The best way to care for your precious Salty Cali pieces.
Sterling Silver (necklaces):
No No TARNISH, stay away!
Natural oils, sunscreen, and oxygen will naturally tarnish your jewelry over time. Sterling silver will tarnishes faster in areas with high humidity (hello, beach babes!) and air pollution, so store your jewelry clean in an air tight plastic bag when you are not wearing it.
Keep your Salty Cali pieces grime-free as much as possible, but when the occasional sun lotion gets in there or when natural tarnish occurs, you can...
- Mix a few drops of mild dish soap with warm water and dip in a soft cloth. Rub the jewelry, then rinse in cool water, and buff with a cloth until dry.
To keep away tarnish, wear your Salty Cali piece a lot (yes, friction slows down tarnishing!) and store them in an air tight bag on their day off.
Gold and Silver plated (hoops and bolos):
It's best to take off before entering any body of water, such as a pool, ocean, pond, lake, shower... you get the point. In the case that you do happen to get tossed in a pool unexpectedly, the best way to clean your favorite piece is to:
-Place your jewelry in a glass container and soak it in white vinegar for 30 minutes, being careful not to include stones and shells as it will damage these pieces. Instead, clean pieces with stones/pearls with soap and water only.
-Rinse and dry!
