Sterling silver will tarnish when exposed to the air. Tarnish is the result of the copper component of sterling silver reacting with sulphur in the air. Oxidation occurs and this appears as tarnish. Storing your sterling silver in an airtight container will slow this process.
A jeweler’s polishing cloth may be used to clean tarnished sterling silver. Another effective method of removing tarnish is to gently scrub your sterling silver jewelry with a soft bristled toothbrush and toothpaste while rinsing the jewelry under warm water. Dry the piece of jewelry and continue to enjoy wearing your handcrafted sterling silver jewelry from Finely Found Designs.
