Maintaining bronze and silver jewellery requires a tiny bit more work than gold, which is the only true stainless metal. Oxydisation happens when silver and bronze come into contact with air, water and grease, but his general "wear and tear" is easily remedied. Here are our tips!
Keep your jewellery in a dedicated jewellery box, and maybe a jewellery cloth, to avoid unnecessary contact with other harmful substances.
Be sure to remove your jewellery when cleaning, exercising, going swimming ect...
Make sure you do not spray your perfume onto your jewellery, and use a soap with a neutral PH level (if you do not remove your jewellery in the shower)
