Maintenance and care of your silver jewelry: Practical advice for lasting shine

Silver, a precious and elegant metal, is a popular choice for jewelry, thanks to its timeless shine and sophisticated look. Altiplano silver jewelry, inspired by rich Latin American culture, is no exception. Yet silver can lose its luster over time, becoming tarnished with exposure to air and other elements. Fortunately, with the right care and maintenance, your silver jewelry can retain its original beauty for years to come. Here are some practical tips to achieve this.

Wear them often

One of the easiest ways to keep your silver jewelry shiny is to wear it regularly. Skin contact helps maintain silver's luster and prevent tarnishing. Of course, certain precautions should be taken when wearing your jewelry to avoid excessive wear.

Avoid exposure to chemicals

Chemicals found in pool water, cleaning products, and even some cosmetics can damage silver. It is advisable to remove your silver jewelry before bathing, cleaning or applying beauty products such as lotions, perfumes or hairspray.

Regular cleaning

Gently clean your silver jewelry with a soft cloth after each use to remove body oils and other residue. For a deeper clean, use a silver cleaning solution or a mixture of baking soda and water. Apply the solution with a soft toothbrush and rinse with clean water before drying with a soft cloth.

Proper storage

When not worn, store your silver jewelry in a cool, dry place, protected from air and moisture. Fabric-lined jewelry boxes or anti-tarnish fabric pouches are ideal for this. Avoid storing multiple pieces together to prevent scratches.

Periodic polishing

For jewelry that is already tarnished, polishing with a cloth specially designed for silver can restore its original shine. Use gentle, circular movements to avoid damaging the surface of the jewelry. If tarnishing persists, consider hiring a professional for a thorough cleaning.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure long life and lasting shine to your precious Altiplano silver jewelry. Not only do you preserve their beauty, but you also continue to celebrate the spirit and culture that makes them unique.
