Cleaning Silver and Silver Plating
Cleaning silver and silver plating is a frustrating and difficult task, involving a lot of elbow grease and finicky work. However, the beauty of this ageless precious metal cannot be left to discolour and tarnish.
First brought to Britain by the Romans, silver is the precious metal chosen in the manufacture of silverware and jewellery for its beautiful shimmering white metallic sheen. Items are usually made from or plated in sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver alloyed with copper.
The distinctive hallmarks found on solid silver items denoting their age, origin and craftsman distinguish them from silver-plated pieces. Both suffer equally from rubbing and polishing with abrasive chemical cleaners, however, which remove a layer of silver along with the tarnish with each polishing. This is how solid silver loses it markings and patina, while plated pieces eventually get stripped down to their base metal.
Fortunately, there is an answer for those who cannot permit their irreplaceable treasures to be subjected to such abrasive treatment.
