Natural brass will oxidize, or tarnish over time. This means it will turn a more muted shade of gold. In order to maintain a more shiny finish, store your brass jewelry in an air tight bag or wrapped in a cloth bag.
Remove jewelry before showering, swimming, or exercising, and avoid storing it in the bathroom (moisture and humidity are not great for brass). Remove jewelry before applying hairspray or perfume, or working with household cleaners.
Cleaning Brass Jewelry:
If you'd like to shine your brass jewelry up, there are a few easy ways to do it!
1. Use the polishing cloth that came in your order.
2. Use a brass polishing liquid. We recommend Brasso.
3. Make a paste of baking soda, water and lemon juice and gently rub it onto the piece with a soft cloth. Wash the mixture off using running water, then dry and buff with a clean cloth. Be sure to dry it completely.
