In this post I will be sharing my knowledge on how to clean your Sterling silver Jewelry. I will also be sharing some general information regarding sterling silver jewelry. I hope you find this article helpful in keeping your sterling silver jewelry clean and fabulous!
First a little bit of info about Sterling silver.
Pure silver, also called fine silver, is relatively soft, very malleable, and easily damaged. Pure silver is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The most popular of these alloys is sterling silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Although any metal can make up the 7.5 percent non-silver portion of sterling, centuries of experimentation have shown copper to be its best companion, improving the metal’s hardness and durability without affecting its beautiful colour. The small amount of copper added to sterling has very little effect on the metal’s value. Instead, the price of the sterling silver jewelry is affected by the labour involved in making the item, the skill of the craftsperson, and the detail of the design.

The #1 cleaning solution I recommend is Hagerty silver cleaner, it is one of the best cleaners I have used hands down!
To bring up the most shine in your sterling silver jewellery I always recommend a polishing cloth. Such as the one in the image below. It makes huge difference as far as I’m concerned. Most polishing clothes are less than ten dollars so it is a relatively cheap investment.

Its a good idea to invest in a jewelry box to store your sterling silver jewelry especially if there are gemstones in your jewelry. Purchasing a good jewelry box will help minimize scratches and other damage. I really like the jewelry box below and totally recommend it. I love the tiny compartments and ring holders and love that it also holds your necklaces. The colour is so fabulous and the fabric is super soft! don’t you think?
