It is probable that you are one of the many people who learned the English alphabet at a very young age.
Your parents might have taught you to recite the alphabet as well as sing ‘The Alphabet Song.’
But the time you reach pre-school age, you know most of the letters of the English alphabet and can form simple words.
The 26 letters of the modern English alphabet derive directly from the 24 letters of the Classical Latin alphabet .
The development of the English alphabet had influences from the Semitic, Phoenician, Greek and Roman scripts.
It’s quite interesting to learn how each letter was formed.
The letter ‘I’ was called ‘yod’ in 1000 BC. It meant hand and arm.
The Greeks called it ‘iota’ and made it vertical. In its evolution, it turned into a straight line around 700 BC.
JEWELRY CARE (STERLING SILVER)
Sterling silver is an alloyed metal, normally made of 92.5% pure silver and other metals.
Sterling silver is a popular metal because of its affordability and malleability, but it also tarnishes quickly because of its composition.
If you’re looking at a piece of jewelry that is darkened or appears dirty, then your silver has tarnished; but, there’s no need to neglect this piece or get rid of it!
Tarnish is simply the result of a chemical reaction with oxygen or sulfur particles in the air. Knowing what’s harmful to your sterling silver jewelry is the best way to combat tarnish.
Here are some simple care and cleaning tips as below:
● Wear it often: your skin’s natural oils will help keep silver jewelry shiny.
● Remove during household chores: Like chlorinated water, perspiration, and rubber will accelerate corrosion and tarnish. It’s a good idea to remove sterling silver completely before cleaning.
● Soap and water: Because of the gentleness of soap & water. Available to shower, remember to rinse off after using shower / shampoo.
● Finish with a polish: After you’ve given your jewelry a good cleaning, you can finish the process by using a polishing cloth that’s specifically for sterling silver.
● Keep in a cool, dark place: as mentioned earlier, sunlight, heat and moisture accelerate tarnishing. Be sure to keep your silver in a cool, dark place.
● Store pieces individually: storing your pieces separately prevents any chance of jewelry scratching or tangling with each other.
Storing sterling silver in the complimentary Meet U® gift pouch will help prevent tarnish.
