What to do if your jewelry tarnishes

When jewellery oxidizes, it can look dull and discoloured, which can be frustrating. Here are some tips on what you can do to restore your jewellery:

  1. Clean it with a soft cloth: Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe the jewellery and remove any surface dirt or debris. Avoid using rough cloths, as they can scratch the jewellery and make the oxidation worse.

  2. Use a polishing cloth: A polishing cloth is a specially treated cloth that can remove tarnish and oxidation from jewellery. Gently rub the jewellery with the cloth until it shines.

  3. Soak it in vinegar: If your jewellery is heavily oxidized, you can soak it in white vinegar for a few hours. After soaking, rinse the jewellery with water and dry it with a soft cloth.

  4. Use baking soda: Make a paste with baking soda and water and apply it to the jewellery. Gently rub it in, then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.

  5. Take it to a jeweller: If your jewellery is valuable or delicate, you may want to take it to a jeweller for professional cleaning and restoration.

Remember, prevention is key to keeping your jewellery from oxidizing. Store your jewellery in a cool, dry place, and avoid exposing it to moisture or harsh chemicals.
