Sterling silver jewellery can be a beautiful and timeless addition to any wardrobe. However, it needs to be properly cared for in order to maintain its shine and luster. This blog post will cover some key tips on how you can take care of your sterling silver jewellery from United Bracelets to ensure that it lasts for years to come!
1. Clean Regularly
The best way to keep your sterling silver jewellery looking its best is by cleaning it regularly. Use a soft cloth or brush and a gentle, mild detergent to clean away dirt and debris without damaging the metal. It’s also important to rinse the pieces thoroughly after cleaning them, as any soapy residue could tarnish the metal.
2. Avoid Chemicals
It’s important to avoid exposing your sterling silver jewellery to harsh chemicals such as chlorine, bleach, or ammonia, as these can cause discolouration and damage the metal over time. If you need to use chemicals while wearing your jewellery, make sure you take it off first and don’t put it back on until you have rinsed off all traces of the chemical.
3. Store Carefully
When not in use, store your sterling silver jewellery in an airtight container or sealed bag with a piece of anti-tarnish paper inside. This will help keep the metal free from tarnish and dust while not being worn. You should also avoid storing multiple pieces of sterling silver together as this can cause scratches on the surface of each piece.
4. Don't Wear in Water
Sterling silver jewellery should never be worn when swimming or bathing in chlorinated water as this can cause discolouration and damage the metal over time. Similarly, you should avoid wearing your jewellery when doing activities such as gardening or housework where there is a chance of coming into contact with harsh chemicals or dirt which could damage the metal surface if left unchecked for too long.
