Bronze and silver tend to oxidize and naturally patina over time. To prevent bronze from turning skin a blue-green color, paint the edge of your jewelry (the inside of a ring band, edge of a necklace pendant) with clear nail polish. To delay oxidation, keep your jewelry away from moisture, shower steam, and water activities. When you're not wearing a piece, it's best to keep it stored in a clean, dry place (a plastic bag works!)

To keep your jewelry shiny, we recommend using metal polish (W.J. Haggerty 100 All Metal Polish) and a polishing cloth (Sunshine).
