At Rosa Mystica Medals, we recast our medals in sterling silver. Whenever sterling silver comes in contact with air, over time it will tarnish or turn a dark color. No worries because this is normal and easy to clean. All you need is a polishing pad, to rub away the tarnish. With just a few seconds of rubbing, your Rosa Mystica medal should be shiny again. You can also use silver polish to clean your medal.
The photo below shows a tarnished St Bernadette medal and one that was cleaned with a polishing pad.
Again don’t worry if your Rosa Mystica medal tarnishes. It means that your medal is real sterling silver.
