The chemicals that make up silver, when it comes into contact with water and moisture, cause it to become cloudy and eventually blacken. For something as priceless as a Celtic jewelry piece, it does not hurt to invest a few dollars to get a cleaning solvent that is specially designed to clean silver jewelry.

This is because these cleaning solvents are also made out of chemicals which are specially designed to remove the dirt and grime that had collected onto the Celtic jewelry piece.
