KEEPING SILVER JEWELRY FROM TARNISHING
We all are keeping a few selections of our gorgeous silver jewelry from tarnishing. Mainly because most of us opt for a jewelry box full of on-trend silver jewelry in fun shapes and sizes because silver is the most popular of the jewelry metals.
My favorite pieces are my ever-growing collection of Disneyland Resort Christmas jewelry! I pick out at least one sterling silver piece during my annual holiday visits to the park. However, one of the downfalls of buying silver jewelry is keeping it from tarnishing.
I’m sure that you have discovered with your favorite jewelry collecting experience that most metals contain bits of copper or nickel that react terribly to oxygen. Sometimes even lower grade counts of silver can oxidize and even aggravate an irritation when it meets your skin. So, all that fading and tarnishing is just a simple science fact of the metal reacting to the air and to the PH of your skin.
The good news is that there are all types of simple tricks that prevent silver jewelry from tarnishing.
Since air swirling all around us is what makes metal tarnish the fastest, try placing your favorite pieces in the Hagerty Forever New Silver Jewelry Bags to prevent everyday oxidization. I started using these bags in January of 2019 and I didn’t have to use a jewelry cloth to my silver rings when I wore them during the summer.
It’s also a good idea to keep the anti-tarnish paper that comes with your jewelry purchase to use with your storage. Even better, hit up Walmart, Amazon, or Fire Mountain Gems to buy a few sheets of anti-tarnish paper to line the inside of your jewelry box.
Another way to keep your silver jewelry from tarnishing is to avoid wearing it while you are doing laundry, dishes, swimming, showering, spraying perfume, applying lotion, or relaxing at the spa.
