Tarnish is not a jewelry lover’s friend. Your customers don’t really know how it happens or what to do about it; they just know that it looks bad and keep them from wearing their favorite jewelry. If your customers are flummoxed about tarnish, here is a handy list of frequently asked questions that you can share on your website or via social media to help them solve the tarnish problem.
Anti-tarnish fabric is used to make pouches and to line jewelry boxes; anti-tarnish strips can be added to your storage to increase the protection.
