Sterling Silver

At Tarra Rosenbaum we only use sterling silver, one of the most beautiful and lustrous of all cool metals.  With proper care your jewelry will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Washing Sterling Silver

Wash your sterling silver jewelry by hand in warm water with a mild liquid detergent.  This will prevent everyday food acids, gases in the air and any unknown material that has a corrosive effect to be removed.  If by chance particulate is on your jewelry we recommend using a soft natural bristle makeup brush or tooth brush to dislodge it while washing.

Polishing Silver

The use of a silver polishing cloth is recommended.  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.  

When polishing use a soft cloth or sponge to apply the polish. Rub each piece gently buy firmly lengthwise, using straight, even strokes. You may use a small brush like a soft natural bristle toothbrush or makeup brush to clean decorative elements or detail.  Wash in warm water with a mild liquid detergent being sure to remove all the polish. Once rinsed in warm water dry the piece thoroughly and buff gently with a soft cloth. 

Special Considerations

An "Oxidized" finish may have been applied to the piece of jewelry you purchased.  This is deliberate blackening of crevices in the ornamentation of the silver work to enhance the detail.  With vigorous polishing this detail can and will be removed.

Storing Silver

Once cleaned and polished, silver must be kept dry and properly stored. Each piece of jewelry comes with an elegant presentation envelope. It will keep your piece protected when you travel or when it's resting in your jewelry box. To prevent the oxidation of sterling silver pieces, we provide a tarnish resist tab that can be stored with the jewelry in a plastic sachet. It's a small token of appreciation from Tarra Rosenbaum to you.  Enjoy.

Gold & Platinum

There are simple things one can do to keep their gold jewelry like new.  Between professional servicing one can maintain the the finish with a non-abrasive cleaner.  Remember to examine your jewelry regularly to make sure settings are snug and clasps are secure.  

One must avoid chemicals like household bleach and other chemicals which will cause gold to discolor and possibly disintegrate.

Gemstones & Crystals

Tarra Rosenbaum works primarily with non-porous materials. As such, the stones may be cleaned by running the jewelry under water, by placing with clear quartz crystals or with sound, such as the tone of tigsha bells. The crystals may be re-energized by placing them in sunlight or moonlight. In general, dark stones prefer the sun and light stones prefer the moon.

Accessing the metaphysical properties works best when you have dedicated the stone to its task, e.g. "manifest abundance". Simply hold the jewelry in your hands, ask that the stone "awakens"' then create the intention that the crystal is dedicated to the task you desire.

It is recommended that you cleanse the energy of gemstones and crystals after a day's use. 

Packaging

Each piece of jewelry you are about to purchase will arrive in a custom pouch to preserve the integrity of your investment. We have taken into consideration oxidation and have placed each piece on a padded bed with ribbon hooks and inserted this into a sealed bag, which includes a tarnish resist tab.  This bag then is enfolded into an envelop pouch with our custom logo ribbon tie. This custom jewelry bag is our gift to you so you may store your jewelry with the utmost care. It is our joy to give you this gift for joining our family of collectors.
