Silver Jewellery - Cleaning and Care
Even the most expensive jewellery will darken over time. Exposure to elements such as air and water and everyday wear can cause silver jewellery to dull with age. There are a few ways in which you can undo this damage to your most treasures jewels.
Many jewellery stores offer their own brand of jewellery cleaner but this never seems essential at the time of your purchase when looking at your new shiny silver jewellery. It is only when you are in a hurry to get to a special event that you notice how tarnished your bracelet, necklace or ring has become. Luckily there is a quick and easy solution that you can do at home.
Bring your Jewellery Back to Life
You may be surprised to know that you already have all you need in your own kitchen cupboards.
Retrieve the following items:
- Warm water
- Baking soda
- Aluminium foil
- Silver jewellery
Line the bowl with aluminium foil to protect from scratching. Fill the bowl with warm water and add baking soda and salt. Immerse your tarnished silver jewellery into the water and watch as your jewels are returned to their former glory. Even the most tarnished silver jewellery will be significantly improved within five minutes. Remove all the items when clean and place on a dry towel. Rinse the jewellery and polish with a duster. Cleaning your tarnished silver jewellery can take no time at all and is perfect to brighten up your silver bracelets, necklaces and rings.
This cleaning method works wonders on your sterling silver but avoid using this on your jewellery that is encrusted with stones or gems of any kind. Avoid using this method on oxidised silver jewellery as this will completely destroy the antique appearance and bring it up looking shiny and new.
