Genuine silver tarnishes, especially when exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers.
For Optimum Care
Cleaning Gold Plated Silver
Clean the gold plated item with soft cotton cloth and warm water. Use a tiny drop of liquid soap if needed. Do not use a jewellery cloth as it usually contains chemical that will scrub off the surface.
Polishing Plain Silver
Once cleaned and polished, silver must be kept dry and properly stored in their individual cases. Our Holstad & Co. jewellery boxes and bags will protect it from abrasion and offer a degree of tarnish prevention.
If the climate is humid, place a small packet of demoisturizing crystals (e.g., silica gel) inside the box or bag.
