I have some scratches on my silver frame. Is there a way to remove them or make them not as noticeable?

    Lightly sand the frame and then spray paint with a silver paint. There are many color choices. From flat to chrome.

    Please don’t spray paint silver

  • I would polish up the silver with silver polish and see if that helps

    Hi Amy, try this

    Step 1

    Mix baking soda with a few drops of water until a thick, smooth paste is formed. Make sure all water is fully incorporated into the baking soda so the mixture is no longer grainy prior to using.

    Step 2

    Use a polishing cloth or pure cotton rag to apply the baking soda paste to the sterling silver bracelet. Rub the paste into the bracelet with vigor until the silver begins to shine. Check the silver after several rubs to see if the scratches have faded.

    Step 3

    Wipe the polished bracelet dry with a clean, dry polishing rag or pure cotton cloth. If scratches remain, repeat until the scratches are gone.

    If it is silver plate or sterling, check with a jeweler to see if there is something you can do about the scratches if they aren't too deep. If it is a silver color or stainless or another metal or plastic, fill the scratch and spray paint the frame with a paint for what it is made of.

    Get them polished out by a Silversmith - Jeweller!

    Go to a jeweler who is experienced with silver/silver plated items and ask if the scratches can be removed.
