A little vaseline can be applied to all pieces to help enhance oxidisation and enamel colour. Vitreous enamel is glass and although pieces are fairly hardwearing, care should be taken not to apply force or scratch the surface.

Tarnish on satin finished silver can be removed with silver dip clean.When not worn keep piece wrapped in acid free tissue paper (provided) to help prevent tarnishing.
