To keep your piece looking it's best please remove before bathing or swimming and avoid spraying perfumes, hairsprays or other chemicals as these may cause discoloration.
The inherent nature of metal causes silver and especially brass to develop a natural patina over time from exposure to oxygen and moisture from the skin. You can restore the luster on the surface of our metal pieces using a treated polishing cloth. The main metals we use in our designs are sterling silver, jewelers brass and gold filled and gold plated material. Both gold fill and gold plate are 14k gold over brass but gold fill has a thicker layer of gold than gold plate. To preserve the look of the jewelry, keep it clean and dry, and avoid contact with any chemicals.
