Shimmer and Shine: The Ultimate Guide to taking care of your Silver
Hey there our wonderful Treaty Tribe! If you're anything like us here at Treaty you probably adore silver jewellery for its timeless elegance and captivating charm.
Whether it's a chunky statement necklace, a glimmering ring or an everyday wear bangle, silver can instantly elevate any outfit and leaving you feeling like a million dollars! However just like any precious possession, your silver jewels need a little TLC to stay in top-notch condition. Fear not! Our Treaty experts are here to tell you how to keep your silver shining like its brand new.
1. Regular Check-Ups - Give your Jewels Some Love
First things first, show some love to your silver beauties by regularly inspecting them. Look for any signs of tarnish, scratches or loose stones. If you notice anything amiss take action immediately. The earlier you catch any issues, the easier they are to fi. A quick visual check every now and then will keep your treasures twinkling without a hitch.
2. Give your Jewellery a Luxurious Bath
Ready to give your jewellery a little pampering session? Fill a bowl with warm, soapy water (a mild, fragrance free soap is best) and let our silver pieces take a dip. Gently rub away any dirt or grime with a cloth or soft toothbrush - its like a spa day for your jewels! Once done, rinse them thoroughly with clean water, and dry them with a soft cloth. Voila! Your silver will thank you by dazzling with newfound brilliance!
3. A Soft Touch for Fine Silver
For all the fine silver aficionados out there, polishing cloths are your new BFFs. These magic pieces of fabric are specifically designed to add some extra sparkle to your precious jewels. Simply rub the cloth gently over your silver pieces, and watch them regain their original glimmer. Avoid paper towels or tissues, though - they might scratch your silver jewellery.
4. Keep the Sea Adventures at Bay
Ahoy, there beach lovers! While frolicking in the waves can be pure bliss, your silver jewellery may not be as thrilled about the salty sea breeze. Saltwater and silver aren't the best of buddies, so it's best to leave your precious pieces behind when you head for the beach. Your jewels will appreciate the gesture and repay you by maintaining their exquisite shine.
5. Scent first, Shimmer Second
Picture this: you're getting ready for a night out, and you want to apply that all important fragrance, but make sure you apply that perfume before slipping on your silver jewellery. Cosmetics, lotions and perfumes can contain chemicals that speed up the tarnishing process. By putting your scent on before your silver, you'll let your jewels breathe easy and look stunning all night long.
6. Resting in Style - The Jewellery Box Hideout
When it's time for your silver beauties to catch some Zs make sure they have a cosy spot to rest. Store your jewellery in a jewellery box or the gift box provided when you bought them. These boxes protect your silver from free-flowing air, which can accelerate tarnishing. Each time you open that box your silver will thank you by shining just as brilliantly as the day you got it!
With these sparkling tips up your sleeve, you're all set to keep your silver jewellery looking fabulous. Remember, a little love goes a long way, and your silver will be the envy of all! So, go ahead and rock that silver bling, and let it light up your world with its breathtaking allure.
Shine on, you silver stars!
