Brass, Bronze & Pewter Care
Most of our brass and bronze jewelry is nickel and lead free, and while it will tarnish with wear, it is generally easily polished up to its original lustre with just a little love.Vintage components are a bit unpredictable. Be aware that body chemistry is the biggest factor in how our brass and bronze jewelry wears, and body chemistry varies greatly.
Here are tips on how to keep your brass and bronze jewelry looking its best for years to come. Do not wear your brass and bronze jewelry when working out, swimming or showering, as water has a quick effect of tarnishing. We suggest using either a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner or a mild dish soap and water on your metal jewelry. Always make sure to dry your jewelry completely after cleaning.
Do not use any products that contain alcohol, this can ruin the finish.
If your jewelry is very tarnished, you can use a mix of baking soda, lemon juice and water. Scrub it on with a soft cloth or toothbrush, wipe off, and dry.
After cleaning, you can buff your jewelry with a soft cloth to give it a nice finish.
