Silver jewelry is black not because of poor quality but because of the user’s body

In fact, there are many people who like to use silver, but after using it for a while, they notice that the brightness, gloss, and durability of the product have decreased. Especially when wear it on, you will see the appearance of silver is dull, darker especially for people with oily sweat, sweat a lot, or when they get sick… and wondering why is that. After many years of experience, experts claim that silver becomes duller and darker because of the characteristics of human body, not the quality of the product.

You can’t prevent your silver jewelry from turning black even when you wear pure one, there is still a combination of silver with sulfur to form silver salts. The only way to help your silver jewelry shine is to polish them regularly and should not wear them continuously. If someone sweat that is high in acid, it will make silver more susceptible to turning black. Silver is involved in a chemical reaction with acids, which oxidizes the silver. Therefore, if you see your wearing silver jewelry is discolored, do not worry because it is just a normal natural reaction.
