Cleaning .925 Silver Jewelry
Cleaning .925 Silver Jewelry: |
TheDazzleDames.com doesn’t advise using chemical solutions or "silver dips" for cleaning your Silver Jewelry. Most likely they’ll leave a chemical residue which will create pits in the silver jewelry causing it to darken, age and generally deteriorate faster. TheDazzleDames.com suggests proactive protective care by storing your jewelry in a closed, light proof box or sealable plastic bag placed within a secure drawer. All silver will tarnish
when left out exposed to air. Storing in a plastic bag will help keep it from tarnishing.
TheDazzleDames.com suggests several methods to clean designer inspired silver jewelry and even our other silver, gemstone and fashion jewelry:
We at TheDazzleDames.com suggest a soft sterling silver jewelry polishing cloth:
For silver jewelry, a quality silver polishing cloth available at most silver jewelry retailers as well as other stores and of course, online. Don't worry, if the cloth becomes stained with oxidation residue from the silver jewelry, it can still be used for many, many cleanings of your favorite sterling silver gemstone jewelry pieces. This cloth contains silver jewelry cleaning compounds that will give a lasting luster to your designer inspired silver jewelry and silver
gemstone jewelry. Use the sterling silver jewelry polishing cloth immediately upon seeing that your silver jewelry appears dull. If you would like TheDazzleDames.com to start carrying these silver jewelry polishing cloths on our site, please let us know by sending an email.

Of course, while wearing your Pearl jewelry, it picks up oils during contact with your skin so it’s a good practice to clean them after wearing. Simply wipe them with a slightly damp cloth after wearing. If you feel they merit a better cleaning, you can soak them for a few minutes in a solution of ¼ teaspoon liquid soap to 2 cups lukewarm water. Remember to use a gentle soap like Ivory. Do not use an antibacterial soap. Remove them from the solution and rinse very well. Pat the pearl jewelry dry with a paper towel. In addition, there are professional tarnish removers made for sterling silver and pearl jewelry. These are safe for
pearls and sterling silver bracelets and necklaces etc.
