Great Art Gets Trapped in Terrible Frames. And the Same Thing Happens to Diamonds. We Can Fix That on September 12.

Experience the Magic of Silver Restoration: July 19th & 20th at The Jewelry Box of Lake Forest

When silver items are newly made, they’ve got a gorgeous gleam that’s hard to resist. But time is not kind to silver: tarnish can form on your tea service, flatware, and other silver items. Tarnished silver appears dull at first, eventually darkening to a deep black shade with time. This tarnish doesn’t hurt your silver item, but it does make it look much less attractive. Lurking underneath the tarnish, your…
