Over time any sterling silver jewellery that is exposed to air can tarnish. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals.

To help prevent your jewellery tarnishing avoid wearing your jewellery in swimming pools and hot tubs and avoid contact with hairspray, perfume, body lotion and makeup.

To slow down the tarnishing process when you are not wearing your jewellery keep it in Worm Child packaging or in an air tight container. If your jewellery does tarnish please follow the steps below.


Sterling Silver (92.5%): Use a silver polishing cloth or submerge your jewellery into silver dip/rinse for a few seconds to remove any tarnishing. Then wash with water and dry. Avoid submerging stones, oxidised silver, bronze or copper into silver dip/rinse as it may cause discolouration.

Oxidised Sterling Silver (92.5%): Some Worm Child Jewellery is oxidised. If you submerge the whole item into silver dip/rinse you will remove the oxidised silver (the dark colour). What I would recommend is to only submerge the chain or the ring shank (un-oxidised areas) and then lightly polish the rest using a polishing cloth.

Bronze/Copper/Gold: Use a polishing cloth to restore the shine to your jewellery. If you feel it still looks dull simply soak your jewellery in warm (not hot) soapy water for 15minutes (preferably natural dish detergent, avoid chemicals). Carefully rub your jewellery with a polishing cloth. Then wash your jewellery with clean water and dry.
