A few things of note about Marmalade Jewellery:
This collection is made entirely of sterling silver and bronze. A patina has been applied to the metals in order to give it an authentically aged look, and to emphasize the fine details of the images. With time and wear this patina will age - it will likely lighten in places that are in contact with your skin, and darken in the recessed areas. The bronze may darken slightly when especially humid, or when exposed to certain lotions or perfumes, but can be easily polished back to its original shine. To polish, rub with a baking soda/water paste and a soft toothbrush, or use a silver polishing cloth. It's safe to wear your jewellery in the shower, but best to take it off for swimming in pools or hot tubs.
This collection is made of brused sterling silver and an resin coating. The sterling silver can be cleaned using a soft bristled tooth brush and a baking soda/water paste, or toothpaste. Do not use harsh dips or polishing cloths as these will remove the matte finish.
Chains, or other all silver items, can be dipped, cleaned with a cloth, or cleaned using the old tin foil/baking soda trick! Simply lay your pieces on a piece of tin foil (sculped into a dish shape), sprinkle with baking soda, and then pour boiling water over top. A reaction occurs and strips your silver of any tarnish.
