How to care about amber and Polish silver ?
Baltic amber jewelry is easy to care for. As with most of the finer things in life a little care goes a long, long way. Baltic amber is a soft fossil gem. On the gem scale of hardness, a diamond is a 10 & amber is 2-3. It may break if dropped on a hard surface, although it is the hardest of all amber. Natural Baltic amber will become even more beautiful with wear. To clean, simply wipe with a soft flannel cloth dipped in lukewarm water and follow up by wiping gently with a dry, soft flannel cloth. You may use a tiny drop of olive oil to restore luster. Take care of your amber jewelry in the same manner as you take care of your other precious and semi-precious jewels. When not wearing, keep them in a cloth bag or in jewelry box, away from the light. Oxygen & light accelerate the natural aging process of Baltic amber. Amber is a living stone & will continue to change & evolve while in your possession. Did you know Polish sterling silver contains unique anti-tarnishing agents? Even so, you may find that even the highest quality sterling silver (usually designated/stamped as ".925" onto the jewelry itself) may tarnish due to the chemical composition of the silver. Occasional use of a polishing cloth--which are widely commercially available--will address the phenomenon of tarnishing in short order & keep your jewelry looking fresh & bright. Always apply your make-up, hairspray, etc. before putting on your amber jewelry. Never use sonic cleaners or expose your amber to solvents of any type. With minimal care, your amber jewelry will stay as beautiful & precious as the day you received it.
