Yes, in the world of jewelry it is inevitable! When we expose our jewelry to air, lotions, water etc. it will most definitely cause metals to oxidize, tarnish and change color. This is particularly true of brass and sterling silver! So give them a little extra TLC!
#1) Store in an airtight plastic baggie, this will help them to not tarnish as quickly. Cosmetics, oils and perfumes can also be contributing factors that will cause pieces to tarnish more quickly than normal.
#2) To clean 14k Gold Filled or Rose Gold Filled Pieces soak the pieces for 2-3 minutes and wipe dry with a soft cotton cloth.
#3) To clean Sterling Silver and Brass pieces we suggest using jewelry cleaning cloths.
Please follow or guidelines to keep your jewelry looking shiny and NEW for years to come!
