Welcome to the 695th Metamorphosis Monday!
How do you store your silver jewelry? Over the years I’ve purchased a few Tiffany & Co. silver necklaces, bracelets, and rings They are inexpensive, as jewelry goes, and always so sparkly and beautiful. I especially love their enamel and silver pieces.
Of course, Tiffany jewelry always comes in their signature blue jewelry pouch that helps prevent tarnishing, but the problem with the pouches is you can’t see what’s in them. So if you have several silver jewelry pieces, each time you wish to wear a piece, you have to open each pouch to find the one you need. Or, if you’re like me, you forget what you even have and end up not wearing it since it’s out of sight and out of mind.
Almost four years ago I ordered this see-thru, silver jewelry storage system that is supposed to help keep silver jewelry from tarnishing. It’s double-sided and I really liked how the jewelry is visible at all times, though it’s being stored in a tarnish-free way. (Jewelry Keeper is currently on sale here: Silver Jewelry Keeper.)
Here’s how it looked when I added my jewelry to it a few years back.
I pulled it out last night and took a few photos to share so you can see how my jewelry is looking today after not being polished for 3-1/5 years.
I’m really pleased with how well this silver jewelry keeper has worked. I could wear any of these pieces right now without having to polish them first. I would probably just give them a once over with one of the little Tiffany and Co. silver cloths, but they look fine to wear just as they are.
For storing necklaces on long chains, I loop the chain through the little tab twice. The tabs snap open and closed so it’s very easy to hang necklaces or bracelets.
This storage method really does work. I have not polished any of these jewelry pieces in over 3-1/2 years!
If you have silver jewelry and need a way to store it where it will stay looking great and ready to be worn, you’ll find this hanging jewelry storage pouch on sale here: Silver Jewelry Keeper.)
For polishing my silver jewelry, I’ve been using Tiffany & Co.’s silver polish that’s sold at the Tiffany and Co. website, but it’s really expensive and you don’t get very much in the container. They’ve reduced the size of their container over the years. I think I’m going to try Hagerty’s jewelry polish since Hagerty is what was recommended to me by the most high-end, prestigious silver shop in Buckhead, Atlanta. They told me that Hagerty was all they used on their sterling silver flatware and holloware. So I’m guessing their jewelry cleaner is probably just as good as their other products. (Hagerty sterling and silverplated jewelry polish is available here: Hagerty Silver Jewelry Polish.)
Their spray polish is my favorite for cleaning my silver flatware and other silver/silver plated holloware. It gets down into all the grooves which I really like. Just be sure to wear a mask when using it since it’s a spray. I purchase it here: Hagerty Spray Silver Polish.
For flat silver/silver plated pieces that don’t have a lot of detail work or ornamentation, I use their regular silver polish, available here: Hagerty Silver Polish. I really don’t trust any other brand, especially for my sterling flatware.
Hope you found this post helpful if you have silver jewelry or silver flatware/holloware.
Looking forward to all the wonderful Before and Afters linked for this week’s Met Monday!
