All of Azulmalin’s jewellery is handcrafted in recycled sterling silver 925. We believe that our jewellery is made to be worn every day. These pieces are made to last and will get beautifully tarnished as time passes.
Sterling silver can oxidize over time as it is the nature of the material when it reacts to air. Tarnishing will likely occur on the surface and will give the piece added personality.
If you prefer to keep your jewellery shiny and untarnished, we suggest to clean your items after every use. We recommend castile soap as it is gentle and suitable for cleaning the silver. If you want to make your silver jewellery brighter yourself, you can gently rub the jewellery with a silver polishing cloth made of 100% natural cotton fibers.
We suggest storing your jewellery in a place that is not humid or close to a window - the idea is to limit the amount of air your jewellery is exposed to, which will help prevent tarnishing.
Wear your jewellery! Your natural skin oil helps prevent tarnishing and will also clean your silver.
If your pieces are heavily tarnished - please take them to a professional silver cleaner that uses green/alternative methods that are environmentally friendly.
