How should I store my sterling silver jewelry?

Store your silver jewelry in cloth pouch, or in compartment in your jewelry box. Keeping your fine jewelry safe will minimize scratches and damage. Store pieces in a separate plastic zip lock bags to reduce tarnishing and oxidation.

Should I avoid chemicals while wearing my sterling silver jewelry?

Avoid household chemicals including chemicals such as bleach, chlorine, ammonia or cleansers that may damage the finish on your silver jewelry. Try to avoid beach sand which may scratch the antique finish or shine.

How should I clean and care for my sterling silver jewelry?

Prevent tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with the sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in ambient air. Clean your silver jewelry with polishes made specifically for use on sterling silver to remove tarnish. Silver polishes and solutions may be found at hardware stores, discount retailers, department stores, and jewelry stores. I recommend a treated sterling silver polishing cloth to easily remove excess tarnish from your silver jewelry. Take extreme car not to remove antique style finishes during polishing. The best way to prevent tarnish is to wear your silver jewelry and regular cleanings.

What do the markings on my jewelry indicate?

Many types of jewelry are on the market. Many silver plated or alloys may include silver. For genuine sterling silver look for the following markings which are generally stamped on all fine sterling silver jewelry.

  • Ster
  • Sterling Silver
  • Sterling
  • .925

What does .925 mean?

Fine Silver or Pure Silver is very soft and malleable. Sterling Silver jewelry usually consists of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other alloys in order to improve strength and durability. Most sterling silver includes copper which improves the jewelry’s hardness without affecting sterling’s shine and finish.

  1. I Liked your article about how to care for sterling silver jewelry. I have had good luck over the years with spraying glass cleaner on a standard polishing cloth and then just buffing the silver jewelry pieces.
