Over time and through daily wear, jewelry ultimately ages and tarnishes. In order to maintain your jewelry’s luster, we recommend storing your jewelry in an airtight container, such as a plastic baggie. To evade excessive tarnishing, be sure to avoid storing your pieces in extreme heat or humidity and always apply lotions or perfumes before putting on any jewelry. Remove your jewelry before showering or exercising to avoid damage.
Sterling silver and gold-filled pieces inevitably tarnish over time, but these metals can be polished back to their original shine using regular toothpaste and an old soft toothbrush. We recommend a soft brush as it effectively cleanses and polishes the ornate details on our wrapped and studded items more than a cloth would achieve. Simply brush a small amount of toothpaste onto the jewelry to create a light foam, and rinse thoroughly with warm water. Dry with a soft cotton cloth.
Bronze naturally tarnishes over time, but unlike silver and gold, we believe bronze behaves much like a fine wine and improves with age. We recommend that you actually avoid polishing bronze and instead enjoy the beauty of its natural aging process.
