Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted and, therefore, delicate. Please exercise great care to enjoy your piece for years and years.
To clean brass and keep it shiny, we love the ketchup trick. Because of the acidity in ketchup, it has the ability to remove dirt and debris from your solid brass pieces rather quickly. Simply run your brass jewelry under warm water and using a soft bristle old toothbrush, scrub the piece with a dab of ketchup. Rinse the piece thoroughly and dry it immediately with a soft cloth so as not to create water marks. Continue the process until you reach the desired shine.
Our sterling silver items are solid silver and can be cleaned using a silver polish or jewelry polishing cloth. Similarly, our 14k gold pieces are solid gold and can be polished with a specified gold polish or jewelry polishing cloth.
For the absolute best way to clean your jewelry, we suggest leaving the job to a professional.
