Jewelry Care Tips

Use these jewelry care tips to make sure your Pixie Gem Shop jewelry lasts forever! All metals used in each piece are listed in the item's description.


Sterling Silver

Sterling silver can last almost forever if cared for properly. Although naturally prone to tarnishing, any silver piece can easily be cleaned & restored to it's original shine by simply wiping it down with a jewelry cleaning cloth, included with all sterling silver pieces purchased from Pixie Gem Shop.

Tips to make your sterling silver jewelry last forever:

  • Wear your jewelry daily, as your natural body oils will prevent tarnishing
  • Avoid chemicals such as makeup, perfume, and cleaning products
  • Wipe down with cleaning cloth regularly to prevent tarnish
  • Store in a cool & dry place
  • Remove jewelry when sleeping or exercising


Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is highly durable, hypoallergenic, and tarnish resistant. It is a great affordable alternative for sterling silver. You can wear it all day, every day. 

Tips to make your stainless steel jewelry last forever:

  • Remove jewelry when sleeping or exercising
  • If cleaning is needed, use mild soap & warm water


Non-tarnish plated copper & other metals
