Silver darkens over time - this is absolutely normal!

If the silver item is not plated with rhodium or other electroplating, then it will begin to darken when reacting with certain chemicals. There is nothing to worry about, and in most cases, you can easily clean your jewelry without leaving your home.

In many years of working in jewelry, we haven't found anything better than Hagerty's special silver cleaning cloths.

It is the silver cleaning cloth that best cares for silver jewelry. If your silver has darkened, then you need to rub the dark places well with this cloth and the jewelry will become clear and shine again.

Of course, there are many other brands that produce similar fabrics for cleaning silver, but this one is our favorite.










If the pollution is too strong, you can clean the silver with ammonia. To do this, you need the following ingredients: alcohol, water, hydrogen peroxide and liquid soap.

250 ml of water
1 teaspoon of ammonia (no need to add more, it can damage the product)
5 drops of hydrogen peroxide
A little liquid soap (it can be Ferry).
Mix everything, heat to 40-50 degrees Celcius (almost hot), place the jewelry in the container with the mixture for 30-40 minutes, depending on the size of the product and contamination. Then rinse the piece and clean with our soft cloth.


If the jewelry contains semi-precious or precious stones, we do not recommend immersion in solutions!!!


These can simply be washed in warm soapy water and wiped with a soft cloth dampened with ammonia. After cleaning, the jewelry must be rinsed in clean water, dried and rubbed again with the special cloth.
Please note that this method should not be used to clean jewelery with a blackened finish.

There is also an option to clean silver with baking soda:
It is necessary to dilute the baking soda with water until it forms a paste and clean the silver with this solution. But in no case rub with a toothbrush! Just with a soft sponge.
This method is best for cutlery. Although, Hagerty has special cutlery solutions.

We also advise against cleaning silver with toothpaste, as many did in the past. Silver is a soft metal and scratches are created with this treatment.

If you have not succeeded in cleaning well the jewelry at home, you can contact us for a special service.
