Jewelry Care

all ruthie L studio jewelry are made of 100% 925 sterling silver

*please pay special attention to the care instructions below to preserve the jewelry in the best way possible.* 


Wear often:

you can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. the oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny.


Cleaning:

  • use warm water and mild soap
  • polish chain with a soft cloth or polishing cloth (do not use paper towels or tissues to polish your jewelry as they contain fibers that can scratch the silver.)
  • always dry the jewelry before storing


    Remove your jewelry when:

    • bathing
    • working out
    • swimming in the pool or ocean
    • putting on lotion, hairspray, perfume, or any other beauty products
    • cleaning the house or using harsh chemicals

    **If the jewelry is exposed to any of the above, please dry the piece before storing to preserve quality/vibrancy.**


    Storage:

    • in airtight plastic bags with anti-tarnish strips
    • in separate bags (silver is a soft metal, so the individual pieces can scratch each other)
    • link or chain necklaces/bracelets should be kept unclasped or unhooked to prevent scratching as well
    • in an area with low humidity
    • place a piece of chalk, a packet of activated charcoal, or a container of silica gel in the storage area to minimize tarnish
