Silver Care

If you want your silverware to remain beautiful and shiny for a very long time, it must be correctly cared for.

1. How to remove excess wax from candleholders?

It is best to remove the hot wax drippings as soon as possible, but if this cannot be done the candleholder should then be placed in hot water for a few minutes, so that the wax will become warm and be easily removed. Since silver is a metal, it transmits heat, so please be very careful when handling. Remember also to wipe all the excess water immediately with a soft dry cloth so no drop stains will remain.

The thickness of the silver - In low-quality silverware, it is possible to find tiny "crevices" and cracks in the silver behind the embossing. These crevices could be caused by the low grade, thinness and low weight of the silver, which is affected when it is bent. High-grade silverware, made of thicker silver, will not have any crevices or cracks. Checking for this is easy and simple, just pick up the item and look at its back or bottom through the light.

2. Why does silverware turn black?

Silver is a precious metal that has the tendency to become yellow and then turn black. This is called oxidation and is a natural process that occurs due to contact of the silver with the air. To preserve silver shiny clean for a long time, we recommend that the objects be softly wiped every two weeks. This will prevent the silver from becoming yellow or black.

Also, we recommend maintaining silverware behind closed glass doors to prevent contact with the air.

The quality of all silver must be closely checked. Hold the item in your hands and observe:
The stamp of quality - On every piece of high quality silverware, there must appear a stamp with the number 925 and the manufacturer's name. The number 925 testifies that the article is made of the highest international standard of quality for sterling silver and that it contains 92.5 % of pure silver and 7.5% copper. A reliable manufacturer defines the high quality of his merchandise, since he is solely responsible for the quality of the silver .The stamp is usually found at the back or the bottom of each item. Look for it.

3. How to clean silverware?

For deep cleansing and perfect shine we recommend using the silver cleaning creams or spray by Hagerty. Hagerty products are easy to use and have almost no side effects caused by strong scents and excess cream. Hagerty products contain R-22, which creates a protective layer on the silver and therefore delays the oxidation process. Hagerty products don't harm the silver coating and are Kosher for Pesach and for every day of the year.

4. How to shine silver objects?

To preserve the shine of your silverware, the objects must always be well cleaned and wiped. For this purpose, we recommend using a cleaning preparation and gloves. No sharp utensils or rough cloth should be used when cleaning silver as they could cause scratches on the silver surface.

Clean the items softly and do not use force, particularly when cleaning candelabra or candleholders, which have fine parts and could bend out of shape.

Silverware that comes in contact with food must be washed after each use, especially if it has come in contact with vinegar, wine, lemon or salt. After washing, the object must be wiped dry with a soft cloth.

5. What silverware gift to buy?

A silver object is always a prestigious, practical, beautiful and original gift. It is preserved for many years, it is passed on from one generation to another, and it is dear to the giver as well as the receiver. A silver object can be given for any occasion and according to the available budget.

As a wedding present, when a young couple establishes a new home, is a wonderful opportunity to make a gift of silver. There is a great variety of prices and objects that are suitable for the groom and the bride, like a pair of elegant decorated cups with matching tray, candlesticks, wine set, goblets, bowls, vases, trays, photo frames etc.

6. Sterling Silver Wine Goblets

Although it seems ironic and not many people know it, wine can actually damage the silver coating in a cup, leaving stains that cannot even be removed with the best of silver cleaning preparations. So, immediately after using the goblet must be wiped clean with a soft dry cloth. This should be done with all silverware that has come in touch with wine or with other liquids. Most of us are familiar with the small black or rust colored spots that can appear on silver objects. These are caused by the salt contained in water and in wine; therefore silver items should not be submerged in water for a long time. Always keep them dry and shiny.

7. Silver - A Prestigious History

Silver has been considered a prestigious and desirable gift since the Middle Ages. For thousands of years silver was the material used for jewellery and other artifacts, and also for commerce and the casting of coins. In the Bible, we find many mentions of silver: Eliezer, Abraham's slave, gave Rebecca silverware as a gift and Joseph's silver goblet was hidden in Benjamin's garments, the women of Israel were asked to borrow silverware from their neighbors, during the exodus, to be used later for many of the temple's artifacts. All the people of Israel have, throughout the years, considered silver a kind of "sacred commandment" and so silverware becomes not only an object of adornment but also a symbol of sanctity.

8. Combined Silver Objects

Products that combine silver with other materials are today a modern tendency. These items require a particularly delicate treatment. Silver combined with wood: the silver and wood may be cleaned only with soft and dry cloth. It is recommended not to engrave products integrating wood and silver. Do not use any cleaning agents.

Silver combined with leather: the silver and leather may be cleaned only with soft and dry cloth. It is recommended not to engrave products integrating leather and silver. Do not use any cleaning agents.

Silver combined with glass or crystal: the silver parts must always be cleaned as above; the glass must be washed and dried with a clean cloth. Silver Imports recommends not engraving objects made with two materials.
