This lovely modern bangle has been handcrafted out of Ecosilver and set with a pretty Green Moss Agate gemstone cab. Finally, it has been polished by hand and given a thin coat of renaissance wax polish. Renaissance wax protects the silver and helps prevent/delay tarnishing.
The Sylverling Workshop is fundraising for TreeSisters. Five trees are planted for every order placed with us. Not only will you be wearing an ethically made, unique piece of jewellery, but you will be helping to build forests and improve communities as well.

Keeping Your Jewellery In Tip Top Condition
Sterling silver exposed to air, lotions, soaps and everyday dust and dirt will tarnish over time. Sterling silver is an alloy metal with 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. The copper content in silver makes the silver a harder metal than fine silver and so is easier to turn into everyday hard-wearing objects such as cutlery, medical equipment and jewellery. The copper in silver reacts to moisture and sulphur in the air which causes the silver to discolour and lose its shine.
It is easy to keep your silver jewellery in excellent sparkling condition.
Clean your silver regularly with a silver polishing cloth to remove any tarnish. Do be careful not to over polish your silver items and do not be too heavy handed with your jewellery.
Silver jewellery is best kept in an airtight box and/or jewellery pouch when not worn. This will prevent your jewellery from being exposed to the air for prolonged periods and the risk of tarnishing. It will also help prevent scratch marks appearing.
Try and limit your jewellery from exposure to chemical substances such as lotions and perfumes.
Swimming or bathing in the sea or swimming pool whilst wearing your silver jewellery is not recommended. Sterling silver can change colour when exposed to salt water and chlorinated pools, and the salt water and chlorine will damage Sterling silver far more than any other metal!
Anti -Tarnish paper tabs or strips are perfect to put with your silver when storing your jewellery away. Silica gel sachets can be put with your jewellery too. Both are great at absorbing any moisture in the air. Both Anti- Tarnish papers and Silica Gel strips can be widely purchased online.
