Silver jewellery is beautiful and it has a charming, elegant and classy look. However, after a while your silver can start to look dull and tarnished as it is exposed to the air and light – it’s a reaction that occurs over time in the metal.

There are a few ways that you can prevent tarnish from forming and remove it when it does form, so that you can keep your silver jewellery looking gorgeous.

Anti-Tarnish Tips for Silver Jewellery
Cleaning Your Tarnished Silver Jewellery Items
The tips above will help to keep your silver jewellery from being tarnished, but eventually all silver will start to tarnish over time. It’s not the end of the world, all you need to do is clean it. If your silver jewellery items become tarnished, you can clean them by yourself by washing them in warm water with mild phosphate free soap. Then, rinse them and dry them thoroughly with a soft cotton cloth.
It is also a good idea to have your silver jewellery cleaned once per year using an ultrasonic jewellery cleaner. It is a bit of an expense, but it will keep your jewellery looking beautiful for a very long time. However, make sure that you don’t clean any silver jewellery that is studded with gemstones, as the chemicals that are used in the ultrasonic cleaner can damage the gemstone. If you aren’t sure how to clean a particular piece of jewellery, you can always ask your professional jeweller for advice.
With the right care, your jewellery will last you for many years and will provide you with a lot of joy and happiness.
