The amount of silver that is lost in the process of refurbishing the new looks and appearance through the process of buffing, grinding and polishing in the silver jewelry of various kinds, is huge. When you add on the costs towards the polishing processes and the costs of the silver lost from the original weight of the product, there you could realize that there is a huge amount of money that you had already lost. This loss could have been avoided completely if in case you are maintaining your silver jewelry from the day one that you purchased.
Remember some of these primordial facts about the silver jewelry in special.
It is so commonly witnessed among the homemakers to wear their silver jewelry and golden ornaments while washing clothes in the yard or even while doing dishwashing. Whether they do it for a pride or show off to others to display their potential, it is a different issue. However, when it comes to the maintenance part of the silver jewelry rinsing them in water and then exposing them to soaps and chemical preservatives for long hours during house chores is something suicidal to these items. They will not last even for a short span of time in that case.
You could notice the immediate darkening of the silver jewelry in due course of time when you wear them all through out the day. Even the sweat in the hands or in the neck could readily react with the outer coatings and the impurities present in the metal to start to deteriorate the metal surface. The warping and abrasion that takes place in the outer thin films of the surface of the metal soon start to eat away a lot of original silver metal itself during the process of corrosion. If left unnoticed about all the ongoing chemical reactions in the silver jewelry that you are wearing, you will soon lose half of the original weight of the product.
Even if you take them to the repair shops they cannot recover the new looks without sacrificing further more silver metal out of it. The impurities present in the sterling silver jewelry are ever ready to react with the atmosphere. Silver rings should be wiped off from the sweat as often as possible. Similarly, the silver bracelets and silver necklaces should also be taken care same ways to prevent catching up with the moisture.
