The question is how to clean silver jewelry. Cleaning silver jewelry is not that much different than cleaning gold jewelry. There's only one other step you want to take if you have very heavily tarnished silver jewelry there's a product on the market that you can buy in any grocery store and it's called tarnex. The only key with tarnex is you dip the ring in tarnex and then you pull it out and rinse it off; you don't want the tarnex to stay on the piece. But with pearls, opals, or emeralds tarnex, as well as many chemicals you have to be very careful around pearls, emeralds, and opals. But most silver jewelry, if it's tarnished, take some tarnex dip it in there or take a paint brush dip in the tarnex. And I just keep a paint brush here that I dip in the tarnex and I paint on the jewelry and then I'll just come over here and I'll rinse it off and the silver jewelry's clean. One final step you want to do with silver jewelry. Silver does not hold the polish as well as gold does, so as soon as you finish cleaning your jewelry one of the best products on the market is called connoisseurs jewelry wipes. And it's a small square cloth about this big around and it's dry. When you rub it across the jewelry it puts a very high polish on the silver. And this is the last thing you want to do with a silver ring, and you will get amazing results but when you see the cloth as it turns dark that's not dirt coming off the ring, that's a chemical reaction. You can use this cloth over and over again until it literally just falls apart on you. And these jewelry wipes can be bought in most jewelry stores across the country. And this is what it looks like when it's finished.
