Q: How do I care for my jewelry?
A: Gold filled chain and wire stays shiny and bright gold. Those who can wear gold can wear gold filled jewelry without any allergic reactions. Gold filled is made with a layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal. This is much different than gold plating which wears off quickly and tarnishes showing the base metal. It takes years to wear down the gold in gold filled jewelry.
Bronze and brass are solid metals that can tarnish quickly when exposed to skin, sweat and salt. Some like the patina they develop and some like to keep it shiny. Using an inexpensive polishing cloth is a great way to brighten the metal and protect stones. Overtime your skin and oils will polish the metal and keep the patina it creates.
Keep your jewelry out of the bathroom and other humid places preferable storing it in a bag between wearing. Avoid wearing while showering, swimming or in other extremely humid environments.
