Can I wear sterling silver in the shower or while swimming?

It is generally recommended to remove your sterling silver jewellery before showering or swimming. The chemicals in soaps, shampoos, and chlorine can accelerate tarnishing and damage the metal. Additionally, exposure to water can cause the jewellery to become dull and lose its shine over time.

How can I clean my tarnished sterling silver jewellery?

If your sterling silver jewellery has tarnished, you can easily clean it using a silver polishing cloth or a mild silver cleaner. Gently rub the tarnished areas to remove the tarnish and restore the shine. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals, as they can scratch or damage the silver.

Can I wear sterling silver if I have sensitive skin?

Sterling silver is generally hypoallergenic and safe to wear for people with sensitive skin. However, some individuals may still experience allergic reactions or skin irritation.

Sterling silver jewellery can be worn every day, but it requires proper care to maintain its beauty. By following the tips mentioned above and taking precautions to prevent tarnish, you can enjoy your sterling silver jewellery for years to come. Remember to clean and store your jewellery properly, and if you have sensitive skin, test it before wearing it for long periods.
