Jewelry Care

Blue Patina Jewelry Care

The patina on this jewelry is a surface treatment. While it has been sealed, avoid submerging in water or vigorous activity while wearing. Expect some copper to shine through during wear.

Copper and Brass Jewelry Care
Expect some patina on these pieces with age.  The more often they are worn, the less they will patina, although factors like body heat and body chemistry can cause oxidation.  If you’d like to polish any copper or brass pieces, use a polishing cloth. We recommend a Sunshine Cloth. Brass jewelry without stones can be cleaned with a solution of 1 to 4 white vinegar to water and a little dish soap.  Soak in for a few minutes, wipe clean, and dry.

Silver Jewelry Care
Many silver pieces are intentionally oxidized for an antique look. However, to polish bright silver pieces, use a silver polishing cloth.

Gold and Gold-Fill Jewelry Care
All gold and gold-fill may be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth.
