How to Care for Your Silver Jewelry

Your silver jewelry is a beautiful and valuable addition to your wardrobe, and with proper care, it can last for many years. Here are some tips on how to care for your silver jewelry:
Store your jewelry in a jewelry box or bag when you are not wearing it. This will help to protect it from scratches and other damage.
Avoid wearing your jewelry in the pool, or hot tub. The chemicals in these environments can damage the silver. However, wearing it in the shower is recommended since the soap helps clean the tarnish off.
If you do get your jewelry wet, dry it immediately with a soft cloth.
Do not put lotion or perfume directly on your jewelry. These products can also damage the silver.
Polish your jewelry regularly with a silver polishing cloth. This will help to keep it looking its best. If you do not have one, just washing it with soap and water can make a world of difference.
If you follow these tips, your silver jewelry will last for many years to come.
Additional Information
  • Sterling silver is an alloy of silver that contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This makes it strong and durable, but it also makes it susceptible to tarnishing.
  • Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. It is more expensive than sterling silver, but it is also more resistant to tarnishing.
  • If your silver jewelry does tarnish, you can polish it with a silver polishing cloth or take it to a jeweler to have it cleaned and polished.
You can also buy silver jewelry that has been coated with a protective layer to prevent tarnishing. This coating will eventually wear off, but it will give you a longer period of time before your jewelry needs to be polished.
