Some finishes will tarnish more easily than others, with the most susceptible being antiqued silver. Protectants are applied to all our finishes to help prevent or slow this process, but tarnishing may still happen depending on what you expose your jewelry to. You can clean tarnish off your jewelry with a soft dry cloth. Minimizing exposure to lotions, perfumes, sweat, and water, as well as cleaning your jewelry after every wear, will help protect the metal finish. Do not sleep or exercise in your new electroplated jewelry.
