Sterling Silver Lockets UK – Caring For Sterling Silver

Sterling silver lockets UK wide make stunning jewellery pieces. Featuring gorgeous and often meaningful charms, is there any piece of jewellery as special as a sterling silver locket? We think not! This is why it is so important to care for your sterling silver jewellery properly. Read on for some top tips.

In most cases, all you need to do is polish your sterling silver jewellery. If the tarnishing isn’t too severe, this should suffice. You need to use a special silver cloth to polish your locket, as the metal is soft and can easily scratch. Do not use tissues or paper towels, as they have fibres in them that can cause scratches. When polishing your jewellery, use long back and forth motions, which mirror the silver’s grain. You should not rub in circles because this can lead to the magnification of any tiny scratches. If your locket becomes heavily tarnished, you may need something a bit more substantial than polishing. There are a lot of commercial silver cleaning products on the market. However, a lot of them can cause damage, as they remove the valuable patina and anti-tarnish coating. They may provide a short-term solution, but your locket will only become more tarnished in the long run. Instead, you should consider a homemade solution, or you can, of course, take your locket to a professional jewellery cleaner. Popular homemade solutions include the likes of white vinegar and baking soda, olive oil and lemon juice, baking soda and water, and soap and water.
