Zip lock bags are a cheap way to keep your jewellery looking newer for longer. Acid free tissue is also an excellent way to store your jewellery. To brighten up your silver pieces we recommend using a silver dip solution. Always ensure you clean your item after silver dipping, with warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. If your piece is partially oxidised we advise cleaning the bright silver areas only by rubbing with a silver polishing cloth. For gold plated items, you can use warm soapy water and a soft cloth to remove any dirt however it will not bring back any shine of the original plating. We would recommend a re-plating of your item if you want to give it its sparkle back.
