Caring for your bronze jewellery

April 18, 2021

Hand made bronze jewelry pieces and polishing cloth

For most of my bronze only jewellery pieces, I intend for them to age gracefully.  This means that they are not treated with a sealant and that their colour will richen and deepen over time.  

In the photo above, the bronze on the left is newly made and polished - it's colour is lighter than the other two pieces.  It is also shinier than the other two.

To polish up bronze jewellery, the easiest way is to use a jeweller's cloth - a soft cloth that is impregnated with polishing compound.

After polishing, you can see that the two right side pieces are shinier, and that their colour has remained a deeper bronze.  

To keep your bronze jewelry shinier and lighter longer, when not wearing, store in a jewelry box or in a plastic bag that will keep the amount of air it is exposed to at a minimum.  

You can sign up to my email list to know when the newer (shinier) pieces are being released!
