925 Sterling Silver jewelry is a timeless investment. Taking care of your jewelry will help ensure its beauty, lustre and longevity. After some time sterling silver can tarnish when exposed to the open air. Do not worry, tarnishing is a natural process and can easily be cleaned.
Inhale recommends to put off jewelry before going to the shower, hot tub, pool or when washing hands. Also we advice you to remove jewelry when participating in physical activity. Contact with harsh chemicals will result in compromising the integrity of your jewelry. Chlorine, cleaning agents, salt water, perfumes and silver polish can speed up the oxidation process.
It is particularly important to take special care of your gold plated jewelry. Inhale does not guarantee that its gold plated jewelry will last forever. However for our new collection we use 3 microns of gold plating for necklaces, earrings, bangles and bracelets and even 3 microns for rings. Usually this material ( in combination with different coatings we use ) should last for 2 years. If after some time your jewelry has lost its gold tone you can bring it to a jeweler and you can easily re-plate it. We only use high quality materials.
How to store?
Store your jewelry away from direct sunlight or heat. Optimally store your jewelry in a protective (lined) jewelry box or a tarnish-resistant pouch. An easy solution would be a plastic zip lock bag made of polyethylene. Please be aware of the fact that Inhale boxes/packaging are not made for long-term storing since they are not airtight and tarnishing will occur over time.
