Cleaning Your Sterling Silver Jewellery
Sterling silver is a beautiful and durable metal that is made for everyday wear. Following a few basic use and care guidelines will ensure that your sterling silver items give you a lifetime of enjoyment. Please keep in mind that detergents and lotions can slowly erode the finish off gemstones and cause stones to become dull.
Copper, which is often used as an alloy in 925 sterling silver, reacts with oxygen too and produces its own tarnish, contributing ... the silver in your jewellery, possibly damaging it beyond repair, they may also cause pitting to your gemstones. ... Silver is a soft metal, so when cleaning your silver, you must be sure to take care.
Many of the sterling silver cleaners on the market today should not come in contact with most gemstones. If the stone is porous, the cleaner may be absorbed by stone and impact its appearance immediately. Even if the stone is not porous, the cleaner can dull the finish of the stone over time.
