STERLING SILVER: Sterling silver is a precious metal and may require cleaning from time to time. While our goods are treated with an anti-tarnish finish, over time exposure to oxygen and sulfur will tarnish your pieces. Household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, chlorinated water, substances which contain sulfur, and sunlight can cause corrosion and tarnishing. We recommend removing your Wellesley Row pieces when doing household chores, swimming or sunbathing.
To clean your Wellesley Row sterling silver pieces, we recommend using a silver polishing cloth. We do not suggest using liquid dip cleaners or paste cleaners as they can be very harsh. One of the best ways to keep your silver shiny is to wear it everyday!
Sterling silver jewelry develops surface scratches with wear. It's the nature of this precious metal and is not a product defect. Some people call them scratches, we think character sounds a bit nicer. One way to minimize scratching is to place Signature Gemstone between your Legacy Silhouette charms on your bracelet.
GEMSTONES: Please use a soft, untreated cloth dipped in water and gently wipe clean. Do not wear when showering or swimming. Avoid exposure to cosmetics, perfumes, dirt and perspiration. Do not use liquid dip cleaners on gemstones.
PEARLS: Please use a soft, untreated, dry cloth or slightly damp (not wet) cloth to wipe clean. Do not wear when showering or swimming. Avoid exposure to cosmetics, perfumes, dirt and perspiration. Do not use liquid dip cleaners on pearls.
Store your jewelry in a cool, dark place away from sources of sunlight, heat and moisture.
