What is silver tarnish and how can you keep your silver jewellery sparkly?

Have you ever wondered why your jewellery goes dull and discoloured? Silver tarnish might be to blame.

Sterling Silver Tarnish is a natural process caused when silver jewellery comes into contact with oxygen and moisture. Tarnish shows as a black, brown or grey colour which appears over time.

In order to minimise tarnish:

  • Wear your jewellery regularly.

  • Apply lotions/perfume before your jewellery.

  • Keep away from moisture.

  • Remove before entering water or washing your hands.

  • Remove rings before using hand sanitiser.

  • Remove jewellery when sleeping.

  • When not in use, store in box or pouch.

  • Clean with a jewellery cloth or a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water.
