Storing your jewelry is one of the most important parts of care. Silver jewelry should never be kept with other metals or in the open. Always store each of your jewelry pieces separately in an airtight bag/box/cloth pouch with anti-tarnish properties. Storing many pieces together in one bag/box may create tangling, scratching, tarnish, and this needs to be avoided for proper care. Store your jewelry in a place away from humidity, heat and excessive light.
