Jewelry made from brass, which is an alloy of zinc and copper, has a very distinctive and unique look. It can be a great accent to your outfit, whether you're wearing something casual or going out for the evening. When it comes to brass jewelry, however, one thing is certain: whether it is a necklace, bracelet, watch, earrings, or something else, your brass accessories will look their best when they are sparkling clean.
Brass can become tarnished or change color over time, and while this change can be seen as desirable to some (since it does give the jewelry an interesting look) you are not necessarily stuck with the tarnish forever. Along with certain cleaners that you can use to remove the tarnish, it can help if you store your jewelry in a zip lock baggie.
When cleaning brass jewelry, you will need to take care that you do it in the right way. There are several options that you may want to try next time your brass jewelry starts to look dull, dirty or tarnished.
If you are uncertain about a certain cleaning method, it might make you feel better to try them out on an inconspicuous area of the jewelry before treating the whole piece. Also, if your jewelry has any gemstones in it, find out what can safely be used on the stones to avoid ruining them.
