Caring For Your Copper Jewelry

Copper is a beautiful natural material that is also affordable.
It makes wonderful pieces of jewelry.

For some people however, copper can leave a strange tint of green on your skin. This is actually normal. Copper reacts naturally with our salty skin, which can be created whenever we sweat. The green stains are caused by copper oxidation when in contact with sweat glands.

That said, people’s reaction to copper cannot be predicted. Some people will have no problem wearing copper, and others will. 

The green stains can be washed off with soap and water. Otherwise you will notice that they are absorbed overnight by your body.

To maintain the pink color and shine, polish your copper pieces with the polishing pad that is included in your order.
