When buying silver jewelry, make sure there are no visible blemishes or imperfections on the piece. Check to make certain that fasteners, clasps and catches work properly and are secure. Check pin backs and earring posts for strength and durability. Lay silver chains flat to make certain their links don’t kink or bend.
Remember! When making a silver purchase, always look for the mark 925, .925 or Sterling Silver, the mark is proof that the silver piece you are buying is 92.5% pure, rather than containing a lower percentage of silver, being an imitation made with other alloys or being plated with only a thin layer of silver. Having a lower silver content might cause your silver jewelry to darken even with the slightest exposure to humidity. If the content of silver is higher than 92.5%, the piece might be too soft and won’t stand up to everyday wear.
How to Care Silver jewelry?
Following these few simple tips will help you preserve your silver jewelry’s original luster.
Store your silver in a cool, dry place, to avoid oxidation. Try not to overexpose your silver jewelry to artificial light or sunlight.
Store your silver jewelry in a tarnish-proof cloth, if a soft pouch is available, even better. Try and store each item individually. Do not store silver loose in drawers, as scratches will occur if you toss your jewelry into a compartment or allow pieces to rub against each other.
If a piece of silver jewelry becomes tarnished and chances are it will happen no matter how careful you are, use a paste, liquid polish or a treated polishing cloth to restore its original luster.
