Silver Jewellery Care Guide

Cleaning and maintaining your sterling silver jewellery is essential to preserve its shine and beauty. Here are some simple tips to help keep your precious pieces sparkling:

Cleaning Silver Necklaces:

  1. Mix baking powder with warm water and soak your necklaces.
  2. Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.

Cleaning Silver Bracelets:

  • Follow the same cleaning method as for necklaces.
  • Alternatively, soak your bracelet in a mixture of warm water and mild detergent before rinsing and drying with a soft cloth.

Cleaning Silver Earrings:

  1. Remove your sterling silver earrings.
  2. Place them in a saline solution to gently remove any dirt.
  3. Pat dry with a clean cloth after removing from the saline.
  4. For gemstone or diamond earrings, use a very soft toothbrush to clean the silver.

Cleaning Silver Rings:

  1. Use silver polish on a soft cloth to buff the surface of your rings.
  2. Rub up and down instead of in circles.
  3. Rinse wide and dainty bands with warm water to remove the polish residue.

How Often to Clean Sterling Silver Jewellery:

  • Everyday pieces may not need frequent cleaning due to sterling silver's resistance to tarnishing.
  • Items left unworn for a while are more likely to tarnish and may require occasional cleaning.
  • Special occasion pieces need more frequent polishing as they don't experience daily wear and tear.
Proper Storage of Silver Jewellery:
  • Avoid storing silver with non-precious metals to prevent tarnishing.
  • Use soft jewellery holders like rolls or boxes instead of metal containers.
  • Add chalk or silica gel sachets to absorb moisture and reduce humidity inside the storage.

Showering with Silver Jewellery:

  • Remove jewellery before showering or doing dishes to minimize exposure to moisture.
  • Ensure skin products are dry before putting jewellery back on to maintain its appearance.
