Care Instructions

Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc. Did you know that brass is also a sustainable material? Over 90% of brass world wide is recycled. We love it because it is durable, beautiful and more affordable than gold :)

Since brass will oxidize, giving the pieces a unique and natural patina over time, here are a few tips to keeping your pieces looking their best:

  1. To delay the oxidation process and keep the pieces as polished a possible, store your jewelry in the cloth bag wee send and keep it away from heat or sunlight
  2. Avoid contact with water, lotion and perfume. They don't mix well with brass. Also, remember to take your jewelry off before physical activity or going to sleep

If you prefer a bright sheen, they are two ways to give your brass a quick polish:

  1. Use a brass polish, like Brasso and wipe with a paper towel or soft cloth.
  2. Mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto the surface of the brass with a cloth, rinse and buff dry!
