Are .925 silver necklaces worth the investment?

Quite simply, yes. .925 sterling silver is made of 92.5% of pure silver, as the name implies, and is better than pure silver, which is very soft, rendering it challenging for jewelry artisans to shape. Sterling silver is a high-quality material that's both durable and beautiful to wear.


Do real silver necklaces tarnish?

Yes, real sterling silver necklaces can tarnish over time due to exposure to air, moisture, and other environmental factors. However, there is no need to panic. Tarnishing is a natural process that causes silver to turn a yellowish or blackish color. This can affect the appearance of the necklace. 

To minimize tarnishing, it's important to store silver necklaces in a cool, dry place when you’re not wearing them, and to clean them regularly with a soft cloth. Some people also choose to use anti-tarnish products or store their silver in anti-tarnish bags to help keep their necklaces looking their best.

The point is that your silver necklace will absolutely tarnish, which can be a great signifier that you have quality sterling silver pieces. You can always alleviate the effects and do your best to prevent tarnish buildup. 


How to care for & clean your silver necklaces:

As suggested earlier, we can’t escape tarnishing. So, we can take the necessary precautions to care for and clean our silver necklaces to help with this natural occurrence. Here are some tips for caring for and cleaning your silver necklaces:

Store silver in a dry, cool place. Store your silver necklaces in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture, to minimize tarnishing.

Clean regularly. Clean your silver necklaces regularly with a soft cloth to remove any tarnish and keep them looking shiny and bright.

Avoid exposing silver to chemicals. Avoid exposing silver to harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, and chlorine, as these can cause damage and tarnishing.

Use a silver cleaning solution. You can use a silver cleaning solution specifically designed for silver jewelry, but make sure to follow the instructions carefully and avoid using the solution on any gemstones or other materials that could be damaged by the solution.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush. To clean hard-to-reach areas, you can use a soft-bristled toothbrush and some warm water. Gently scrub the necklace with the brush, then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.

Handle silver gently. Handle your silver necklaces gently and avoid exposing them to excessive pressure or bending, which can cause damage to the metal.

Although we have to live with tarnish, there really is no need to worry about it. As long as we take these tips into consideration. When we take care of our silver necklace, they’ll return the favor by sustaining their brilliance. 


How do you style silver necklaces?

Silver is sleek and unassuming. It can be cool and industrial or embellished and sexy. It looks good styled with darker colors like navy blue as well as naturally layered on bare skin. Other colors that add an extra pop to silver are green, a black and white ensemble, burgundy, and gray. While considering the color of your outfit is essential, it is not the only element you should evaluate  when matching silver necklaces with your wardrobe. Pay attention to clothing design, style, and their patterns.  Silver is perfect all year round, paired with a simple, elegant dress or top. Take note of the different necklines to make sure you choose the right length and style of necklace:

Strapless or off-the-shoulder dresses and tops draw attention to your shoulders and collarbone. A short, delicate, silver necklace chain or choker is best here.

The more classic silver necklace with teardrop pendants are the best choices for V-necks. However, stay away from big, heavy, statement necklaces and choose more delicate ones to accentuate your neckline, preferably worn just below the collarbone. Let your neckline sparkle with a long-line silver necklace if you’ve chosen the deep-plunge V-look for the evening.  

Boat and scoop necks are graceful, sophisticated necklines.  Avoid bold, flashy statement silver necklaces with these styles and opt for the simpler, more elegant chains. 

In Winter, wear a longer silver chain necklace low over a turtleneck cashmere sweater. 

Styling silver necklaces can be incredibly fun and bring a breadth of creativity into our lives. Depending on your personal style, vibe, and the occasion, silver necklaces can be styled in many different ways. Here are some tips for styling silver necklaces:

Layer multiple necklaces. Layering multiple silver necklaces can create a stylish and eye-catching look. The layers bring texture and drama! Try mixing and matching different lengths, textures, and styles for a unique look.

Pair with other silver jewelry. Sometimes more is more. Pairing a silver necklace with other silver jewelry, such as earrings, bracelets, or rings, can help create a cohesive and polished look. You can pair a simple silver necklace with a dramatic earring like Italeau’s Circle Link Dangle Earrings for added depth and presence. 

Wear silver with simple outfits. Wearing a statement silver necklace with a simple outfit, such as a plain t-shirt or dress, can help the necklace stand out and make a bold statement.

Choose the right length. The length of the silver necklace can impact how it looks when worn. For example, a choker necklace can create a chic and sophisticated look, while a longer necklace can be more relaxed and casual.

Dress up or dress down. Versatility is the key. Silver necklaces can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Wear a dressy silver necklace to a formal event, or a casual silver necklace for a more relaxed look.

Ultimately, the best tip can be to just have fun and enjoy. Remember, the most important thing is to choose a silver necklace that you feel confident and comfortable wearing, and to have fun experimenting with different styles and ways to wear it!
