Jewelry Care

Silver jewelry naturally tarnishes over time and many factors can influence the condition of your piece.  By taking care to ensure your jewelry is properly cleaned, stored and worn, you can keep your jewelry looking their best.

 

WHILE WEARING YOUR JEWELRY

Protect your jewelry from tarnishing by avoiding sunlight, extreme heat/cold, humidity, direct contact with water and chemicals, impact with hard surfaces and scratches. 

We suggest removing jewelry before bathing, showering, entering the swimming pool, beach, jacuzzi, sauna or steam room.

Chemicals such as chlorine, detergent, bleach, oils, creams, make-up, hair products and perfumes should not come into contact with your jewelry as they can cause discoloration and affect the finish of the jewelry.

Handle jewelry gently and do not pull or yank chains.

 

STORING YOUR JEWELRY

Gently wipe jewelry clean with a microfiber cloth after each wear to remove any make up and oil.  Do not use tissue or paper towels to clean your jewelry, as they can cause scratching.

We have included a Static Intercept® anti-tarnish tab with each jewelry box, underneath the foam insert. It is non-abrasive, and it will reduce tarnish and corrosion while storing your Kith & Kin jewelry. Unfortunately, it will not remove any tarnish that has already formed.

Store your jewelry pieces individually in either an airtight bag, pouch or in the Kith & Kin box along with the anti-tarnish tab.  Storing pieces individually stops them from rubbing together and being scratched or tangled.
