Talk to the turtle sterling silver pieces come with an anti tarnish pouch & product story tag. When storing your jewelry, ensure you place it in the air tight bag or pouch it came in and keep it in a jewelry box (dark place) to keep it from tarnishing. In the event it does tarnish, gently clean it with a jewelry polishing cloth. Refrain from using any harsh chemical products as it will damage the stones on the jewelry.
WEARING THE TAG NECKLACE
More often than not we get emails of how most people end up wearing their tag necklace day and night and even sleeping with their jewelry on. I really had not anticipated this overwhelming response in this regard but just want to pass on that you may feel the need to wear your tag necklace for several days and it has turned out to be quite the norm. Do not wear the cord in water i.e. (in the shower). I know of one surfer however, that wears a sterling silver chain and tag and wont surf without it. Silver will take on a Natural patina thru natural wear and tear and this is just a process that gives your item more character.
