How to polish Sterling Silver?

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% Silver, it’s known for its strength and beauty. Pure silver is very soft, making it a poor choice for making Jewellery.

Sterling silver, like other precious metal alloys, can tarnish with time. But properly maintained silver jewellery improves with age and develops a lush patina. Treat your silver well, care for it properly and it will reward you with a long life and a lustrous look.

Polishing Silver

Silver can easily be polished using silver polishing cloth. You may need a silver polishing liquid if your silver is highly tarnished.

How to polish Sterling Silver at home?

Toothpaste Doesn't Just Clean Teeth

Tarnished silver jewelry can go back to being shiny and bright using the same product that keeps your pearly whites, Toothpaste.

All you need is a clean, soft-bristle brush and white toothpaste. Apply a small amount of toothpaste to tarnished silver jewelry and brush gently until the tarnish is removed. The last step is to simply rinse your silver jewelry with warm water, pat dry with a clean cloth, and enjoy the shine.

How to care for your silver Jewelry?

  • Avoid wearing Jewellery to bed. This prevents jewellery from scratches and damages.
  • Use the Polishing Cloth After Every Wear.

  • Don’t wear sterling silver in shower,  chlorinated water (Swimming) and avoid wearing your jewellery when working with household chemicals.

  • Store your silver in a cool, dry place, preferably in a flannel bag or wrapped in a soft piece of cloth.
  • Store pieces individually so that they don’t knock together and scratch.

Tarnish is only a surface layer of deposit, to remove any tarnish the simple use of a Silver cleaning liquid or rubbing with a Silver Polishing Cloth is all that is required to renew the brilliance and shine.
