How to take care of silver
There are many tips on how to take care of silver so it doesn't become dark, but if we would follow all the recommendations about everything that should be avoided, we could not wear our favorite jewelry everyday.
As you may already know, some of the common tips are: avoiding the contact of silver with sweat, perfumes or creams, protecting the jewelry from seawater and from corrosive agents (detergents, dishwashers, disinfectants...) plus a long list of other stuff we actually do every day.
So taking into account that we want to enjoy our silver jewelry, we leave you here a little guide of tips that we usually follow. You will see how easy and effective they are!
Wear your jewelry often
Use your jewelry and do not pay too much attention to what you “should avoid”: Take a shower, bathe in the sea, put on some perfume and do sports if you like to. If the silver does get dark, you'll just clean it up!
However, if you have to take on weight with your hands on a daily basis, we do advise you to remove your rings, so as not to deform them.
When you clean, you're cleaning your jewelry too
When you wash your hands with soap you make the silver clean and shiny too.
When you are cleaning, the jewelry gets cleaned too, but there are some corrosive products like bleach that are not recommended to be used with the jewelry on. It is better to take off your jewelry while using it. This way you will avoid a possible reaction and you will also avoid the silver turning black.
Don't be afraid if your silver gets black
When jewelry is exposed to some products, it can become dark. Or sometimes it is just the ph of our skin which makes the jewelry lose its shine. But still, do not be afraid, as silver can be cleaned.
