Did you receive a nice piece of jewelry over the holidays? If it was a piece of silver jewelry—whether it was a necklace, bracelet, or even a watch—then watch out; as a natural material, silver reacts with its environment (particularly with chemicals in the air), which can result in your silver becoming tarnished.
One common misconception is that your silver jewelry is defective if it becomes tarnished, which is not the case at all. In fact, it actually proves that your silver is of a good quality.
In order to prevent your silver jewelry from tarnishing, there are a few products which you can try out that will help to keep your silver sparkling like new. Here are a few options you have:
Anti tarnish strips are a great solution for your silver jewelry. These strips can be placed in a box along with your silver in order to preserve their quality. These strips neutralize the gases that can cause unsightly tarnish. Plus, they are highly convenient and can be cut into selected strip sizes.
Anti-tarnish velveteen pouches can be used up to five years after purchase to preserve both silver and gold. The pouches can prevent the damaging effects of both tarnish and oxidation. In fact, they are safe for all metals and gems. They can be purchased in bulk if desired.
For another alternative to prevente tarnish, anti-tarnish boxes work well. These provide a nice and convenient way to store your silver while keeping them protected. Additionally, these boxes can provide twenty years of protection.
If you are concerned with preserving the quality of your silver jewelry, then any of the above products are excellent choices.
