small amount of mild liquid soap to a half cup of warm water, soak for 2-3 minutes, rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry completely.
When the silver tarnishes, it is important to clean it with a silver polisher. It is generally best to stay with well-known silver-care product manufacturers, as some inferior products may cause scratching. Some examples are Twinkle Silver Cream (very gentle), Wright's Silver Cream (slightly more abrasive), and creams and pastes by the Hagerty company. These are readily available through supermarkets, jewelry stores and silver dealers, as well as on the Internet.
* Please note that the necklaces are costume jewelry, and due to the nature of gold-plated material, tarnish over time is inevitable.
