Caring and Cleaning Silver Cufflinks

 

We use 925 Sterling Silver for our cufflinks and pendants. Silver is a soft metal that will naturally mark when in contact with hard surfaces and is liable to tarnish when in contact with chemicals; therefore, silver jewellery requires a little care.

 

 

Tarnishing

 

Tarnishing develops as a chemical reaction but causes no actual harm to the silver and the most common source is through air (especially during the warmer months) and contact with substances such as perfume, water or lotions.

 

 

Cleaning

 

Tarnished silver can be easily resolved at home by using a silver polish cloth.

 

First, polish the surface of the silver with the inner side of a dry microfibre silver cloth to add the polishing agent and then, buff the piece again with the outer cloth to give a lovely shine.

 

 

Storing

 

Sterling silver jewellery is best stored in an individual box or anti-tarnishing bags made from mylar or polyethene (avoid bags made from polyvinyl as they contain sulphur compounds). Silver jewellery should not be touching other jewellery and should never be rested on metal when not being worn.
