Samkas uses silver 925 to plated their pieces, one of the most beautiful and lustrous of all metals. With proper care, your silver will retain its beauty and character for longer time.
Silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers. However, silver that is regularly used typically needs less care, so Samkas strongly encourages you to use or wear your silver every day.
Do not use Silver Polish. Use a Jewelry care cloth. Some “dip” polishes contain harsh chemicals and should be avoided. Electrolytic cleaning (aluminum foil, salt and baking soda in a water base) is not recommended.
An “oxidized” finish is the deliberate blackening of crevices in the ornamentation of a silver object to make its decorative details stand out more clearly. Take care as this finish can be removed by overzealous cleaning and polishing.
