How do I care for my Jewelry?
Sterling Silver, Copper and Brass jewelry are all left natural (unsealed) and will naturally oxidize/tarnish. Oxidation can be affected by things such as heat, sunlight, sweat, chlorine water, chemicals and cosmetics. Avoid wearing your jewelry in the shower/swimming and keeping jewelry in a sealed plastic bag when not being worn to help slow tarnishing.
For some people the acids in your skin combine with metal and make copper or silver salts which can leave a green/gray color against your ear. They are harmless and can simply be washed off. Cleaning your jewelry often will also help (especially earrings!)
Natural patina may or may not be desirable depending on your preference but they can always be cleaned. To clean tarnish from a piece I recommend using the “sunshine” cloth included with most orders. Pieces with a brushed finish can also be cleaned with any abrasive type cleaner (like bar keepers friend) and a scrubby or toothbrush. For polished finishes any type of liquid metal/jewelry cleaner and a cloth should work.
Gold-filled jewelry is tarnish resistant, but its still best to avoid moisture or chemicals. If they need to be cleaned, using just soap and water is ok. Use the polishing cloth minimally on gold filled jewelry.
Patina Care-Black/Brown Pieces
Patina is only a surface treatment. It is sealed, but it is still possible for it to fade, usually on areas that are against the skin. Do not use the sunshine cloth or anything abrasive on pieces with patin
