Sterling Silver will tarnish over time and can be affected by external temperature, humidity and light. You can polish your Lois Hill Jewelry with a polishing cloth as needed. The more frequently you wear your Lois Hill jewelry, the less you will need to polish it. Avoid exposing jewelry to extreme sunlight and substances containing bleach or ammonia. Remove your jewelry before swimming in chlorinated water or the ocean. Avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics, or other household chemicals by putting your jewelry on after you dress.
Avoid jewelry cleaners. Our Sterling Silver is oxidized to bring out the textures and intricacies of each piece.
