Once you've made the leap into reselling silver jewelry wholesale, you need to pay close attention to the care of your merchandise. Since you're buying in bulk you'll need to learn the ins and outs of caring for silver jewelry. This will help lengthen the lifespan of your products and educate your customers on their new purchases.

After buying silver jewelry wholesale it is crucial to keep your merchandise from tarnishing. Sterling silver is known for tarnishing, and while this does not mean your rings or earrings are low quality, it should encourage you to take better care of them compared to other metals that need little to no maintenance. If you leave sterling silver out, as opposed to in a jewelry box or velvet pouch, you'll soon see the onset of tarnish.

A Simple Remedy

Should your items begin to tarnish before they can be sold, make an extra effort to keep them in airtight containers or if need be, brush them occasionally with a silver cloth. These cloths are commonly found at jewelry stores, though your wholesale dealer may provide them. The cloths remove tarnish instantly from the jewelry.

Be sure to pass this information on to your customers. Flea market shoppers that purchase from silver jewelry wholesale merchants need to be aware of the proper methods of caring for their jewelry. Without instructions, consumers may blame the tarnishing on the quality of goods you are selling, which in turn will hinder them from making a second visit.
