Caring for Your Silver Buckle and Buckle Sets
In general, you can expect your silver buckle to tarnish over time. Some buckles are designed so the tarnish, called patina, actually enhances the design, giving the piece depth and character. The experts suggest using a silver-polish cloth to put the shine back into your buckle. If you wish to remove all the patina, dip-polish can be used on sterling buckles but will likely remove the thin finish from less expensive, electroplated pieces. None of our buckles or jewelry is electroplated. All are solid sterling silver.
