Sterling silver does tarnish over time. When silver is exposed to air for long periods of time it can start to change its color. The amount of tarnishing that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer.
While tarnishing cannot be prevented, the process can be slowed down. We recommend that customers remove jewelry before going to bed or when performing vigorous activities such as manual labor, sport, cleaning, etc. Store jewelry in an airtight bag or with an anti-tarnishing paper tab can also slow down the process. Tarnished silver can be cleaned with a polishing cloth or soapy water and a toothbrush. You are also welcome to bring your jewelry to us for a free checking and cleaning. The staff at Bella Cosa Jewelers is happy to clean your jewelry free of charge, whether you purchase your jewelry from us or not.
Yes, to some extent. Since 18K white gold is actually 75% pure yellow gold, the jewelry must be rhodium plated. Rhodium plating is standard for all white gold jewelry and gives the item a pure white brilliance and luster. In time, however, the plating tends to wear thin, showing the natural color of the white gold beneath. Vigorous cleaning of the ring (such as with a toothbrush) can accelerate the process. Bella Cosa Jewelers offers free rhodium plating on all white gold jewelry purchased from us.
Yes we do. Whether you purchased your jewelry from us or not, you are more than welcome to have your jewelry inspected and cleaned FREE of charge. Moreover, if you purchased your pieces from Bella Cosa Jewelers, we will polish your jewelry for FREE, up to one time per year, for as long as you own it. A maintenance polish will give your piece of jewelry that new look again.
We recommend everyone to have your jewelry inspected every 6 months to catch any loose prongs, worn mountings, and general wear and tear. Of course, we do not charge for basic jewelry clean and inspection.
