Is there a way to tumble Sterling silver chain?

by Riley

I was wondering if you can tumble thin Sterling silver chain? If not, how else can I polish it?

Stacy's Answer:

Hi Riley. You could wrap your chain around a spool or dowel and tumble it and secure it, but if it comes undone you could end up with a tangled mess.

I recommend that you simply pull the chain through your favorite Sterling silver polishing cloth such as a Sunshine cloth or one that's been impregnated with a tarnish-removing chemical.
