Our customers often ask us this question: "How to clean silver jewelry?"
Don't worry if your silver jewelry tarnished. Silver is a precious metal that naturally blackens on contact with air. This is a completely normal oxidation phenomenon. There are also skins that accentuate this process. Dishwashing or cleaning products, perfume, chlorine from the swimming pool… can cause metal to blacken, especially for rings, bracelets, chains and earrings.
So do not question the quality of your jewelry.
Here are some tips to make your silver jewelry shine. They are all different, well known and they work ...
Baking soda: it's a household product that is on the rise. And for good reason: it is economical, easy to use and harmless to the environment. It is an abrasive that is both gentle and powerful and is present on all fronts: personal hygiene, cleaning the house ... Wet a toothbrush. Sprinkle with baking soda. Gently rub your silver jewelry, rinse it with clean water and wipe it dry with a soft cloth; ideally a chamois, but a fine cotton will do very well
Lemon: same process: you gently rub your silver jewelry with a toothbrush, this time soaked in lemon juice. You rinse with clean water and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
White vinegar: this time, you soak your silver jewelry in a glass filled with white household vinegar for about 2 hours. You rinse them with water and then wipe them dry.
Beer: same operation; soak the jewelry overnight in a bowl filled with beer. The next day, rinse them and dry them with a cloth.
Toothpaste: It sounds very surprising, but it is very effective. A small dose of toothpaste on your toothbrush and you gently rub your jewelry. Rinse thoroughly under cold water. Wipe off with a cloth or chamois leather.
With ash: you brush your silver jewelry with ash. You rinse them with water and dry them under the same conditions.
Breadcrumbs: to make a silver jewel shine, it must be rubbed with breadcrumbs; it's an old grandma's trick that's proven to work.
Warning ! If your jewelry contains stones, do not rub too hard to avoid damaging them and reduce the soaking time, even if it means repeating the operation.
It's your turn…
