Removing scratches from silver?

Does anyone know how to remove scratches from a strerling silver bracelet?
Is there some sort of cloth or anything? Mine has visible scratches that must have come from me wearing mine at work and typing on the computer. It rubs on the desk.

With sterling, you have a chance as it's solid silver. I'd try a silver polish. It's an abrasive that will take off scratches or at least make them less visible, depending on how deep they are.

If that doesn't work, take them to a jeweler and he can polish them out.

I don't know that you can remove them. Perhaps a good jeweler would be the one to do it correctly. But if you want to refurbish the bracelet a bit, you can use the stuff that the people at Replacements Ltd. use.

It's a product called NEVR-DULL. I've been using it for years on all my silver flatware and all my other silver pieces. It can make the ugliest piece look almost new. Here's a link that tells you where it can be found, along with some information on the product: find it here.

Thanks Andy. I don't think they are deep,just a surface scratch.

Thank you too, Katie!!
