Sizing and Care of Your Jewelry
To ensure a proper fit, I recommend you use the please use the following guidelines.
1. Using a piece of string or a 1/4" wide strip of paper Wrap it around your wrist just below the wrist bone. The fit should be snug but not tight.
2. Make a mark on the string or paper where it overlaps to form a complete circle around your wrist.
3. With a ruler, measure the length of string or paper to determine your wrist size.
Consider how snug or loose fitting you want your cuff. Add the extra length to your total.
Cuffs are intended to be worn snug around your wrist with a 1″ opening. Open Cuffs are adjustable with a slight tug to make tighter or more loose.
Sterling Silver will tarnish with exposure to air. A protective coating has been applied to all Marye Brenda jewelry designs. In time, this coating will wear. You should never use abrasive metal polish, nor use toothpaste. The abrasives will wear away some of the metal, and the patina, if applied. The best way to remove tarnish is by using a Rouge Cloth/Sunshine Polishing Cloth, or by cleaning in an ionic or ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. It is recommended that occasionally polishing with a protective coating to restore its shine. I recommend Renaissance Wax.
Argentium Silver is:
- Highly Tarnish Resistant: Because it is a purer silver than traditional sterling silver, it is highly resistant to the effects of tarnishing agents.
- More Sterling Silver content than traditional sterling silver: Argentium Silver is 93.5% pure silver whereas traditional sterling silver is 92.5%.
- Recycled: It is certified that Argentium is produced using 100% recycled silver.
As a member of the Argentium Guild, Marye Brenda studios has applied for and has received the high honor of being a licensed user of the Argentium Brand and trademarks.
How to take care of Argentium Silver Jewelry:
Argentium silver is low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean. Simply wipe away any dust or finger marks with a soft cloth or, for more intricate pieces, wash them in warm soapy water, rinse and dry immediately to avoid water marks. An occasional wipe with a clean silver polishing cloth will help to maintain Argentium silver’s beautiful shine.
Avoid using coarse, contaminated or old cloths as they may impair the surface lustre of Argentium silver. Please do not use ‘dip’ polishes or electrolytic cleaning processes with Argentium silver. As recommended for other precious metals, it is advisable to remove Argentium silver jewelry before entering swimming pools/jacuzzis and before carrying out activities where Argentium silver could come into contact with chemicals.
