How to Maintain Your Little Glam Sterling Silver Jewelry

To maintain your Little Glam sterling silver jewelry and keep it looking its best, here are some tips you can follow:

1. Store Properly: When you're not wearing your silver jewelry, it's important to store it in a cool, dry place. Ideally, use airtight containers or zip-lock bags to prevent tarnish and minimize exposure to moisture and air.

2. Keep Away from Chemicals: Avoid exposing your sterling silver jewelry to chemicals such as household cleaners, perfumes, lotions, and hairspray. These substances can cause the silver to tarnish or become dull. It's best to put on your jewelry after applying these products.

3. Clean Regularly: Regular cleaning helps remove dirt, oils, and tarnish from your silver jewelry. You can use a few methods to clean your silver:

  • Mild Soap and Water: Create a solution with a mild liquid soap and warm water. Gently scrub your jewelry with a soft cloth or a soft-bristle toothbrush. Rinse with clean water and pat dry.
  • Baking Soda Paste: Make a paste by mixing three parts baking soda with one part water. Apply the paste to a soft cloth or toothbrush and gently rub your jewelry. Rinse with water and pat dry.
  • Silver Polishing Cloth: Use a specially designed silver polishing cloth to gently polish your jewelry. These cloths are impregnated with chemicals that help remove tarnish and restore shine.

4. Avoid Excessive Polishing: While polishing can help remove tarnish, excessive polishing can wear off the thin layer of silver plating, especially for silver-plated jewelry. Only polish when necessary and use gentle motions.

5. Remove During Activities: Take off your sterling silver jewelry before engaging in activities that may expose it to moisture, chemicals, or physical damage. Examples include swimming, exercising, gardening, and household chores.

6. Professional Cleaning: If your silver jewelry has intricate designs, gemstones, or delicate components, it's advisable to seek professional cleaning and maintenance services. Jewelers have the expertise and tools to clean your jewelry effectively without causing damage.

Remember, proper care and maintenance can significantly extend the life and beauty of your sterling silver jewelry.
