BRASS HEALTH BENEFITS
Brass contains copper and zinc, minerals essential for the human body. Some believe that wearing brass jewelry can improve health and help reduce copper and zinc deficiency as well as assist in alleviating arthritis and joint pain.
BRASS CLEANING AND CARE
When brass oxidizes it begins to tarnish. To clean tarnished brass and to restore its shine, use a cleaner that contains acidic ingredients, such as, lemon, vinegar, even baking soda. (Brasso works as well, however, we have found that using natural household items are just as efficient).
GOLD PLATED BRASS
A heavy coat of 14k gold has been electroplated over brass (copper and zinc). The plating thickness we use is some of thickest in the industry. Plated jewelry still needs gentle love and care. Avoid getting your jewelry wet, or coming into extended contact with body lotions etc.
