Scripted Jewelry is made from sterling silver. Pieces are deeply engraved and made with care so that you can enjoy them for years to come. However, there are some undeniable truths about sterling silver that need to be embraced to keep your jewelry in good condition once it arrives home. 



Expectations

Silver will tarnish

This is natural chemical reaction that occurs when the metal is exposed to oxygen. The rate and severity of the tarnishing can be greatly decreased by properly storing and caring for your jewelry.

Scratches happen

Sterling silver is a fairly soft metal and does not hold up well to extreme abuse. The best care is gentle wear. Take off your jewelry before engaging in high contact activities.

GOLD Plating Fades

Gold plated materials are composed of a base metal (sterling silver) covered by a thin layer of gold. With time, that layer can begin to wear away from natural friction. The only solution here is to have the piece re-plated. 

Care Instructions 


To keep your order looking nice between refinishing do the following. 

  • Wear your piece regularly. Light friction from daily wear naturally polishes your silver.
  • When not being worn, wipe off visible body oils and store in an airtight bag.
  • Put your jewelry on last to avoid direct contact with perfumes and body lotions.
  • Remove your jewelry before swimming, showering or using harsh chemicals.
  • Use a gentle soap and water to clean, if necessary. Commercial silver cleaners will remove the intentional oxidation that darkens your engraving.
  • Polish your jewelry from time to time with a soft polishing cloth (included). Use a light hand on gold plated pieces. 

Request a Cleaning 

When your jewelry is ready for a professional refinish, send a request through the link below. 

Once it is in studio, all components will be checked and tightened. Light scratches will be removed and the surface restored to the original finish. If your item was originally ordered as 14kt Gold Plated, it will be re-plated.
