Silver jewelry is a favorite accessory of all women. But if we do not take care of them properly, they can show dull spots or discoloration, in the long run. Silver reacts with its environment and the various chemicals it comes in contact with and this is normal. It does not always mean that the silver is not of good quality. To be sure that your silver jewelry will always look new, let learn some ways to care for them.
The oiliness of our skin helps our silver jewelry to retain its shine.
Keep them away from household chemicals, perfumes, lotions, hairsprays, sunscreens, etc. Avoid wearing them when doing chores at home, but also when going for a swim in the sea and pool. Wear the latter when you are about to go out, so that they do not come into contact with cosmetic products.
