Jewellery cleaning

All jewellery is at risk of tarnishing over time. Luckily there are a number of great products that can help you keep your favourite jewellery sparkling.


What is silver tarnish?

Tarnish is discolouration that can appear on silver jewellery. The first sign of tarnish is a visible yellow tint, which can develop into a deeper yellow or black. Tarnishing is a natural process, but it's recommended to address it as soon as possible.
