Babette Wasserman jewellery is handmade, please handle with care!
The majority of our sterling silver jewellery and cufflinks are rhodium plated. Rhodium is a hard silvery-white precious metal, from the platinum family, whose properties allow it to remain untarnished. There is no need to polish your rhodium plated pieces, they will remain as stunning as the day that you bought them.
Silver tarnishes over time, this is a natural reaction with the surrounding air. It is always advisable to keep your silver pieces in their closed pouches and boxes to avoid tarnishing. However, a quick wipe with a silver cloth will immediately render the jewels sparkling and clean. A silver cloth will remove oils, fingerprints and dust, and will keep your jewellery in pristine condition.
It is highly advisable not to wear your jewellery whilst bathing or washing your hands; this may loosen the stones. Try to avoid hard knocks or surfaces that may cause scratches, silver is a soft metal and will mark relatively easily.
Crystals are extremely fragile, please treat as you would a crystal glass, with great care.
A mild soap and a soft toothbrush is a wonderful way to brighten up dull stones, rub gently and then rinse thoroughly.
