Pearl and Ivy's enameled jewelry is heat treated to ensure a durable finish, but we do suggest that you handle each piece with care so as not to scratch the surface. Earrings should be stored away from other jewelry for this reason, preferably in an airtight container to slow tarnishing. Please do not use chemical cleaners on the enameled pieces.
Should your raw brushed brass components become tarnished, you can gently remove this with brass polish such as Brasso (found inexpensively at most hardware stores) and a damp sponge or cotton pad.
Our verdigris finishes are meant to be rustic and may show signs of wear with time. We believe this is part of the beauty of this artisan patina, but again, we suggest handling with care to preserve the integrity of the finish. Please do not use chemical cleaners on verdigris pieces since it may cause an unwanted color reaction.
