|Silver will naturally tarnish with age and body chemistry. Use a soft silver flannel cloth and rub thoroughly. No commercial cleaning agents as this will remove inscription detail and may damage pearls.|
For stubborn tarnish you can try these techniques: 1.) Use a SUPER fine #0000 steel wool and rub lightly followed by a flannel silver polish cloth.
2.) Line a small bowl with tin foil shiny side up and fill will 1 tablespoon baking soda & a little water. Let the necklace soak overnight. Rinse the next day and & rub with polish cloth to fully restore original shine.
You may get your piece wet - it is waterproof. However, it is not advisable to let it soak in a pool or bathtub because that may negatively affect the antique finish and pearls.
You can purchase a silver polish cloth from us or at a jewelry store or a major retail store. Do not wash the polish cloth since it contain special chemicals to clean silver.
