Sterling Silver naturally tarnishes when exposed to air and other elements. There are other factors that can cause tarnish as well: some skin types, lotions, exposure to other tarnished jewelry, improper storage, etc. How your jewelry is stored can make a difference in how quickly your jewelry tarnishes. When not being worn, your jewelry should be stored in a closed jewelry box or a plastic bag. It should not be touching other jewelry, especially if the other jewelry is tarnished.
The best solution for tarnish is prevention. To prevent tarnish build-up, you should periodically polish your pendants with a polishing cloth. Professional cleanings are recommended.
Our Sterling Silver is plated with rhodium for a nice bright white finish. Rhodium plating limits tarnishing and prolongs the life of your piece. Just like any other plating, rhodium does not last forever and will wear off over time.
Pieces purchased at various timeframes may slightly differ in appearance. We try our best to stay true to our beginnings but some changes will happen due to customer feedback, cost, manufacturing process & technology, inventory etc. We are always looking at improving our product to keep costs low and still deliver high quality.
