Caring for your Silver

Sterling Silver Hoops

Sterling silver jewelry is as affordable as it is lovely. In these times we need fabulous jewelry that fit our budgets.
Taking care of your sterling silver jewelry. There is nothing worse than spending hard cold cash and your jewelry looks like you got it out of a gumball machine.
Clean sterling silver with a phosphate free detergent. A low abrasive cleaner, such as 3M Tarni-Shield Silver Polish, is a good choice for removing light tarnish. Some people use toothpaste to clean their sterling silver, but most silver experts caution against it because they feel toothpaste is too abrasive and leaves dulling scratches. Store your sterling silver jewelry in tarnish prevention cloths or bags. The treated cloth slows down the tarnishing process and keeps the jewelry from rubbing against harder jewelry that can scratch it.
Sterling silver jewelry that is worn continually often develops a lovely patina, a kind of glow combined with darkened areas. If you like the look, leave it alone. If you prefer a bright and shiny look for your sterling silver, use polish to restore the jewelry to its original appearance.
