History of Anti-Tarnish Paper

For many years, the silver industry and the jewelry industry found it difficult to find something that was non-abrasive and carried anti-tarnishing properties. It almost seemed as if these industries had to choose between abrasive anti-tarnish paper and other products or those that damaged the silver and jewelry products and were dangerous to handle. Most manufacturers and retailers chose not to use the abrasive anti-tarnish paper or other products because they found this choice was unacceptable. Fortunately, however, Lucent Technologies created a technology that includes a highly effective anti-tarnish paper alternative: an anti-tarnish polymer that is safe and effective.

Anti-tarnish paper constructed in square forms is the most commonly used variation as it can easily be used for storage, shipping and packaging of silver and jewelry. Before this innovative product came to market, some retailers used an anti-tarnish polish that would be directly applied to the jewelry which would leave chemical deposits on the items being protected. Once the new anti-tarnish paper came to fruition, the industry turned to anti-tarnish polymer product.


Intercept Silver & Jewelry Care Co. is the leading distributor of this highly effective and safe anti-tarnish polymer and has a reputation in the industry that is second to none. Relied on by companies such as NASA, the Royal Mint of England, Raytheon, the Home Shopping Network, The Guggenheim Museum and many other jewelry manufacturers around the world, the anti-tarnish products created by Intercept Technology™ are considered by many to be the finest in the industry.

While other anti-tarnish paper products on the market use charcoal, volatile corrosion inhibitors, "vapor phase inhibitors", nitrates, nitrites or amines to "protect" jewelry and other precious metals, Intercept does not use any of these products in our polymers that protects silver and jewelry.

The jewelry and precious metal industry longed for anti-tarnish paper or an alternative that is reliable, safe and easy to use - Lucent Technologies created the technology and Intercept Silver & Jewelry Care Company delivers that technology to the industry in a complete line of anti-tarnish paper products.
