Problems with jewelry changing color?
« on: January 21, 2011, 03:07:06 PM »
I wanted to see if anyone else brought or bought silver jewelry here that is changing color? I brought some of my favorite sterling silver pieces from home that were in good condition. Now, they are starting to turn a dark grey color. I don't have anything but a shelf to store them on, but I was wondering if it is something to do with humidity or temperature that could be changing them. I've been cleaning them, but they do not shine up. They are nearly unwearable now and I have been thinking of shipping them home, but I don't usually trust sending jewelry through the mail....

Have you tried taking it to a jewelry store to have it cleaned? My girlfriend also had a Stirling silver bracelet which had also started going dark and they cleaned it up very nicely.

Yeah you can either take it to the store or buy some silver cleaner, some jewelery just changes faster than others.  Also when not wearing it store them in ziploc bags, it helps keep the color.

Before spending the money on silver polish, try toothpaste and a cotton cloth.

Here is some info:
