Will My Silver Jewellery Tarnish? Here's What You Need to Know

Hello silver jewellery lover! We know how much you adore your sterling silver jewellery pieces, and we're here to shed some light on a common concern: tarnishing. At Inesce, our jewellery is hand-crafted with care using 925 Sterling Silver, which means it has the potential to develop a little patina over time. But fret not! We've got you covered with some valuable tips to keep your silver shining bright for years to come. Let's dive in!


1. Embrace Regular Cleaning:

To keep your sterling silver jewellery looking its best, regular cleaning is key. We recommend using a soft polishing cloth to gently remove any tarnish that may have accumulated. A quick buffing session now and then will restore its natural luster, making your pieces dazzle like new. Remember, a little TLC goes a long way!

2. Keep It Dry and Protected:

Moisture is the arch-nemesis of silver tarnish. Avoid exposing your jewellery to excessive humidity or prolonged contact with water, as it can expedite the tarnishing process. Before swimming, showering, or engaging in any water-related activities, it's best to remove your silver pieces and keep them safely stored in a dry place. Additionally, protect your jewellery from harsh chemicals found in household cleaning agents, perfumes, and lotions to maintain its pristine beauty.

3. Store with Love:

Proper storage can make a world of difference in preventing tarnish. When you're not wearing your silver jewellery, store it in a cool, dry place, ideally in an airtight bag or a lined jewellery box. This helps minimize exposure to air and moisture, reducing the chances of tarnishing. If you have multiple pieces, consider keeping them separate or using anti-tarnish strips or pouches for added protection.

Inesce's Promise:

At Inesce, we take pride in our handcrafted sterling silver jewellery. While tarnishing is a natural characteristic of this precious metal, we strive to provide you with timeless pieces that will stand the test of time. Our commitment to quality ensures that you can enjoy your jewellery for years to come, with its beauty and significance intact.

So, to answer the burning question, yes, your silver jewellery may tarnish over time. But fear not! With a little extra care and attention, you can keep your Inesce pieces shining brilliantly. Remember to clean them regularly, keep them dry and protected, and store them with love. By following these simple tips, you'll ensure that your sterling silver jewellery remains a reflection of your unique spirit.
