I work mostly with Sterling Silver and Jewelers Brass, but I also use Gold Fill and White Gold upon request. Exposure to natural elements such as air or moisture over time can cause these metals to tarnish. While some like the look of a natural tarnish/patina, many others would like to retain the polish & shine.
There are a few ways to delay or prevent this natural oxidization.
Be sure to remove your jewelry when showering, swimming, or applying lotions/oils.
Taking care of your piece will ensure it’s longevity. The best way to clean your jewelry is with a polishing cloth.
I coat all Brass pieces with either Renaissance Wax or ProtectaClear; a clear, skin-safe, protective coating that helps prevent tarnish, skin discoloration, and reactions. In addition, all Brass earrings are made with Sterling Silver hypoallergenic ear wire.
