So you've shopped at Fairley Bohemian and stocked up your boho jewellery collection. Well, congratulations! You have yourself a piece of boho fashion jewellery that is going to be your go-to piece you'll grab every time when delving into your jewellery collection for years to come.
Now you want to know how to keep it looking boho chic, right? Well we've got a few tips for you!
Why has my silver ring changed colour? Why does copper and brass look dull over time?
Whilst silver isn’t corrosive like iron, it can be damaged and tarnished easily when exposed to moisture and the sulfides in the air. As a result, silver pieces need constant maintenance. This is not just silver, all metals commonly used when crafting jewellery change colour including brass and copper which are commonly used for their beautiful colours in bohemian jewellery. This is an unavoidable natural oxidisation process that happens over time.
How do I stop my jewellery changing colour?
If you want that magnificent colour to last, here are some tips for keeping your boho chic silver jewellery shining bright:
✬ The best way to prevent this is to keep your silver jewellery in an airtight container when not in use in it's own box, away from other jewellery
✬ Don't wear your boho jewellery every day - like us, we all need a break!
✬ Don't shower, bathe or swim in your jewellery and try to avoid contact with water.
✬ Store jewellery out of direct sunlight
✬ Don't wear boho silver jewellery when sleeping, working out or doing sports
If you follow these simple tips, your boho silver jewellery will stay shiny and beautiful for years to come!
So... we realise and wholly understand that it is not realistic to follow all of these tips... we are all human after all!
