Sterling Silver Bangles
Today, more and more people are able to find different means of wearing jewelry and
accessories. There are a number of ways to accessorize or make a statement with your jewelry; one of these ways is with different types of bangle.
In recent years glass bangles have found favor with both Bride and Bridesmaids at American weddings. A widow would wear a metallic bangle as glass bangles are the sign of a married woman, who has a husband that is still alive.
A bracelet is usually made with links whereas a bangle is a thick solid piece of jewelry that can be made out of anything that can hold its shape.
If you do have a Sterling silver bangle you will need to care for it properly. Keeping your Sterling silver bangles beautiful for many years to come requires very little effort.
Take care not to allow your silver to come into contact with chemicals like acetone, ammonia or bleach which can ruin your jewelry.
You can use commercial jewelry cleaners provided there are none of the above chemicals in the ingredients. Natural oxidation or tarnish often occurs on all silver, which can make your Sterling silver bangle look dull; using a jeweler’s cloth, sometimes also called a silver cloth, will often removed the tarnish by simply using a gentle rubbing motion. To prevent your sterling silver jewelry from scratching against other pieces and to also reduce oxidation store your silver in a tarnish proof cloth. You need to give your jewelry proper care and storage if you want it to last a lifetime.
