Care advice for silver jewelry

What is silver?

Silver is a permanent material, and its silver color does not fade with time, but it generally darkens with age.

Can Silver discolour or discolour?

Silver reacts with substances such as hydrogen sulphide and oxygen, which are found in the air, on the skin, in textiles, in perfumes and in some skin creams. Silver jewelry that is stored together with other silver products has a tendency to tarnish more quickly.

How should I store my silver jewellery?

It is best to store all your silver jewelry separately, preferably in soft cloth bags. This not only protects against discoloration, but also prevents the jewelry from scraping against each other, which risks creating scratches.

In summary, silver is a very durable material and is therefore good to, for example, bathe, shower or exercise with.

What is Sterling Silver 925?

Silver is one of the most used metals in the world. In its purest state, silver is so soft that it cannot be used directly in jewelry making. Therefore, an alloy is usually used, a mixture with another metal, usually copper, to give the silver extra strength and durability. This special blend of silver and copper is known as Sterling Silver 925.

To be classified as real silver, silver jewelry must contain at least 92.5% silver.

How do I clean my silver jewellery?

To quickly and easily clean your silver jewelry, there are several options. You can use either a special silver polishing cloth or silver polishing compound. Another option is to use dish soap. Here are the steps:

  1. Mix a few drops of dish soap with a few drops of water to create a foaming lather.
  2. Let your jewelry have a nice bath in the foamy mixture.
  3. Then rinse the jewelry thoroughly under lukewarm running water.
  4. Wipe your silver jewelry completely dry with a soft cotton cloth.
  5. To get the shine back, you can finish by using a silver polishing cloth (available to buy on our website under "other" & in our store)

ATTENTION! When it comes to gold-plated jewelry, you should avoid using silver polish, as it can damage the gold plating and cause it to wear away.
