After purchasing your new hand stamped jewelry in silver or gold, you will want to keep it looking as beautiful as the day you purchase it. Here are a few tips and tricks.
Silver oxidizes naturally when exposed to the air, therefore keep your silver hand stamped jewelry in an air-tight container when not in use. You can purchase mini oxidization retardation paper that you place in your jewelry box; it will help neutralize any oxidization that would occur. Be sure to keep a fresh piece of paper in your jewelry box, and change when you notice oxidization occurring. Gold-filled can be treated just like gold; it does not oxidize, or oxidizes very minimally.
When getting dressed, put on your hand stamped jewelry after you are done with hair and make-up. The chemicals and ingredients in most hair, make-up, perfumes and colognes can build up on your silver and gold jewelry and cause it to look dull and dirty. So be sure your jewelry is the last item you put on before you head out the door.
