5 Tips For Cleaning Sterling Silver Jewel

Keep your jewelry in a dry, cool location. Humidity will cause your jewelry to tarnish faster. By keeping your sterling silver jewelry in a dry, cool area, you can avoid having to clean it as often.

Polish jewelry often with a soft cloth. The simple act of rubbing your sterling silver jewelry with a soft cloth is enough to keep it looking great. If you find that you are having trouble getting jewelry clean, use a chemically treated cloth.

Try using a sterling silver dip for severely tarnished pieces. When using one of these dips, you should dip your jewelry and remove it immediately. Rinse the piece in clean water and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid leaving jewelry in the dip for any extended period of time because this can damage your jewelry.

Use tarnish shield sparingly. If you choose to use a tarnish shield, use it sparingly. There are several things that can go wrong when using a tarnish shield, so they should only be used as a last resort.

Use baking soda to polish your jewelry. If you want to clean your jewelry with an item that you probably already have at home, you can try using baking soda. Put a small amount of baking soda on a toothbrush and use the brush to scrub away any tarnish that has accumulated.

Every September 15th Mexicans commemorate the war of Independence, which was actually initiated in the small town of Dolores in Guanajuato Mexico on September 16, 1810.

On that day Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a Catholic priest from a wealthy family of Mexican-born Spaniards or criollos, rallied his parishioners to rise up in arms.

It’s hard not to be crazy about sterling silver jewelry. Between its luster, its brilliance, and its versatility, it’s easy to see why silver is one of the most popular materials for jewelry.

Still, many of us find ourselves neglecting all the beautiful silver pieces in our jewelry boxes for one simple, annoying reason: tarnish. When oxygen or sulfur come in contact with silver, they chemically bond to its surface and cause the silver to appear dirty or discolored. Who wants that?

Fortunately, caring for silver and reducing tarnish is as simple as doing the dishes. All you need is to arm yourself with a few facts about the metal and a few tips and tricks for care and cleaning. With this ultimate guide, you’ll leave ready to start wearing your fabulous silver again with all its shine!

there is also something indescribably surreal or dreamlike about Mexico. I am not quite sure what it is. Perhaps it is the diversity that comes from the inheritance of two cultures, the indigenous and the Spanish that live together, side by side. It is an intoxicating mix, and is evident in its food, music, handicrafts and language.

Can I wear my Taxco silver jewelry every day?

Yes! We sell jewelry that ranges from sleek simplicity to dramatic sculptural pieces. While some of our more theatrical jewelry lends itself to special occasions, many of our pieces will add beauty and a timeless elegance to your everyday wardrobe. Silver jewelry tarnishes easily but with simple cleaning after every use, you will protect your jewelry (and skin) from any discoloration and you will find that the jewelry develops a rich patina that adds a warm and textured depth to the jewelry.

Why don’t we sell “pure silver”?

Pure silver is very soft and jewelry made from 100% silver would be easily scratched and damaged. To that end, silver is mixed with other metals to make it stronger and more durable. Copper is the most common metal used to make the silver harder but is also what contributes to silver’s reputation for tarnishing easily. This tarnish, if properly cultivated, can lead to a beautiful antiqued patina over years of loving care.

The most common percentage of silver in a piece of jewelry is 92.5% which is the minimum requirement for silver to be called “sterling silver.” This percentage is typically written as .925 or 925. We also have many pieces that are made from 95% silver which are typically noted as .950 or 950.

How to Clean Your Silver
3.- Submerge your jewelry in the solution. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes. Stir it around a bit to see whether the tarnish is going away. When you see that the silver's shine has been restored, remove the silver from the solution.[3]
If you're working with deeply tarnished silver, you might need to repeat the process two or more times. Make sure the solution is completely heated, since the reaction is much slower if the solution is cool.

How to Clean Your Silver
2.- Add salt and aluminum foil. Stir one tablespoon of salt it into the hot water with a spoon until it completely dissolves. Take a sheet of aluminum foil and tear off a few strips, then put them in the bowl. The combination of salt and aluminum will react with the tarnish on the silver's surface and create a bright, shiny surface in place of the tarnish.
Tarnish happens when the surface of silver combines with sulfur and turns into silver sulfide, which is black. When silver sulfide reacts with aluminum in a salt solution, the chemical reaction between the substances turns the silver sulfide back to silver. The reaction happens faster when the solution is warm.[2]
If you don't have table salt on hand, you can use baking soda instead. It has the right properties to facilitate the same chemical reaction.

How to Clean Your Silver
1Pour two cups of hot water into a bowl. You just need enough to cover the jewelry you're cleaning. This method works as a gentle cleanser that removes tarnish without abrading the silver.[1] If your silver is lightly tarnished, the salt bath should take the tarnish right off.
If you're cleaning a lot of jewelry at once, you can use more water. For just one piece of jewelry, use less water.
If your jewelry has gemstones, make sure they won't be affected by being submerged in a saltwater solution. This solution is gentle on most stones, but if you're cleaning very fine jewelry with expensive gemstones, you're better off taking it to a professional just in case.

How to Clean Your Silver
JewelrySilver is a versatile metal with a soft luster that makes for beautiful jewelry. Unfortunately, silver is also pretty fragile compared to many more commonly-used metals, and it can quickly develop tarnish, stains, or scratches. It can also be a bit intimidating to try to clean silver pieces because they are so delicate. However, you don't have to be a professional or use expensive tools to clean your silver yourself.

3 Reasons Men Should Wear Silver Jewelry

Long Lasting: Silver jewelry will stand the test of time. Silver is a strong metal that can withstand everyday wear, making it a great investment.

Neutral: For many men, when it comes to fashion, the easier the better. Silver jewelry is wonderfully neutral, making it the perfect option to pair with any outfit.

Good Value: While sterling silver jewelry pieces may not be 100% silver, they boast one of the highest ratios of pure precious metal to not for your money.

High-quality, unique silver jewelry from Mexico
Taxco is a small but thriving city that has made huge historical contributions to the country of Mexico. Taxco is known for their jewelry, and this is why.
Early Center of Industry

In the 1800’s, Taxco was a center of mining. Stones were mined and used for decorative and ritual purposes, leading to an early importance of art and jewelry that is still seen today.
