We want your jewelry to stay looking clean and timeless! Like any jewelry, some care taking is required. To take the best care of your jewelry, see the instructions below.
Brass is a material that naturally grows dull and tarnishes over time. You may notice that the brass develops a green layer of tarnish- this is called patina. Many people like this characteristic of brass as it can add a unique look to the piece of jewelry. However, to return brass to its original shine can usually be done quickly and easily with a few common household items.
For a basic clean, warm soapy water can usually be used to rinse off your brass pieces. Make sure to thoroughly dry each piece after rinsing in order to avoid water spots. This method is useful if you would like to clean your jewelry and still preserve the patina.
For a stronger clean, you can use lemons and salt- who knew?! Simply slice the lemon lengthwise, sprinkle some salt on the lemon and rub the brass on the lemon. A toothbrush can be used to scrub the brass and to reach the hard-to-reach areas of the jewelry. Rinse the lemon juice off of the jewelry with warm water immediately after cleaning so that the acidity from the lemons doesn't damage the brass surface. Thoroughly dry each piece with a soft towel.
