Sterling silver gifts are beautiful; that is until they come into contact with oxygen or sulphur over an extended period of time. When this happens your sterling silver mens bracelets becomes tarnished and looks discoloured and dirty. Fortunately, caring for your favourite necklaces and accessories is easy.
The easiest way to keep your sterling silver jewellery clean and tarnish free is to wear it often. The oils in your skin will actually help to keep your jewellery collection looking as shiny as the day you purchased it. However, there are certain things that you need to keep away from your mens sterling silver bracelets if you want them to stay looking good. Household chemicals, rubber, chlorinated water, and perspiration will all cause the metal to tarnish. Substances that contain sulphur will also cause them to tarnish and corrode. Keep your bracelets and rings away from latex and wool, as well as foodstuffs. Exposure to cosmetics, hair products, and skin lotions also accelerate tarnishing. It is always best to put your jewellery on last after aftershaves and other body products. How you store your sterling silver is just as important when it comes to keeping it tarnish free. The best way to do this is to store it in airtight plastic bags and place anti-tarnish strips in the bags. Remember that each piece of jewellery should be kept in its own bag to prevent pieces from scratching each other. Alternatively, keep your silver in a low humidity area with a piece of chalk to soak up any moisture.
