Sterling silver - how to keep it looking new

Posted by Mary McCulloch on

Sterling silver tends to tarnish over time, if not taken care of.  There are a couple ways to prevent this from happening.  

When storing your sterling silver jewelry, use a sealed polyethylene bag.  This will help to reduce the tarnish.  If you are storing your sterling silver in a display case, you can use desiccated silica gel to help reduce the tarnish.

If tarnishing does occur, use a polishing cloth designed for sterling silver.  This works best when tarnishing first occurs.  If the tarnish is more difficult to remove, a professional may need to be consulted.

Lastly, washing your sterling silver jewelry with mild dish soap and warm water will help to keep your jewelry looking like new.
