Polishing Your Jewellery Is So Simple Even A Baby Could Do It
Posted on December 14 2017
Tarnished silver jewellery is a little bit embarrassing. As the owner, it seems to others as though
you don’t care, when the reality is that you might have no idea what to do.
Air conditioning and moisture build up can cause your jewellery to become weathered and
easily tarnished, either with black spots or lose its lustre.
After putting all that effort into creating your perfect custom Annalise charm, you probably
wouldn’t want anything to happen to it. Here’s a secret:
The key to keeping your jewellery polished has (literally) been right under your nose all along.
It’s so easy, even a child could do it!
Polishing your jewellery using toothpaste
That is correct. Toothpaste.
Annalise charms are handpolished to a mirror finish, which means that a lot of care has gone
into creating these charms, the only thing that would be good enough to care for such a charm,
would be your own hands...
We provide a bespoke Annalise polishing cloth with every charm so that you can rest assured
that even while silver does weather over time, you at least have something to buff it and keep
your precious charm in dazzling condition.
Caring for your Annalise charm with toothpaste
It’s really simple:
Rub a peasized amount of toothpaste over your Annalise charm with a little bit of water.
The detergents that are present in toothpaste, a little bit of foam is not uncharacteristic, and is
due to sodium lauryl sulfate.
Thanks to the detergents, you’ll notice that a lot of the black marks will immediately come off,
while others might need a bit more tenacity.
Rinse the toothpaste off well and wipe off any excess water with a paper towel.
“Is it safe to polish my silver jewellery with toothpaste?”
Yes. Yes it is...
Toothpaste has ingredients which make it mild (and safe) enough to remove debris such as
plaque in your mouth. It has gone through rigorous testing to make sure that it’s safe to be
ingested, and has the right amount of mild abrasives.
Ingredients such as sodium benzoate which prevent the buildup of moisture and
microorganisms are sure fire way to prevent your silver charm from tarnishing and maintaining
its beautiful mirror finish.
Don’t let anything try to dull your charm!
