These earrings are made with 100% bare, untreated copper. They will oxidize naturally with time. At your request, I can seal these earrings with a treatment of Renaissance Wax. This slows the Oxidizing process and will need to be reapplied over time. Copper can easily be brightened again with average household solutions, or a Sunshine Polishing cloth.
Alternately, I can also oxidize these for you if you prefer! Just let me know.
If you have a metal allergy, I can change the ear wires out for surgical steel at no extra charge.
If you prefer gold or sterling silver, please message me for a quote on the alteration.
Copper is a metal that oxidizes and antiques with exposure to air, water and skin. It requires about as much maintenance as sterling silver to keep it shiny.
Do not sleep in your jewelry. Wash it from time to time with a little Dawn to remove oils and acids from your skin. Restore shine by polishing with a Sunshine Cloth.
