Silver pendant care

Silver jewelry is stunning; your collection of silver pendants is probably the focal point of your jewelry assortment. If you love to collect silver jewelry and wear a different sterling silver necklace every day, then you’ll want to protect your jewelry investments by taking excellent care of your silver pendants. Silver jewelry is not high-maintenance, but it does require some special jewelry care that other pieces may not. Check out for the best deal of holiday sales online.

Cleaning is an important part of jewelry care. Sterling silver jewelry needs to be cleaned more thoroughly and more often than jewelry made of gold, platinum, titanium, tungsten and stainless steel. Invest in a high-quality silver cleaning solution if you have a large assortment of silver pendants. These cleaning solutions and polishes are affordable and easy to use. Most of them come in a cream or a paste. Using a soft cloth, apply a generous amount of the solution and carefully polish the pendant. Avoid getting the cleaning solution on any gemstones. You can wipe most of the polish off the piece with a clean cloth, though you may want to rinse the silver pendant in warm, soapy water to remove all of the cleaning solution. Dry the silver pendant thoroughly before storing it. If you have a collection of intricate silver pendants, invest in a small set of cleaning brushes to make the job easier.

High-quality, attentive jewelry storage is the first step in preserving your silver necklaces. A fabric-lined jewelry box is a great place to keep pendants. Give each pendant its own slot, drawer or compartment to keep each piece from getting scratched or lost. Necklace stands and boards are also good jewelry storage options. These pieces have hooks where you can hang necklaces. This option allows you to store silver pendants on the chains and cords that you wear them on, making it easy to take them off and put them on. Choose the jewelry storage options that best fit your lifestyle to make caring for silver necklaces easy.

You can keep your silver pendants in good condition by removing them before going to the gym or working in the yard. Chlorine can discolor some silver jewelry, so always remove silver pendants before getting into the swimming pool.
