If you're looking to add a bit of flair to your wardrobe, it doesn't get much better than a set of silver cufflinks. These accessories will make any shirt and tie combination look more stylish, whether you're wearing them with a tuxedo or putting on your best work suit. Read on for everything you need to know about cleaning and maintaining this classic piece of men's fashion attire.
Characteristics of High-Quality Cufflinks
Good quality cufflinks are usually made from materials such as brass or stainless steel; however, the ‘best of the best’ cufflinks are made from sterling silver. Sterling silver cufflinks should weigh a little more than other materials.
A high-quality pair includes beautiful details like a unique shape/design or embossing around its edges or tail; these details give any item an extra bit of panache without being too showy or distracting from whatever outfit you're wearing with them (or any occasion).
How to Clean Silver Cufflinks
To keep your silver cufflinks clean, use a dry cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt that might have accumulated. If needed, you can use a soft toothbrush to clean any hard-to-reach areas. This will ensure that all of the grooves where dirt and grime can collect are cleaned thoroughly. Otherwise, just wipe them down with a damp cloth and let them air dry before storing.
Cufflinks should be cleaned regularly if they become tarnished or dirty. You can use a silver polishing cloth to clean them, and then store them in a box so that they don't get scratched again.
To polish your sterling silver cufflinks, take your cufflinks out of their box and place them face down on a soft surface (like an old towel). This will prevent scratches on both sides while polishing and buffing them. Next, apply a very small amount of polish in circular motions until all areas are covered evenly - do not overdo it though otherwise you risk damaging the metal finish/plating (the same goes for using too much water). Wipe the polish from the cufflinks carefully using a dry and soft cloth.
Silver is more durable than you might think, but it does scratch easier than other metals like gold and platinum—and scratches can ruin the appearance and value of your cufflinks. So please avoid wearing these precious accessories while exercising or playing sports.
Storing your Sterling Silver Cufflinks
You should take care to keep your cufflinks in a safe place. They should not be left loose or left on the dresser, as they could get lost or damaged. For more information on cleaning your cufflinks or other men’s jewellery, click here.
