Here’s a guide on the care and maintenance of silver wholesale fashion rings that you can share with your customers.
Sterling silver is one of the most popular metals used in fashion jewelry. It's durable and can last a lifetime, especially with proper care. Sterling silver jewelry is also reasonably priced, making it the perfect choice of investment for starting jewelry businesses.
Aside from investing in wholesale fashion rings made of sterling silver, it's also pretty important to be knowledgeable about them when it comes to care and maintenance. That way, you can provide helpful tips to your customers and position yourself as an authority in the industry.
With that in mind, allow us to share this list of dos and don'ts of sterling silver rings:
STERLING SILVER RING DOS
#1 Store sterling silver rings properly.
Place the sterling silver rings in an anti-tarnish box lined with velvet or suede fabric on the inside. Another option is to wrap each piece in a small soft, lint-free cloth or a tiny fabric bag. Don't forget to include a pack of silica gel to avoid moisture buildup.
#2 Polish and clean sterling silver rings gently.
Thankfully, sterling silver rings are easy to clean and disinfect. Use a silver polish (not metal polish) and a soft lint-free towel to gently scrub and buff the surface of the ring. As for the nooks and crannies, gently scrub the areas in up and down motions using a soft-bristle toothbrush.
#3 Wear sterling silver rings as often as possible.
Wearing sterling silver rings every day prevents tarnish-buildup because of the skin's natural oils. Believe it or not, the oils maintain the silver's shine, preventing them from looking dull and old.
STERLING SILVER RING DON’TS
#1 Don’t wear sterling silver rings on your hands with freshly applied lotion.
Before wearing sterling silver rings, make sure that the lotion on your hands or any other chemical like perfume has dried and fully absorbed by the skin. These chemicals accelerate tarnish buildup, so it's recommended to wear sterling silver jewelry last.
#2 Don’t wear sterling silver rings when swimming in a pool.
Chlorine can destroy a sterling silver ring's beautiful look, coupled with extended contact with water. The same is the case for showering, doing household chores, and even exercising. Avoid wearing sterling silver rings if you know you'll engage in activities that require contact with water and other liquids.
#3 Don’t scrub the surface or use chemicals to clean them.
Scrubbing the piece harshly will scratch it. Stick to the lint-free cloth and soft-bristle toothbrush. Harsh substances such as ammonia, acetone, and bleach will damage your sterling silver jewelry. If a silver polish is not available, make a paste of baking soda and water instead.
