Hiho,

first of all hello to EVERYONE !!!

The following problem I bought a curb chain and today it finally arrived!

Now of course I'm wondering what to watch out for and to have a nice chain as long as possible?

Are there certain things to watch out for, for example not going into the water with the chain ???

Thank you for your tips & tricks!

best regards

above all: do not wear it because sweat and other environmental rivers leave their marks
storage: ideally in a vacuum, because silver itself tarnishes when lying down due to sulfur in the air
did that answer your questions?
no?

ok then wear it
but lose weight in the mud bath (sulfur), with body care and hair treatment too
Every now and then with a discarded toothbrush, brush it off with lukewarm soapy water and then peel it off with a polishing cloth, bingo, then it looks like new

The other day someone wanted to complain about a silver chain with me because of covering !, once with the cleaning cloth over it and the chain was like new, but he was amazed

I have one more!

Silver that tarnishes (turns black) can be remedied with a remedy from grandma's recipe book.

Put the silver jewelry in a cup with a piece of aluminum foil in it. add a teaspoon of salt and pour hot water over it.
Aluminum and salt react somehow and the silver becomes light again.
Try it out!

hello Phil,

You can save yourself this process of silver cleaning for a very, very long time,
if you put your silver chain in a ziplock bag after every wear
made of plastic. (So ​​air-protected and shielded from light, possibly in a
drawer etc.).

if you should wear this chain every day (including at night), you must of course wear the above.
fall back on methods. but it won't be worn every day as quickly
black.

Oh dear Karin
I know people where the chain turns black when you wear them.
So far nobody has been able to tell me why this is so. But you can't tell the customer in the face that it is their fumes that are to blame. No customer likes to hear that.

Apart from the fact that I ignored the rare cases of extreme blackening in my polishing cloth tip, I already tell the customer that it is due to sulfur and that can also occur in sweat and through eating habits and other things and also in spurts
Such customers then have to live with it or wear rhodium-plated things or white gold, I'm not saying: if they would wash better, that wouldn't happen, that would be a reason to be offended, but the explanation is due to the environmental influences incl sweat

I also have a few candidates whose locking springs only survive a few weeks because of sweat and who therefore need steel-free locks
Specialty: seamless partner rings also made directly from delivered (old) gold and silver

ps: there are even people who have such rough skin that even gold of any fineness blackens the skin
and then the one where the rubber begins to color
and those where even the best necklaces / necklaces tip over because of the impossible effects of sticky sweat
I digress and finish for today

hey, tilo,

I've never heard of that before. so far i have sold my silver things without thinking about such extremes and have not yet received any negative feedback.

i registered a trade since january and am now iritated.
can i be taken into recourse in such extremes and how do i recognize
something with online sales?

???

Hello Manuel,

but how can you express it neatly and diplomatically?
i opened a shop and offered care tips there. but you would have to
(if there are such extremes) also point it out. or?

nope, not regress, it is typical for silver that it starts up, no appraiser will say anything else
how do you know what

because of care tips: extreme tarnishing you could already mention that it is rare and that it has nothing to do with the quality of the silverware
for some people the silver tarnishes because it is in a cheap china jewelry box, what is it evaporating?

the GENERAL SCHEIDEANSTALT has a comprehensive PDF with precious metal information; WHEREVER ON A PAGE I BELIEVE THAT STARTING; ups, is dealt with
there you could inform / inspire yourself, of course not copy it

I can confirm the matter of the cheap jewelry box. I've never had any problems in high-quality jewelry boxes. Recently, however, I picked up a "bargain" from Ludl * in which all the silver jewelry in it was completely blackened within two or three days. : evil:
