Tips In Cleaning Silver Jewelries

Aug 4, 2008
Silver jewelries are captivating and have always been for many decades. Men and women alike still find silver as an attractive jewelry. Its history is interesting as well. It symbolizes the female, the moon and the likes. But whatever its background is the bottom line has always been the same that we still stand in awe with silver jewelries up until the present time.

In fashion, not only gold will be able to stand out alone. Silver jewelries have their own way of captivating hearts although personally during weddings I must admit that I still do want gold to be my wedding ring. Otherwise silver will do just fine with other outfit and fashion trends.

Whether you buy silver jewelries because you stand out admiring them or just because it is cheaper than most gold jewelries, you must know how to take care of them and protect them to make that shining jewelry even more captivating with time.

To start with, you have to properly store the jewelry. To do this you will need to put it in air-tight sealed pouches. You should not put silver jewelries on wooden boxes because these emit acid that will easily tarnish the silver. This will cause too much trouble later on.

Use warm water, toothpaste and a piece of cloth made in cotton to clean dirt off your jewelry. Simply put toothpaste and soak in warm water then rub it with the piece of cloth. This should do the trick of bringing the shine of the silver back again. But of course there are polish spray or pastes available in the market that you can buy though you should expect it to be expensive. Even though many specialists would say toothpaste cleaning method should not be used, I must say that you could given appropriate way and should not be done all of the time.

Once you have decided on what medium you will use in cleaning your jewelry, it is time to give hints on how to do the cleansing. As I have said earlier, you can put toothpaste then soak in warm water. Once the soaking is done rub off the dirt using the cotton cloth but it is not just rubbing per se. You need to follow a certain motion which is lengthwise. Rubbing the silver jewelry in a wrong way and in all sorts of direction can cause scratches and may damage the surface of the jewelry. You can use soft brushes to reach those parts that are hard to clean like the insides of ring or whatever piece of jewelry you got.

In closing, it is important that you keep the jewelry absolutely dry before storing them. You have to always make sure to check the moisture because if you store them win even little moisture, they will certainly lose their shine. You need to keep your silver jewelry in shape and be proud when you wear them. Silver jewelries are meant to be always captivating after all.
