Jewellery is often more than just an accessory. It can hold sentimental value, serve as a form of self-expression, or even represent a personal style statement. However, jewellery is also an investment, and one that we want to last as long as possible. Tarnishing is a common issue with jewellery, particularly for pieces made of certain metals. That's where tarnish-free jewellery comes in.
In this article, we'll define what tarnish-free jewellery is and why it's important to invest in affordable high-quality, long-lasting pieces.

Tarnishing is a natural process that occurs when certain metals come into contact with air, moisture, or chemicals. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to help prevent tarnishing and keep your jewellery looking its best. Here are some tips:

 Store your jewellery properly: Keep your jewellery in a cool, dry place and store it separately to prevent pieces from rubbing against each other. Avoid storing your jewellery in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Clean your jewellery regularly: Use a soft cleaning or polishing cloth to gently clean your jewellery after each use to remove any dirt, oil, or sweat. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as these can damage your jewellery.

Choose tarnish-free jewellery: By selecting pieces made from tarnish-resistant materials, such as stainless steel, sterling silver, gold or platinum, you can help prevent tarnishing and ensure your jewellery lasts for years to come.
Investing in affordable high-quality, tarnish-free jewellery has several benefits. Not only will your pieces look their best for longer, but you can also save time and money on cleaning and maintenance.

Jewellery that doesn't give green marks on skin

Have you ever worn a piece of jewellery and noticed green marks on your skin? This is a common occurrence, and it's usually caused by metal alloys that contain copper, brass, nickel, bronze or other reactive metals. When these metals come into contact with your skin's natural oils and sweat, they can cause a chemical reaction that results in green marks.

To avoid green marks on skin, it's important to choose jewellery made from materials that are less likely to react with your skin. Here are some examples of metals that don't turn your skin green:
Stainless steel, Sterling silver, Solid Gold, Rhodium and Platinum.
By choosing jewellery made from these materials, you can enjoy wearing your favourite chunky hoop earrings or your dainty rings without worrying about green marks on skin.
From wearing layering necklaces to wearing small huggie hoops, our tarnish-free jewellery are designed to be worn in the shower or in the pool because they are specially treated to resist tarnishing and are typically more durable than traditional jewellery.
If you're looking for jewellery that can stand up to your active lifestyle, consider investing in tarnish-free pieces that you can wear in the shower and beyond.

In conclusion, tarnish-free jewellery offers a long-lasting and durable option for those looking to invest in affordable quality pieces.
By understanding the common causes of tarnishing and taking preventative measures, such as storing jewellery properly and cleaning it regularly, you can keep your jewellery looking like new for years to come.
