When cleaning high-quality Bali Silver, or anything with an oxidized finish, you must be very careful, because dipping a bead into a chemical tarnish remover may clean out all of the oxidation that was intentionally left during the production process, leaving you with a bright and shiny bead that looks nothing like it did when you originally purchased it. To clean these beads, we recommend using a polishing cloth with a light solution or paste formulated for jewelry that can be rinsed out with water. Be careful, because a thick polishing paste will be difficult to clean out of the more intricate beads. Of course, if you're really adventurous, you could lightly tumble your beads in a rock tumbler.
