However, unplated silver will tarnish with time when exposed to air and light. This is natural, and can be easily cleaned with a polishing cloth. Store your sterling silver jewelry in a cool, dry, dark place to avoid faster tarnishing, separately wrapped in a cloth to prevent it from being scratched by other jewelry.Backing type: FishhookPerfect gift for Mother's day, Valentine's day, Birthday, Christmas, Anniversary as well any other occasion!
