Silver tarnishes due to a reaction with something in the environment. Sterling silver could tarnish when exposed to household cleaning products, hair products, some lotions and even chlorine in the pool. Humidity levels inside your home or office can also cause silver to tarnish more quickly.
Keep your silver looking its best by wearing it often to keep tarnish at bay. Avoid chemicals – including chlorine in swimming pools, lotions, cosmetics and fragrances that can cause tarnishing. After wearing, wash in warm water and pat dry with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. Store individually in its pouch to prevent scratching.
