PANDORA provides a universe of hand-finished and modern jewelry primarily made from genuine materials, including solid sterling silver and 14k gold, along with a variety of gemstones, stones and cultured pearls to add sparkle and color to our genuine silver and gold jewelry. These originate from material categories commonly used in the jewelry industry - diamonds, gemstones, organic gems and man-made stones.
While sterling silver is highly durable and maintains a striking luster, it is prone to tarnishing and dulling because of chemical reactions with the air. Regular polishing with a silver polishing cloth will prevent a build-up of tarnish and preserve the silver's beautiful high shine, but it won't remove any scratches.
One of the safest and easiest ways to clean most jewellery is with mild liquid soap and lukewarm water, using a small, soft brush. Toothbrushes are ideal and get into hard-to-reach areas. If the jewellery is very dirty, leave it to soak for 10 minutes before rinsing with clean water and patting dry with a soft, clean cloth.
Silver polishing liquids and silver dips are not recommended for jewellery cleaning as they can destroy the oxidized details that adorn many of PANDORA's pieces. Silver dip can similarly ruin necklaces and bracelets as even the smallest amount of residue inside locks and chains will eventually cause deterioration.
