My rings are platinum and I use Connoisseur cleaning solution regularly – i’m pretty sure they also make one suitable for silver so maybe you could try that, just make sure it’s the silver one. Otherwise I have used silver cloths on silver jewellery which work well but I guess it may be your intricate design that means the cloth can’t reach in any Patterns.

Are you in the UK? If so try Goddards silver dip. Works like a charm. You just need a quick dip, then a rinse under the tap and a quick polish with a silver cloth. If you’re not wearing your jewellery then try to store it in dust bags. Silver jewellery will tarnish though. It’s just a natural property.

While toothpaste does remove tarnish, it’s also abrasive enough to leave the silver with a dull surface finish. I’d also be careful with the silver dip. It not only ‘cleans’ the silver; it actually removes a layer of it as well. Connoisseurs Jewelry Wipes (dry disposables) have been the most effective for keeping my silver pieces shiny and new-looking.

gemstoneheart:  hey I didn’t realise you’re also an Aussie Bee. The only place I’ve found the connoisseur stuff is Saleras, But luckily they’re in most westfields and other big shopping centres.

gemstoneheart: I’m not familiar with stores in your region, but found them on eBay in Australia. The seller is antiquegoldandjewels and they’re sold for AU $15. They have 100% positive feedback for 4,630 items sold.

They’re also sold by a jeweler called Hoskings (http://www.hoskings.com.au/products/connoisseurs-jewelry-wipes.html)

The only other place I could find them was on fishpond.com, but they were quite expensive there – $91.

I find giving it a whirl in the ultrasound cleaner every once in a while to get the dirt out of crevices helps to keep things shiny. Hope it helps!
