How to clean your silver and gold-filled jewelry

Learn how to keep your jewelry shiny for years to come...

Each jewelry piece that is made from precious metals such as silver and gold-filled are so durable and can be easy to clean. We outline how to clean your patriotic necklace pendants and gold filled pendants. We are happy to announce we make this even easier for you, as Liberty Cottage Design provides you these polish cloths.

Argentium or Sterling Silver jewelry

We use mainly Argentium silver for our patriotic necklaces. We fell in love with this silver, for it’s beautiful shine and it’s resistance to tarnish. Even though it can be slow to tarnish, there are many environmental factors that can speed up the tarnishing such as living in a very humid environment, or not storing your silver in a jewelry box or bag. Over time, the air exposure to metals can lead to some tarnishing.

Yellow polish cloth

Luckily, it is so easy to clean a silver piece once you begin to see some tarnish. These yellow polish cloths are specifically designed to remove tarnish and oils. The cloth is impregnated with special micro-abrasives to not only remove tarnish but clean the pendant to a beautiful shine. These little yellow cloths are super durable and will last until the color has changed completely to black. They can easily be found and purchased on the web, but your purchase from Liberty Cottage Design will include a small yellow cloth for your convenience.

Gold-filled jewelry

Gold-filled is incredibly popular right now, and it’s a trend that will not be going away any time soon. If solid gold is out of your price range for jewelry, then gold-filled is the ideal replacement. Gold-filled is composed of a solid layer of gold, bonded to a base of another metal, such as sterling or copper. It has a beautiful shine, will not tarnish, and great for those with sensitive skin.

Blue polish cloth

The maintenance with gold filled is the easiest of all. This metal can last decades with proper care and cleaning. Since gold filled will not tarnish, you will only have to worry about keeping the pendant shiny. Gold filled can easily get dirty with fingerprints and oils. The blue polish cloth is also impregnated with a very gentle micro abrasive to clean dirt and oils and leave your pendant beautifully shiny. These cloths can also be found on the web, but we have included these cloths in your gold filled necklace purchase.

Your patriotic jewelry and gold filled necklaces will last for a very long time with proper care and cleaning. We wanted to make the experience very easy for you, to keep your jewelry looking amazing year after year. Our jewelry is perfect for gift giving, as we take great care in your experience and service from buying from us, to shipping your elegantly packaged jewelry gift.
