Caring For Your Jewellery - Stainless Steel
We offer stainless steel for our key rings as they are strong and robust.
Stainless steel does tarnish will tarnish over time but is very easily cleaned.
With proper care, your piece of stainless steel jewellery will last a lifetime. Below are some tips to help you get the most out of your piece.
- Keep your piece away from showers, cleaning with chemicals, swimming or when sleeping. This helps limit the exposure to chemicals and stress from movement.
- Wipe your piece clean with a soft polishing cloth to remove any body oils from building up.
- Keep your piece out of humidity. Store it in a zip lock bag if you are keeping it in the bathroom.
Soapy water is the best and easiest way to clean your piece daily. Using a silver polishing cloth will also maximize the shine and luster you can bring back to your piece, other cloths or paper towel may have small fibers you can’t see that can scratch the surface.
Fingerprints can be stubborn to remove, window cleaner removes these best. Rinse with warm water and wipe with a polishing cloth after this step.
The oxidization (or darkening of the letters on your piece of hand stamped jewellery) may wear over time, this may be more evident after cleaning if you have worked too much into the grooves where the item has been stamped.
We are happy to re-oxidize your item for you, contact us to arrange.
