Jewelry Care


JEWELRY CARE:

All Afrohemien jewelry is made by hand with brass, gold filled, sterling silver, plated metals, as well as vintage chain and stones, please handle your jewelry with care.

Brass is a natural metal that can oxidize to a darker warmer gold over time. To remove any oxidization and restore it back to a shiny gold color, you can use a soft polishing cloth.

For more difficult tarnishing you can use a fine steel wool pad or a nail buff block to restore color.

To prevent oxidization, your jewelry should be kept away from water, oils and humid environments. Protect jewelry from abrasive surfaces and avoid contact with moisture, body sweat, lotions and perfumes. Store in a secure, dry place between wears. 

Gold Filled: Gold filled chains will not tarnish. They can be cleaned with a soft cloth if necessary.

Gold PlatedAs with all metals, gold plated and silver plated metals will tarnish over time, these metals can be kept clean with a dry cloth.
