The silver we use in our manufacturing is sterling silver 925, as indicated by the London Hallmark stamped by the Assay Office upon testing each product for purity.
All silver products can be liable to tarnish over time for many reasons such as direct exposure to perfume, chlorine, cosmetics or body lotions. Humidity and body oils may also cause discolouration, and even stress and diet are known to have an effect due to the release of toxins through the pores. Often wearing silver jewellery whilst exercising can cause silver to tarnish quicker due to perspiration.
We suggest cleaning your jewellery with a fine-grade anti-tarnish silver polishing cloth
A container that locks out air is preferable to storing your jewellery unwrapped in a gift box. The most common household items with this function are ziplock bags, or any other airtight bag with a non-abrasive surface.
All Scarlett’s pieces come in our specially-designed gift boxes. These are made using glue and other materials which may possibly cause tarnishing if the silver comes into prolonged contact with the fabric.
For orders over £75 we include a complimentary silver polishing cloth so you can clean and take care of your jewellery on a regular basis. If you wish to purchase one from us give us a call at the workshop.
We do offer a cleaning service, just give us a call on 01273 722 110 for more information. Postage is payable for shipping your jewellery to us and back to you by return, but we will clean your jewellery for free.
