Most of our jewelry is made of gold, rose gold or silver-plated metal alloy (brass/copper), which is lead, chromium and nickel-free (excluding stainless steel). Like most metals (including .925 sterling silver), they can tarnish and discolor overtime.
To help delay tarnish, it’s best to avoid moist or wet conditions, such as while showering, taking a bath, swimming or during a sweaty workout. When you are not wearing your jewelry, it is best to store it in an airtight bag to help prevent tarnishing.
TIP: The best way to remove tarnish and get your jewelry shiny again, is to scrub lightly with soft toothpaste and a toothbrush, rinse with water and dry thoroughly immediately afterwards. (Note: Avoid using abrasives (i.e. toothpaste) on stainless steel pieces.)
