Over time, your brass and silver jewelry may darken into a beautiful patina. Exposure to oxygen, water, chemicals, and natural body oils contribute to this process. To slow the patina process, avoid keeping your jewelry in the bathroom and remove before bathing or swimming. Keep your jewelry clean and dry, and store in an airtight container such as a zip lock bag when not in use. Occasionally clean with soap and water, and dry thoroughly.
To remove patina and return metal back to its original tone, wipe with a jewelry cleaning cloth. A sample polishing cloth is included with each order and large polishing cloths are available to purchase on our site at a discounted price for your convenience. For stubborn patina not easily removed with a polishing cloth, please contact us for tips or to request a complimentary professional clean up of your jewelry.
Do not rub oxidized (black) silver with a jewelry cleaning cloth, because it will remove the oxidation and return the sterling silver to its natural white color.
We will gladly refresh your Slantt piece at no charge to you except the cost of shipping. We will clean and polish to original luster and restore oxidation to oxidized sterling silver elements. Please see our POLICIES page for information on repairs and replacement of single earrings.
