5x2 Sterling Silver Chesapeake Bay Bracelet
Wipe gently with a polishing cloth. Continual wearing usually prevents tarnish.
Sterling silver is comprised of 92.5% silver and 7.5% an alloy, (usually copper). The alloy is necessary to help slow down the natural tarnishing process as well as strengthen the metal. The higher the silver content, the quicker the tarnishing process will occur.
Silver will turn dark or even black as a reaction to oxygen in the air. This is known as oxidation. Cleaning your jewelry after use and storing in air tight containers will help prevent or slow down the oxidation process.
There are many other factors which can cause blackening of your silver. Some of the major causes are certain medications, certain foods including salty foods, eggs, mayonnaise and acidic items, contact with bleach, as well as salt water (the ocean), suntan lotions and moisturizers.
Some people rarely have a problem while others have a constant problem with tarnishing. It depends on the makeup of your skin oils and/or whatever the jewelry comes in contact with.
Our Chesapeake Bay Bracelets have the highest silver content for sterling silver. This along with the fact that they are not rhodium plated can cause some discoloration when other silver jewelry doesn't.
