Care and Maintenance

General Care and Maintenance

It is recommended to minimize interactions with salt water, chlorine and chemicals from perfumes, oils and lotions whenever possible. Pieces will develop patinas at different rates, depending on the wearer’s skin and body chemistry. When not in use, give your pieces a quick clean with lukewarm water and mild soap. Completely pat dry with a soft cloth, and put away in a box or airtight bag to minimize tarnishing. Use a polishing cloth to keep pieces clean and shiny.

Sterling Silver/Gold

These precious metal finishes are best cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Finish with a soft polishing cloth, and store your jewelry clean and dry. Do not use abrasive cleansers on these metals.

Natural Brass/Copper

Natural brass and copper are wonderful to work with and wear, as they develop a rich patina over time. Cleaning with lukewarm water and mild soap, and storing your jewelry clean and dry will keep the piece clean, but preserve the patina. If you’d like to bring back the shiny, new finish of your copper or brass, rub it with a bit of lemon juice and water. Rinse and pat dry before storing.
