Taking Care Of Your 925 Sterling Silver Jewellery
Tarnish occurs as a result of silver reacting with Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) and Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) in the air.
The speed at which your sterling silver will tarnish depends on many things eg. the area that you live (humidity, near pollution, volcanoes etc.), the pH levels of your skin, chemicals you are exposed to, the type of water in your
area (eg. bore water will add to tarnish), how your silver is stored and even the food you eat!
Copper, which is often used as an alloy in 925 sterling silver, reacts with oxygen too and produces its own tarnish, contributing to the affect.
The only practical solution is to learn which substances accelerate tarnish and to try and limit the exposure your silver jewellery has to them.
Sterling silver should avoid contact with the following:
- Hair dyes
- Swimming (chlorinated and salt water)
- Exercise (sweating)
- Cigarette smoke
- Some paints
- Detergents containing phosphates
- Body lotions, perfumes, hair sprays, sunscreens, oils
- Foods including onion, egg yolk, mustard, salt, vinegar, salad dressings and olives
Things like turpentine, nail polish remover (containing acetone), bleach, ammonia and alcohol will not only breakdown the silver in your jewellery, possibly damaging it beyond repair, they may also cause pitting to your gemstones.
STORING YOUR SILVER JEWELLERY
Sterling silver is best stored in a cool, dry place (heat and moisture speed up the tarnishing process); preferably in acid-free tissue (not regular tissue paper) or a tarnish resistant cloth. Wrapping pieces separately in a moisture free
plastic bag will delay tarnish but make sure the silver does not directly touch the bag.
