Jewelry maintenance


How do I keep my silver jewelry beautiful?

Silver jewelry often shines beautifully when you buy it, but can then turn brown or even black. This is because silver oxidizes due to the sulfur present in the air. You can prevent this by keeping your jewelry in a closed box or bag when you are not wearing it.

How do I get my silver jewelry clean again?

If your jewelry is discolored, polish it with an impregnated silver polishing cloth. Do not wash this cloth, the blacker it is, the better it works.

You can also wash your silver jewelry in a mild soap solution. Gently rubbing with your hand or a soft brush is sufficient. All other methods can damage your jewelry, so be careful when using them.

Stainless steel

What are the advantages of stainless steel jewelry.

Stainless steel or stainless steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, among other things. The alloy used for jewelry is 316L quality. This is also called surgical steel. The great advantage of this material is that it is hypoallergenic. It does not discolour, does not transfer to your skin and therefore does not cause an allergic reaction. In addition, it is stronger than silver, it shines more and scratches less quickly.

Rust on stainless steel?

However, it is not the case that stainless steel cannot oxidize (rust). This happens when it comes into contact with chlorine or ordinary steel. So take off your stainless steel jewelry when you go swimming. Allow sunscreen to soak in before wearing a stainless steel jewelry wheel. And keep in mind that perfume can also influence the color of your jewelry. If you take this into account, you will enjoy your stainless steel jewelry for a long time.
