Taking care of your jewelry
Taking Care of Silver
Sterling silver, like other precious metals, can oxidize with time. But properly maintained silver jewelry improves with age and develops a lush patina. Treat your silver well, care for it properly and it will reward you with a long life and a lustrous look.
Clean your silver jewelry with a mild soap and water solution, allowing the water to bead up, and then patting dry with a soft cloth. For more stubborn dirt, use jewelry cleaner designed for silver use.
Store your silver in a cool, dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of felt or cloth. Store pieces individually so that they donít knock together and scratch. Do not rub silver with anything other than a polishing cloth. Tissue paper or paper towels can cause scratches because of the fibers in these products.
Make sure your silver is not exposed to air and light during storage. This can cause silver to tarnish. And donít wear sterling silver in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals.
