Care Of Silver Jewelry - Tips from Beautiful Silver Jewelry

Wear your jewelry to help prevent tarnish!
Over time oxidation reactions can occur in silver jewelry, especially with sulfur and oxygen, causing silver to become tarnished.

Wearing and handling will slow the oxidation process and keep your silver polished, shiny and beautiful. It will eventually develop a beautiful silver patina. Enjoy wearing your jewelry - don't keep it tucked away just for special occasions!

Store correctly to minimize tarnish and scratches
Minimize tarnish as well as scratches by storing your jewelry in individual small plastic bags, as well as separate compartments in your jewelry box. Consider investing in a jewelry box that is lined with a 'tarnish-free' material to keep your silver bright and sparkling.

There are also anti-tarnish paper strips that you can place inside your jewelry box. Cut the strips into small pieces and place one in each small plastic bag with your jewelry. You'll find these strips at at a craft or hardware store.

Use a polishing cloth
One of the best way to clean your jewelry is with a professional jewelry polishing cloth. The cloth is treated with cleaning chemicals and not only will the cloth last a long time, it will give you an amazing shine each and every time. Silver polishing cloths are available at major supermarkets, at hardware stores and at jewelry stores. We prefer the yellow Sunshine Polishing Cloth - it's is the polishing cloth of choice at Beautiful Silver Give your jewelry a polish after wearing, and before you place it in its plastic bag. This remove oils, fingerprints and dust, and will keep your jewelry in pristine condition.

Minerals spas are great - just remove your silver before you jump in!
Please don't ever wear your silver jewelry in a mineral spa - your jewelry will turn very black.

Please don't dip!

Please.... never dip any silver jewelry in 'dip' solutions or commercial cleaning solutions even though it may say that it is for silver jewelry. Dip cleaners will work the first few times, but after that the silver jewelry may turn in color and will never look the same. And the gemstones in your silver jewelry may be damaged from the dip solution.

We do not recommend cleaning your jewelry with toothpaste and a toothbrush as this will scratch the silver.

Visit a jeweler
Take your jewelry to a jeweler about once a year. He or she will polish it and will also check the settings for your gemstones - a wise investment.

Take care of your silver jewelry now - it will last a lifetime and can be passed down as heirloom jewelry for future generations.

I have found a soft child's toothbrush (but not toothpaste of any sort) if used correctly can be effective and safe. Great blog!

There are many benefits to choosing silver. First, it is a very affordable metal that still gives any design or stone the elegance it deserves. This jewelry is a beautiful choice because it is hardy and strong, while still delicate enough to display the complex knots and designs with a shiny and beautiful finish.
