If you look after your silver personalised cufflinks, they will stay looking as good as new for years to come. Looking after sterling silver is not as difficult as you may think and it starts with protecting your cufflinks from damage when they are not being worn.
Silver is a soft metal and while this makes it perfect for jewellery, particularly small intricate designs and pieces that are to be engraved, it also means that it is easier to damage than gold or stainless steel. The easiest way by far to protect your personalised cufflinks is to purchase a cufflink box. Generally, there are two types of boxes, ones that hold a single pair of cufflinks, and those that can be used to store multiple pairs. Those that hold multiple cufflinks have individual sections in which you can place each pair. They are also usually able to hold other pieces of jewellery or small accessories, such as tie pins. The type you choose will depend on a number of factors, including space and personal taste. Both boxes will do the same job of stopping your cufflinks from being scratched by other items. The next thing to consider is where you keep your cufflink box. Silver should be stored at a constant temperature, ideally cool, and away from damp conditions and out of direct sunlight. For this reason, a drawer or cupboard in the bedroom is preferable to say the bathroom. When not stored appropriately, the best way to keep your sterling silver cufflinks looking their best is to wear them; silver is less likely to tarnish if it is being worn regularly.
