Jewelry Care

All Patricia Geyling pieces are made of Sterling Silver (.925). With proper care, they can not only be protected from damage but can also be kept sparkling!

Here are a few suggestions:
In general, it is best to remove your jewelry during vigorous physical activity, while cleaning or doing laundry (some household cleaners such as bleach can cause harm), when bathing (soaps can leave a dingy film), and when you go to bed. (Hint: I soak my jewelry at night in simple, undiluted, multi-purpose cleaner. I use Mr. Clean but Fantastik or 409 will also work. In the morning, I rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Be sure to use multi-purpose cleaner WITHOUT bleach. *This procedure is recommended for gold, silver and gemstones such as diamonds but IS NOT appropriate for pearls and opals.)

To prevent your pieces from damaging one another, store your jewelry in separate compartments or protective bags.
Cleaning your jewelry often is recommended. This can be done easily using a mild detergent, warm water and a soft-bristled, infant toothbrush for those hard-to-reach places.
All silver tarnishes in time. Silver jewelry that is worn or stored in plastic bags will tarnish at a slower rate. To remove tarnish, polish your piece with a treated polishing cloth. Chemical dips can be problematic and their use should be avoided.

With a little attention, your piece will provide you with years of wear.
