How to care for your .925 silver jewellery:
Keep it dry. It's not a problem if it gets wet, but do dry it quickly if you forget to take it off before showering.
-Remove it before swimming, saunas, hot tubs, working out, or household chores.
-Remove it before exposure to the sun, while getting ready to go out (to avoid getting cosmetics or creams on it) and while preparing food.
-To clean it, use a soft microfiber cloth and rub it in back and forth strokes (not little circles which can worsen the tarnish.) For hard to reach areas, a cotton swab will do.
-You may use a store-bought cleaner or make your own, using one-part baking soda and two-parts water. The paste formed is excellent to clean your silver, using a very soft toothbrush or cloth. In just minutes your 925 jewellery will shine beautifully!
Proper storage is also key to maintaining your silver jewellery. The best option is individual air-tight jewellery pouches. Putting several pieces together can cause scratching, tangling, or tarnish.
Black onyx is an emotionally charged stone that in India, is said to ward off the "evil eye." Wearing black onyx is said to help reduce stress, and keep energy levels high. Onyx is a gemstone that is a variety of the mineral chalcedony. When cleaning and taking care of this stone, you should keep in mind that onyx is relatively soft (6.5-7 on the Mohs scale of hardness), porous and easy to damage. The best way to clean your onyx jewellery is simply with a little water and a soft cloth. Do not wet the stone or soak it in water as onyx is porous and absorbs liquids easily.
You should not wear your onyx jewellery when bathing or swimming, and be careful not to knock or bump it as the stones are fragile and can easily be scratched.
It's a good idea to store your onyx jewellery in individual velvet pouches.
An advantage of 925 silver is that it requires less care and tarnishes less than 950.
If properly stored and cared for, your beautiful 925 silver jewellery will last a lifetime! Enjoy!
