Silver jewellery is a popular choice for people of all ages, and it can be a great way to show off your personal style. However, silver jewellery can often corrode and discolour, which can be frustrating and unsightly. Here are a few tips on how to stop your silver jewellery from corroding and discolouring.
To prevent silver jewellery from corroding, it is important to keep it clean and dry. tarnish-preventive sprays or dip can be used. When not wearing your silver jewellery, store it in a dry, airtight container. It is also important to avoid exposing your silver jewellery to chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia.
If your silver jewellery does become tarnished, you can clean it with a soft cloth and a mild detergent. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the surface of your silver jewellery.
You can also use a commercial silver polish or dip, but be sure to follow the instructions carefully so that you do not damage your silver jewellery. Finally, rinse your silver jewellery thoroughly with clean water and dry it with a soft cloth.
But whilst all of these methods will prevent your jewellery from regularly tarnishing, nothing will stop the item becoming discoloured better than wearing it all the time, as the natural oils within your skin will prevent the tarnishing from taking hold.
Here are a few tips on how you can wear your favourite jewellery every day without your style looking the same:
- Alternate the layering of certain pieces to ensure that your style is evenly rotated.
- Make sure that you regularly mix metal types of your favourite pieces with what your wearing to add light and shade to your style and add daily contrast.
- Mix in pieces that benefit from semi-precious gemstones (like our NEW Silver & Gemstone Anklets) as they will inject a burst of colour to pieces that you wear daily.
- Ensure that your wristwear, neckwear and ear accessories follow a daily theme to give your style natural progression.
Following these easy steps will ensure you keep looking at your best and rotate your style and it will also ensure (along with regular cleaning and care) that all of your jewellery stays looking at it’s best.
