For starters, just wear it! Yep. The best way to lessen the chances for tarnish is to wear your jewelry. The more you wear it, the happier it is. Your body’s natural body oils will keep your silver and bronze jewelry looking clean and fresh.
We know you’re busy living life, and sometimes you forget to take it off or rush out the door without even putting it on. We get it! Life happens, and your jewelry may darken or get dull over time. Do. Not. Stress. This darkening is natural oxidation, and it’s easy to remove with just a few easy steps:
Not just for your iced tea, using a slice of lemon will do the trick. Simply rub the lemon slice over your piece, rinse with water and air dry, or use a soft cloth. Lemons are magical!
Baking soda works like a boss. Make a paste with baking soda, lemon and water. Grab a clean toothbrush or other soft-bristled brush and apply your homemade paste to the piece until it returns to its original bright color. Rinse with water and dry. Anytime you use a brush on a necklace, take extra care with the chain. For sterling silver, you can also use toothpaste instead of baking soda paste.
This method works great on sterling silver, but only for pieces that don’t have any stones. You’ll need aluminum foil, baking soda, a soft-bristled brush, extremely hot water and a towel:
If you’re traveling and want a quick and easy way to clean your jewelry, tuck a treated polishing cloth in your bag. These cloths have safe jewelry cleaning chemicals embedded in them already. Plus, they’re portable and won’t scratch your pieces. They work great on both silver and bronze.
If your jewelry incorporates a dark patina as part of the design, it’s best to use a treated polishing cloth instead of the baking soda paste to protect the blackened accents and details. Likewise, all semi-precious and precious stones should be handled with care. A treated polishing cloth is the safest cleaning method.
The very best thing you can do is to wear your jewelry! It’s true! Your natural body oils will keep your pieces shiny. But we know, sometimes you do need to take it off, so follow these guidelines to keep your jewelry fresh:
