There are various methods practiced currently that minimize or attempt to prevent the formation of tarnish such as alloying or plating with other elements such as Rhodium. None of the current methods eliminate tarnishing, nor are they cost effective and also cahnge the appearance of silver
Organic coatings protect silver by forming a physical barrier, and are generally used for storage and display of silver items.The main problem with these layers is that they are nearly always visible and if they are too thin they are not sufficiently protected.
Other methods include for storing silver in special storage materials such as certain polymers that react with sulfur to prevent its attack on silver. This type of method helps keep the silver in a reasonable condition only so long as it is kept within the storage materials.
Serenity's proprietary anti-tarnish treatment technology NEOSILVER provides a very cost effective biocompatible permanent treatment to silver without affecting the appearance of the silver in any way. It provides additional advantages to the treatment of silver jewelry wherein jewelry containing stones or other treatments such as enameling can undergo NEOSILVER treatment without affecting the non-silver items. NEOSILVER treatment preserves the fine appearance of silver and completely eliminates the need for platings such as Rhodium which are no cost effective and also change the appearance of silver.
