Cleaning Silver Jewellery

Sand brushed sterling silver is easier to take care of than polished silver.

 

With all Silver we reccommend when not wearing it that you store your jewellery in a sealed plastic bag, the less air that gets to it the better.

 

When polishing just use a silver polishing cloth or if tarninshing occurs use a small amout of tooth paste and a small brush to give it back it's shine.

 

Cleaning with Aluminium Foil

 

Sterling silver reacts with moisture to create a layer of tarnish or oxidation on its surface. Baking soda activated by boiling water in the presence of aluminum, will dislodge the tarnish by making it bind with the aluminum, leaving the sterling silver clean and shiny again. This is the simple, organic way to clean and polish your sterling silver jewelry.
