Storing Sterling Silver Jewellery

Oxygen in the air will tarnish Sterling Silver, so properly storing your jewellery will help minimize that oxidation. Here are some storage tips:

Store pieces separately
Store them in an airtight bag
Place a packet of silica in the storage bag

Wearing your Sterling Silver jewellery regularly can actually help prevent tarnishing since the oils from your body have a cleaning effect. However, some activities can accelerate tarnishing. You should remove your Sterling Silver jewellery before doing any of the following:

  • Using household cleaning supplies.
  • Sunbathing
  • Swimming
  • Spraying Hairspray
  • Putting on Lotion and Makeup


Polishing Sterling Silver is typically the best way to clean your Sterling Silver jewellery.

Use a special jewellery polishing cloth to avoid scratching.
