Pro-Tip: Prevent Tarnishing Before it Happens!

And last but not least – prevention! The more you do to prevent your silver jewelry from tarnishing, the less frequently you’ll have to clean.

Tips to prevent your silver jewelry from tarnishing:

  • Put jewelry on last when you’re getting ready, after perfume and makeup, to prevent oils from sticking to and oxidizing your silver. Remove your jewelry before anything else at the end of the day.
  • Treat your jewelry well! You can slow down tarnishing, by lightly cleaning or polishing your silver jewelry after every wear with a polishing cloth or cleaning solution.
  • Store each piece of your silver jewelry in its own pouch in a cool, dry spot. You can even put a piece of chalk in the bag to help remove moisture from the air.
  • Wear your silver! Friction actually slows down tarnishing so the more you wear your jewelry, the more it’ll shine.
