My question is: does the paper used in set-up jewelry boxes emit
Sulfur is commonly used in paper processing. Unless something
specifically states that the paper product is created in a special
way, I would assume it contains sulfur. To me, this means it can
contribute to tarnishing.
One solution I’ve used, which may strike some as tacky, is to place
the jewelry in a little jewelry style Ziploc bag inside the box. I’ve
never had any complaints or comments, but still strikes me as less
than ideal presentation.
Several months ago I bought some “silver cloth” from a local fabric
supplier. It is treated with tarnish resistant chemicals, and used
to line silverware chests. My intent was to make little drawstring
pouches with my logo either silk-screened or embroidered on them.
Another project sitting idle in the wings. I discovered the little
portable sewing machine we received as a gift doesn’t work!
