Care Guide

River Nomad jewellery is made from 925 sterling silver. A beautiful precious metal that does need a little love and care to keep it at its best.
We pride ourselves on offering you the best quality pieces, made to last for decades if they are taken care of, and we want you to keep your jewellery on as much as possible.

So, here is a few things you should know about:

Tarnish is caused by a reaction with sulphur that naturally occurs in the air. Don't worry, it is totally normal and very easy to solve. It can be removed by gentle rubbing with a cotton cloth. We will include a jewellery cleaning cloth for free in your order whenever we have it available.

Silver jewellery with no gemstones or pearls can be washed in warm water with a mild detergent. Completely dry with a soft lint-free, or nonabrasive cloth before storing. Don't use kitchen paper towels to dry as this can scratch your silver. 🙏🏼

Sterling Silver loves somewhere cool, dark and moisture-free to live. If you have some silica gel (the one that comes inside new handbags), pop a couple of those in your jewellery box to keep your silver dry.


Gemstones are natural materials. They can crack and be damaged easily when knocked against hard surfaces, so be cautious when using one of our lovely statement pieces.
As natural pieces, gemstones react to their environment. Try not to expose your gemstones to direct contact with chemicals such as detergents, perfumes or cosmetics. We don't recommend the use of our gemstone jewellery in swimming pools as they may be affected by chlorine.

Exposing gemstones to direct sunlight for long periods can make them fade or deepen in colour, so we highly recommend you store your jewellery in shady spaces or ideally in a pouch or jewellery box. 

We use our River Nomad jewellery all the time. We sleep with them, we exercise, and even we go diving with them! They do need a good cleaning every now and then though, but it is totally worth it once you see them shining bright again.
