All precious metals are different and should be cared for accordingly. Here are some easy steps you can take to keep your silver, gold or platinum replica Cartier jewelry, fake Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry, Knockoff Hermes jewelry or Replica Pomellato jewelry brilliantly shining.
Of all the metals, silver requires the most attention as it’s incredibly vulnerable to tarnishing. Tarnish occurs when the copper in sterling silver reacts with oxygen and moisture in the air and oxidizes. The result is a filmy, discoloration that dulls the shine of your jewelry—and in some extreme instances, turning the silver brown. Fortunately there are preventative measures you can take to slow down the oxidization process.
First, store your silver Cheap Van Cleef jewelry in fabric lined jewelry box, kept in a dry, cool location. Fabric jewelry bags or even plastic zip-lock bags are a fine alternative for overnight storage.
We recommend slipping a few anti-tarnish strips into your jewelry storage container. These strips absorb the air pollutants that cause unsightly tarnishing. Similarly silica packs (like the ones tucked inside shoeboxes or handbags) absorb moisture to curtail oxidation.
In addition to safely storing your replica Cartier love bracelet, do not wear silver jewelry in the shower, pool, hot tub or sauna. The combination of moisture, humidity and chlorinated water is particularly harsh on your sensitive silver.
To clean already tarnished silver, skip the DIY remedies. (The at-home baking soda or toothpaste-based recipes can actually scratch silver.) Instead wipe down your jewelry with a silver polishing cloth to restore the silver’s luster. If you need to bring in the heavy-duty cleaning supplies, use only cleaning products specifically designed for silver like a silver Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra jewelry wash. And if the stubborn tarnish remains, bring your piece into a jeweler for a professional cleaning.
