It is the nature of brass to evolve and tarnish over time. Some love this antiqued, darker look, while others prefer to keep their jewelry bright and shiny. Humidity, products on your skin, and your bodies natural chemistry are some of the things that speed up this process.
To avoid oxidation, remove jewelry before showering, working out, or using sprays of any kind. When not wearing your jewelry we recommend storing in a sealed bag in a dry area away from sunlight and heat.
Clean unwanted tarnish and darker spots using a polish pad. Simply buff with the pad until the tarnish is lifted and the piece becomes shiny again. If pieces become heavily tarnished, we recommend using ‘Brasso’ - an affordable cleaning product found at most hardware shops and is excellent for removing stubborn marks and tarnish. You can also use a baking soda and lemon paste.
