Caring and Preserving Your Brass Jewelry

We often get asked, "How do I care for my brass jewelry, and how do I keep it shining?".

So here are a few simple steps to maintain its shine and prevent tarnishing:

  1. Clean: Wipe your brass jewelry with a soft cloth to remove dirt and fingerprints. If it's heavily tarnished, you can use a mixture of equal parts of lemon juice and baking soda to clean it. Rinse thoroughly with water and dry completely with a soft cloth.
  2. Store: Store brass jewelry in a cool, dry place, away from humidity. Consider using a jewelry box or the Treasure From Afar cloth bag your piece came in to prevent it from coming into contact with other metal items that could cause scratches.
  3. Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals: Brass can be sensitive to certain chemicals, so it's important to remove your jewelry before applying lotions, perfumes, or other beauty products.
  4. Polish: To keep your brass jewelry looking its best, we prefer natural cleaning remedies; make a salt, flour, and vinegar paste. Mix 1/2 cup white vinegar and one tablespoon salt; make sure you dissolve the salt. Add two tablespoons of flour-rub the paste onto the jewelry and leave on for approximately 10 minutes. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Following these simple steps can help keep your brass jewelry looking new for years to come.
