What is the best way to store my jewelry when not worn?

All Boma Jewelry purchases are packaged with an anti-tarnish strip and compostable air-tight plastic bag. We suggest that when your jewelry is not worn that you store your jewelry in this air-tight bag including the anti-tarnish strip.

Why is my jewelry tarnished?

Your Boma Jewelry is made with sterling silver which has been the jewelry standard since the 14th century. Sterling silver is made up of pure silver with a mix of alloys with a small amount of copper. 100% pure silver is not used for jewelry because it would be too soft and not keep its shape. It is the mixture of 92.5% silver with 7.5% alloys that allows sterling silver to offer the luster we love, with durability needed for jewelry and other household goods.


However, naturally over time any sterling silver jewelry exposed to air will tarnish. Usually it is caused by the other metals mixed with your jewelry, typically copper, that makes sterling silver tarnish. The copper reacts to moisture and sulfur in the air, causing the tarnish. Sterling silver will tarnishes faster in areas with high humidity and air pollution. Additionally, chemicals like hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, etc., can speed up the tarnishing process.


The good news is that silver can be restored to its original luster with the proper care and cleaning techniques. Learn more about how to remove tarnish below.

How do I prevent tarnish?

All Boma Jewelry purchases are packaged with an anti-tarnish strip and compostable air-tight plastic bag. We suggest that when your jewelry is not worn that you store your jewelry in this air-tight bag including the anti-tarnish strip.

Why use a polishing cloth to clean my jewelry?

With the proper care and simple materials you can keep your jewelry polished and shiny. It is important to note that silver can scratch quite easily so you should use a soft, nonabrasive cloth e.g. a microfiber or lint-free cloth. Never use tissues or paper towels as these can scratch the silver with their fibers.


To polish, go backward and forward across the piece in long strokes, mirroring the grain of the silver. A lot of tips that tell you how to remove tarnish from sterling silver will say to use circular motions, but don’t because this can accentuate tiny scratches. Frequently change the bit of cloth you’re using as well so you don’t transfer the tarnish back onto your jewelry.

Where do I find polishing cloths?

Boma currently sells professional-grade polishing cloths. These professional grade buffing and polishing cloths provide two useful benefits in one. One side is designed for general cleaning and polishing while the other side is designed for final polishing that makes your precious metal jewelry look brand new.
