Silver bracelets are an accessory loved by many, but it is important to keep them clean and polished to appreciate the full beauty of them. When cleaning and polishing silver jewellery you should always use a soft cotton or flannel cloth as synthetic cloths may cause scratching. There are also numerous cloths available specifically for the cleaning of silver which contain anti tarnishing chemicals. For the removal of light tarnishing, dirt or even make up you can simply use a small amount of liquid detergent or soap mixed with half a cup of warm water, following this just rinse in clean, lukewarm water and dry with a cotton towel.
If your silver bracelets require a more intense clean specialist pastes and dips are available, however care must be taken especially if the jewellery contains precious gemstones which can be damaged by these cleaning agents, if in any doubt always consult a jeweller before using these products. When cleaning with the paste it is best applied in a straight line motion as these pastes contain slight abrasives and applying these in a circular motion can cause visible scratching to the silver. Once the paste is dry it can be removed with a clean cloth or alternatively the piece can be rinsed in clean, warm water and then dried.At Something Elegant we stock a wide variety of silver bracelets and silver bangles for you to choose from so if you are thinking about treating a loved one or maybe even yourself take a look at our collection.
