We want you to enjoy and wear your GAA jewellery for many years to come. However, for it to look its best, our jewellery does need to be looked after. Skin and hair products can react, causing the silver to tarnish and lose some of its shine. As many of our pieces contain a matt finish, this may tarnish quicker than highly polished surfaces. Everyday or very frequent wear, may speed up tarnishing especially on items like rings and bracelets which have lots of contact.
Treat your jewellery with care, removing rings and bracelets when doing rough or physical work, and avoid contact with perfumes creams and lotions. Hot weather and perspiration can also speed up the tarnishing process. Jewellery should always be taken off before the pool, shower, or sea. We would also recommend storing your jewellery in acid free tissue in a jewellery box when you are not wearing it.
A Silver ‘Dip’ solution is a great way to clean silver pieces, although always make sure the jewellery is then rinsed thoroughly afterwards. A simple way to clean jewellery is with warm soapy water and a really soft toothbrush. Then rinse well and pat dry with a soft cloth.
