Over time, most brass, copper and silver metal products will slowly tarnish. This means that they will deepen and darken in colour, and will not look like the shiny piece that you originally purchased.
Here are our tips for keeping them looking new:
- Rub a lemon slice over your piece, rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
- One of the worst things you can do to metal jewelry is to wear it near or in water. This applies while showering, going to the pool, and going to the beach.
- When not being worn, store your jewelry in a clean and dry place.
