Black spots are often noticed on silver pieces surface or even jewelry. Is there a way to eliminate those stains?
These stains result over time from chemical reactions when silver is exposed to air. It is a type of corrosion but not like rust that tarnishes metal. It can be removed easily.

It is a good idea to use warm water to gently wash silver jewelry, but it should be dried and polished with a soft cloth.
Also, silver or jewelry should not be touched if the skin is sweaty or when taking a shower، it should be kept away from woolen clothes and removed when cooking.

Silver cream or polish can be used to remove stains. Also there's another way at home :
Cover a glass bowl with aluminum foil and add a little hot water with a little salt and baking soda
Then immerse the silver piece for a few minutes.
When stains disappear, carefully clean the piece with water, then dry it with a soft cloth.
Avoid using toothpaste for disinfection, as it contains substances that may scratch silver or jewelry.
