All silver will tarnish over time. It is very easy to
keep you silver jewellery looking clean and shiny though. Ideally you should
store your silver in an airtight container away from the light (keep it in
the grip seal bag that it came in). Give your silver jewellery a quick polish
with a silver cloth before wearing or if it is beginning to look dull or tarnished.
Heavily tarnished silver can be cleaned using a “Silver Dip”, which should
be readily available from your local hardware or from larger supermarkets.
Do not use a silver dip with silver jewellery, which has an oxidised finish
or which has stones, ambers etc.
If you have a natural high acidity level in your skin,
it is also possible that your finger may "turn green". That does not mean
that there is a fault with the silver or the manufacture of the silver jewellery.
For people with a higher acidity level sterling silver can cause your finger
to stain. How your skin reacts with silver can also be affected by diet.
