How to retain your sterling silver jewelry?
Silver needs cleaning because it tends to tarnish.
As a jewelry designer, I have sterling silver cleaning solutions, or a sterling silver cleaning cloth for when sterling silver jewelry needs to be cleaned. However, you do not need to have these in order to keep your sterling silver jewelry clean.
Here are a couple of methods that I find useful:
*Silver jewelry can be easily cleaned with regular toothpaste (non-bleaching toothpaste). Use a toothbrush to scrub the jewelry, and then soak for a few minutes in a bowl with warm water. Afterwards, rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft towel.
Place*aluminum foil inside a bowl, place your jewelry directly on the foil, and add a teaspoon of baking soda. Pour a small amount of boiling water, soak for a few minutes, and then rinse and dry thoroughly with a soft towel.
Personally, I love working with sterling silver. I can create high quality jewelry at an affordable price. Additionally, sterling silver jewelry is great for wearing everyday, and fits casual styled fashion as well as elegant. A lot of women like to wear their silver jewelry all the time. A great example is the sterling silver initial necklace.
Most of all, sterling silver is very durable. You can wear sterling silver while showering or when sleeping, and if it needs cleaning in order to keep it nice and shiny, I'm sure you'll find the methods listed above very useful.
