Note: Sterling silver is an alloy made up of base metals that reacts with the chemical found in the air and tarnishes. Sterling silver should not be exposed to high moisture, sunlight, or salty water because it increases reaction rates. You can protect your silver sterling by storing it in airtight packages with products like tarnishing tabs/strips that absorb harmful chemicals and moisture. In case the silver tarnishes, it can be cleaned easily by polishing with an abrasive brush or soaking in an anti-tarnishing solution.
