Exposure to oxygen, moisture + natural oils will cause metals, particularly brass + silver, to tarnish/develop a natural patina over time. To keep your pieces vibrant + looking their best, please remove them prior to swimming, bathing, exercising, etc., and avoid contact with perfumes, hair products, + other chemicals that may cause discoloration.
There are a variety of natural ways to polish silver + brass + we recommend a simple search of reputable resources that offer instructions on how to keep your metals clean + polished. If your order contains jewelry handcrafted with raw brass components, we will include a small starter polishing cloth with your order (if we have them in stock). The polishing cloth is packaged either in a small eco-friendly, biodegradable Greenline bag or a small, 100% cotton muslin bags that are eco-friendly, biodegradable, reusable + made in the USA using US grown virgin Cotton.
