Whether you’re looking for a simple way to update the look of your existing silver jewellery collection or are looking for a more novel way to display your jewellery collection there are a number of ways of doing so that won’t break the bank. Many people don’t realise just how easy it is to change the look of silver jewellery. You can achieve this by either painting on new stones, adding on gemstones or changing the design of the jewellery itself. For example, many people will buy a lovely necklace that they love, but find that it doesn’t match their current wardrobe. By simply purchasing another piece of silver jewellery with the same design as your old favourite you’ll be able to change the whole look of your outfit. This is one of the best and most budget-friendly ways to change the appearance of your jewellery.
When purchasing silver, it’s worth thinking about how often you plan to wear it. For instance, if you only wear your jewellery a few times each year, such as on Valentine’s Day or at Christmas, you may be able to get away with painting it yourself. Sterling silver doesn’t react very well to the elements such as heat, cold and moisture so it’s a good idea to avoid hanging your jewellery near these sources of change. You should also take care to ensure that you clean the jewellery as little as possible as silver is an extremely dirty metal.
On the other hand, if you want to hang your silver jewellery for months or even years on end, you’ll need to consider silver polishing services. The problem with cleaning your own jewellery is that many of the ingredients used to make the solution also have a nasty propensity to leave stains. If you use a sterling silver polishing cloth on your jewellery when it first arrives in the store, the polish will have worked into the item so that when you bring it home – especially if you’ve just bought it out of the box – it will still have a fresh shine to it. Rather than spending time and effort trying to remove the spots, you could choose to spend less time on cleaning and more time on polishing.
