How to Maintenance Jewelry
How to keep your sterling silver jewelry shiny
Sterling silver, like other precious metal alloys, can oxidize with time. But properly maintained you will have a lustrous look at it.
- Clean your silver jewelry with mild soap, rinse with a water solution and dry up with a hairdryer.
- If you want to keep your jewelry after wearing it, store it in a dry place, preferably in a tarnish-preventive bag or wrapped in a soft piece of cloth. Make sure your silver is not exposed to air and light during storage – this can cause silver to tarnish.
- Do not rub silver with anything other than a polishing cloth.
- Wear your jewelry after you have applied lotion, makeup, or perfume.
