Wear it often: your skin's natural oils will help to prevent tarnish, keeping your jewelry bright and shiny!
Leave it at home when super active: working out? Doing anything that breaks a sweat? Silver is a soft metal and is, therefore, prone to dings and scratches. Protect your pieces by leaving them at home when physically active.
Keep away from water and chemicals: leave your pieces behind when going for a dip in the ocean or pool, or harsh cleaning chemicals. Also, wait to put on your pieces until AFTER you finished with your makeup, lotion, or hairspray. All can contribute to tarnish.
Store it in an air-tight container: tarnish is the result of a chemical reaction with oxygen or sulfur particles in the air. To prevent this tarnish, store it in a container or bag like a Stasher bag!
Keep it in a cool, dark place: sunlight, heat, and moisture can accelerate tarnishing. If possible, try to store in a low humidity environment.
Store each piece individually: since silver is a soft metal, storing your pieces separately will help to prevent dings and scratches.
Wipe clean with a jewelry cloth: this is the quickest and easiest way to remove tarnish.
Rub with dish soap and water: don't have a cloth handy? try gently washing tarnished silver pieces with some dish soap and water. Never rub it after washing as this can cause discoloring.
Clean with baking soda and water: make a paste using a little baking soda and water and GENTLY scrub your piece using a toothbrush or cloth, avoiding any stones in your piece.
Soak in white vinegar and baking soda: to remove heavy tarnish from pieces that do not contain stones, soak in 1/2 cup of white vinegar + 2 tbsp of baking soda for an hour or two. Rinse your jewelry afterwards.
