How to Care for Sterling Silver Jewelry

There aren’t a lot of things that could ruin jewelry more than oxidation, tarnishing, and other general signs of aging. Sterling silver, like many other alloyed metals, is not exempt from this rule. Over time, wholesale sterling silver rings can lose their lustre and develop unsightly discolorations. But fortunately, there are a couple of easy fixes to make sure that your exquisite pieces stay in tip top shape. Here are some tips to help you and your customers better care for sterling silver:

Sterling_Sliver_Care_SidneyImports1

Know your silver

As a versatile material, sterling silver is widely available and used in many different applications. However, not all sterling silver is made equal, and so one must know the type used to make sure that it is appropriately cared for. Most sterling silver jewelry is marked .925, which means that it is composed of 92.5% pure silver combined with other materials. This type is very durable but prone to tarnishing, and so extra care must be given to make sure it lasts.

Wear it often, and wear it well

Wearing your sterling silver jewelry exposes it to the skin’s natural oils, which help keep them shiny. However, remember to remove them when doing household chores, particularly those involving washing as water may create rust and discoloration. And of course, when storing your jewelry, make sure to keep them in a cool, dry place away from the sun, as excessive heat exposure also accelerates tarnishing.

Give it some good old TLC – tender loving cleaning

Sterling silver is very durable but being constantly exposed to the elements will definitely take a toll on its appearance. To abate this, cleaning your sterling silver jewelry is recommended. It’s good to note that most of the stuff you need to keep your jewelry in shape is likely already available at home, namely mild soap, water, and baking soda. A paste made of baking soda and water works for regular cleaning, while pieces showing heavier wear and tarnish can be treated with baking soda and white vinegar.

Like any other jewelry, buying sterling silver is also an investment. With these easy tips, you can be sure to keep your accessories looking great for a long, long time.

Be Simply Stunning with Minimalist Sterling Silver Rings

If there is one trend that has gotten really big in 2019, it would be, ironically, the trend of going small. Thanks to Marie Kondo’s very popular Netflix special, minimalism has become the catchphrase that dominates not just our conversations, but our overall psyche. Minimalism could refer to anything between getting rid of clutter in your living quarters, streamlining your wardrobe, or being more mindful about buying and consuming.

As with a lot of big trends, minimalism has also influenced fashion and design. Sticking to the basics – essentials that you could use again and again – lies at the very heart of minimalist fashion. And just because you’re trying to downsize doesn’t mean that you can no longer accessorize! Here are some wholesale sterling silver rings that are sure to tell everyone that less is definitely more:

Show a bit of your personality even when going minimalist when you go for a sterling silver band featuring your birthstone. November celebrants are sure to appreciate this ring with a blue topaz as its centerpiece.
