Silver Stonks Product Care
Silver is a delicate metal that quickly scratches and nicks. When exposed to air, humidity, or moisture, it can tarnish. These unflattering marks and surface scratches may reduce the value of your silver. To keep your silver safe, we recommend wearing cotton jeweler’s gloves and using special sterling silver cloths. Some experts also suggest washing the silver once a month.
Some people like to keep their silver in a bank vault or a safety deposit box. These services cost a monthly or annual fee. It is important to choose a location with stable, managed environments to protect your silver from unfavorable conditions.
Others like to keep their silver bars in a safe or strongbox at home. Storing your silver at home provides you with continuous access to your silver and makes it more accessible, but it also comes with risks. If you choose to store your silver at home, keep it in a cool, dry, dark area. It is also a good idea to consider any security concerns and keep these possible issues in mind:
Purchase a fire-resistant box or safe, but keep in mind that your silver will melt in the event of a fire.
In the event of a break-in, make sure your safe is well hidden.
Don’t tell anyone that you have bought silver, especially if you keep it at home.
If you decide to keep your silver at home, we suggest contacting an insurance company to ensure that your money is covered in the event of a disaster.
Whether you keep your silver bars at home or in a bank, we recommend throwing some silica gel in with them to protect against humidity.
