Why Has My Jewellery Tarnished?

All Monica Vinader jewellery is crafted from Sterling Silver. Fine Silver is generally too soft for producing luxury jewellery and so it is alloyed with other metals to ensure all of our pieces are both long lasting and just as beautiful.

Silver is a very stable element, however the metals it is alloyed with can react to their surroundings creating a tarnish. This occurs particularly when the piece is exposed to water, chemicals, high temperatures or humidity.

To keep your jewellery looking its best please follow our care instructions.

If your jewellery does become tarnished return your item to us and we will repair this under your 2 year warranty. If you are outside of the warranty we are still able to offer you our repair service for your jewellery, for a fee.
