The Significance of Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is a popular choice for jewellery due to its beauty, durability, and affordability. It is an alloy made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This composition gives sterling silver its strength and makes it suitable for everyday wear. Unlike pure silver, which is too soft to be used in its pure form, sterling silver is more practical and long-lasting.

Not only is sterling silver a practical choice, but it also carries symbolic meaning. Silver has been associated with wealth, purity, and elegance throughout history. It is often believed to have protective and healing properties, making it a popular choice for jewellery that is worn close to the body. When combined with charms, sterling silver bracelets become not just a fashion statement, but also a meaningful accessory that can tell a story or represent something significant to the wearer.

How to care for sterling silver bracelets with charms

To ensure your sterling silver bracelet with charms stay beautiful and tarnish-free, proper care is essential. Here are some tips to help you keep your bracelets looking there best:

Store them properly when not displaying stock, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Consider using Sealy bags and anti-tarnish tabs.

Advise your customers to avoid exposure to chemicals with simple instructions such as removing bracelets before swimming, bathing, or using cleaning products. Chemicals such as chlorine, saltwater, and harsh cleaning agents can damage the silver and tarnish the charms. 

If showing signs of tarnish they can be cleaned regularly. To remove dirt and tarnish from bracelets, gently clean with a soft cloth or a silver polishing cloth. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals, as they can scratch the silver or damage the charms. If a bracelet becomes heavily tarnished which can happen when displaying stock for sale, you can use a silver cleaning solution or use a sonic cleaner (although avoid these options with gemstone set charms). A large number of our bracelets are now treated with anti tarnish ensuring the longevity of your stock too.

Handle with care. While sterling silver is durable, it can still scratch or dent if mishandled. Be mindful when handling bracelet and avoid exposing it to rough surfaces or excessive force. 

By following these care instructions, you can ensure that your sterling silver bracelet with charms remains beautiful and sparkling for years to come.
