Why does jewellery tarnish?

Tarnishing is a natural process where metals react to chemicals such as oxygen and sulphur, known as oxidisation. Tarnish makes your metal jewellery dull and can leave a slight golden colour on your metals and will eventually create a black coating on the metal. The tarnishing process can happen at various speeds depending on how your jewellery has been stored and what elements it may be exposed to. There are many ways to remove dreaded tarnish and Town Talk products are one of our most popular brands to turn to for our customers.

Read our advice page for more in-depth information about the tarnishing process, as well as the many ways you can protect your pieces such as using wax and lacquer.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with our team who can help you choose the most suitable product for your needs.


Polishing Your Jewellery With Town Talk

Town Talk's polishing cloths are our go-to! They are an essential supply to keep at hand in your workshop or to keep stored for when your jewellery collection needs some TLC. Use them to buff your metal jewellery pieces to a high shine! Each cloth is impregnated with special anti-tarnishing agents which gives your pieces a lasting shine for longer.

These polishing cloths are also pocket size, so you can even take them on the go for when you notice your jewellery is looking a little dull.

The cloths are reusable and if you're a jeweller, they are perfect for giving your jewellery one last polish before it heads out the door. You can also include them in your orders to encourage your customers to look after their brand new jewellery - this could prevent them coming back to you wondering why their jewellery is dull or has turned black! Read more about the tarnishing process on our advice page and understand the contributing factors which could be speeding up the tarnishing process - hand lotion, sanitiser, cleaning products to name a few.

Town Talk Brass & Copper Polish

This polish is a must-have if you own or make your own brass or copper jewellery pieces. These metals will tarnish over time and lose their shine and lustre, so it's important to polish your pieces regularly to maintain their beauty.

This handy bottle of Town Talk's Brass & Copper Polish is brilliant to have to hand, to remove those stubborn marks and blemishes. Simply shake the bottle and apply the polish using a dry cloth, buffing away those stubborn marks. Finish by rinsing your pieces in water and polishing with a soft, clean cloth.


Preventing Tarnish With Town Talk

Town Talk Anti Tarnish Protection Silver Storage Strips

We love these handy anti-tarnish paper strips! If you're a jeweller you can pop them alongside your silver jewellery supplies as well as finished silver jewellery pieces to protect them from tarnishing. They help by absorbing pollutants in the air which will slow down the tarnishing process and keep your pieces shining for longer.

They are an ideal size for popping into jewellery boxes or plastic bags - although keep in mind that the tighter the seal the better this is for protecting your pieces. These particular strips also have a handy date section so you can keep track of when they need replacing which is every 3 months.

For protecting other metals, see our anti tarnish paper strips which are suitable for protecting silver, gold, copper, bronze, nickel, tin and plated metals.
