If your metal piece starts to tarnish we highly suggest gently rubbing it with a microfiber cloth to bring back the shine!
You can also make a little paste with lemon/vinegar and baking soda. Gently rub the paste on your piece. After, rinse the paste with warm water and dawn soap using a toothbrush.
Just make sure you are gentle in the cleaning process.
STORAGE / CARE
For gold or silver jewelry we suggest keeping it in a ziplock bag or the cotton bag. Some metals oxidize just from being exposed to the air. In general most jewelry does better is you take it out before a shower, pool or ocean.

Gold-filled jewelry is the closest thing to solid gold. Gold-filled pieces contain more than 100x more gold than gold-plated jewelry. For an item to be classified as gold-filled, 5% of the total weight of the item must be made up of gold. The layer of gold is much thicker and stronger, therefore more resistant to tarnishing. If you're looking to invest in a lifetime piece, this is for you!
