How to – Care for your silver jewellery

Keeping your jewellery protected

If you are anything like the old me you might put your precious jewellery into not so precious places to “look after” it. I think we are all guilty of this. It seems crazy to spend money on our favourite pieces and then not care for them properly. Let’s banish those bad ways and start treating our jewellery with a little bit of much deserved TLC. Taking care to use polish and put them in storage will give you the new, shiny jewels you remember!

Town Talk Exquisite Silver Sparkle

For over 100 years Town Talk polish has been giving jewellery a radiant sparkle in a flash.

Read our top tips on how to use it –

This special jewellery cleaner is designed specifically for cleaning items of silver jewellery such as rings, chains or charms leaving them sparkling bright and protected against tarnish. In the studio we use this solution for our chains. From day to day wear your chains can become tarnished and grey looking, we find this most noticeable when you buy a new chain to layer with your existing.

How long should the jewellery be soaked in the liquid?
We recommend immersing your jewellery in the cleaning fluid for two minutes and if necessary, repeating the process until the items are clean. Do not leave items immersed for longer than two minutes at a time.

How long will the liquid remain effective as a cleaner?
The liquid remains effective until it is dark in colour and quite cloudy. When you can see particles of dirt at the bottom of the jar, it’s time to replace the liquid.

Should the jewellery be rinsed after cleaning?
Yes, it’s a good idea to rinse the jewellery under running water and then wipe it dry with a clean cloth.

Town Talk Miraculous Microfibre Jewellery Polishing Cloth

Made from 100% cotton, woven to exact specifications to give a very dense cloth capable of holding a heavy impregnation of cleaners and anti-tarnish agent suitable for cleaning heavily tarnished silver. Gently rub your jewellery the polishing cloth and you will remove built up tarnish to uncover the sparkle.

How do they work?
The Cloths work by applying the built-in cleaners to the surface of the metal, allowing them to take effect and leaving a smooth finish as the Cloth is swept away. The main cleaning ingredient is jewellers rouge – iron oxide, to give it its chemical name – which is recognised as the ideal material for cleaning silver.

How long will they last?
As you use them, the Cloths will turn black. This is a chemical reaction rather than a build-up of dirt.
You’ll prolong its active life by storing it in the plastic bag provided.

Can I wash my Cloth?
No. Doing so will destroy its cleaning property and render it ineffective as a polishing aid.
