An anti tarnish silver polishing cloth is the perfect solution for polishing silver jewellery and ensuring your jewellery won't tarnish.
You might wonder: is sterling silver real silver? The answer is yes. Sterling silver is an alloyed form of silver which is much more suitable to use in jewellery and other metalwork.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. In this form the metal is beautiful and suffers from minimal tarnish, but it’s generally too soft and malleable for many uses, including making most jewellery.
Silver is often used to celebrate milestones, achievements, celebrations and ceremonies, as well as for its beautiful ornamental value.
But how much do you really know about silver? What is sterling silver? Why does silver tarnish and how can you clean it? How is silver different from gold?
As we’ve been stocking sterling silver findings and chains for many years, we’re here to give you the lowdown.
Sterling silver jewellery is an excellent, high quality choice in most circumstances but it is as important as ever to use an anti tarnish silver polishing cloth to maintain its shine. The metal will not rust or perish, plus if you look after your jewellery it will look great well into the future. You should even be able to pass your silver jewellery on to future generations.
The softness of even sterling silver can make it unsuited to using with very expensive gemstone settings. Gold or platinum are the metals most often used in this situation as they are harder and the settings are less likely to be damaged. Something so simple like an anti tarnish silver polishing cloth should be your go to when cleaning silver.
Because silver is soft you should take a bit more care with cleaning it. Never use harsh cleansers such as baking soda or toothpaste as they will remove some of the metal over time.
