Caring for your jewels

Silver can tarnish quick, but the best way to keep it shiny is by simply wearing it.  The natural oils in your skin will keep your jewelry like new.  If you are rotating your jewels, cleaning them up is as easy as wiping them down with a soft polishing cloth. 

14k gold filled is a great, durable and affordable alternative to solid 14k gold.  There is very little upkeep for 14k solid gold.  It can be worn in water and cleaned with a microfiber cloth to keep it shiny.

Silver is delicate, so make sure to use very soft, microfiber cloth to avoid scratching the surface.  Avoid putting lotion, oils, perfume or sunscreen directly on your jewelry to keep it from tarnishing.  If you get it wet with chlorine or salt water, rinse it off with regular water and dry.  

As for copper, bronze and brass, avoid getting them wet and if they do start to darken, use a soft bristle toothbrush and a bit of toothpaste to polish them back to their original shine.  Also keeping them in normal rotation will help preserve their luster. 

The handpicked stones in your Darling American pieces are fragile.  I highly suggest removing your jewels during high impact activities to keep them safe!
