Cleaning a Silver Bracelet

I have a silver bracelet with cubic zirconias that has tarnished. I polished it with Wright's Silver Cleaner, but it still looks dark-ish. More like a stainless steel than a silver color. I have used this cleaner before successfully, so I think the problem is due more to the bracelet than to the cleaner.

Any suggestions?

No hallmarks indicating the type of silver in the bracelet.

Turtle Wax car polish will fix it beautifully. Smear it all over the silver, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe it off with a rag. The rag will be ruined. (01/04/2006)

You can purchase a bottle of TaRnex liquid at your local Walgreens. I use it for most all of my silver and it works wonderfully. Pour a small amount in a glass cup or container and you may just want to do a small part of the bracelet say the end of it in a bit of the cleaner to make sure it doesn't harm it. I have never used it on zirconias. I would recommend you do it outside as the TaRnex does have an unsavory smell to it. Once the tarnish is gone I would recommend a good silver cream to clean it up. Good luck. cmc (01/05/2006)

Tarnex works great, but just be careful - it can ruin pearls and synthetic stones. Don't dip or soak the jewelry item (use a piece of cotton and wipe it on, then rinse.) I ruined a vintage art nouveau silver pin by leaving it too long in Tarnex. (01/12/2006)

A jewelry polishing cloth has two sides to it, one side to remove tarnish and one to polish and shine afterwards. You can find them at Wal-Mart and they are inexpensive. (01/13/2006)
