Be aware that silver tarnishes from all sources of chlorine and sulfur, and discolors from various other chemicals. Remove your jewelry before taking a dip in the pool or hot tub, and before using cosmetics, perfumes, lotions, and other chemicals that may cause it to lose its shine. Store your jewelry out of the elements, in the included tarnish resistant storage pouch, to help prevent natural oxidation.
Also, precious metals (silver, gold, etc) are soft metals, and can be scratched or bent if not careful. Rings usually take the most abuse, because we do everything with our hands. Be aware that any material that's harder than the metal that your jewelry is made from, will scratch your jewelry if it rubs against it with enough pressure.
Many of my pieces are unfused chainmaille, and thus made from many small rings individually woven together. If the piece is constantly pulled on or stretched (like if you were trying to force on a bracelet that was too small), the rings will eventually pull open and/or twist and create rough edges that will become uncomfortable to wear, and could eventually break. Take care that your jewelry fits correctly so that you aren't having to damage it just to put it on.
Jewelry can be cleaned using warm water and a mild detergent. Create a lather, then gently rub the dirty jewelry between your palms to remove scum and increase shine. Let air dry, or dry gently with a blow dryer.
Tarnish can be removed by rubbing with the included polishing cloth.
Femailler jewelry can be safely cleaned in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner.
