It is important to The Giving Keys that our products maintain their quality throughout the years.
In order to ensure that your item is kept in its best condition, clean as often as needed using a polishing cloth on any metal parts to reduce tarnishing. Keep in mind that due to the personal pH levels of an individual’s skin, jewelry may tarnish more quickly for some than for others.
Since exposure to air can also oxidize jewelry, we recommend storing items from The Giving Keys in a pouch rather than leaving them fully exposed to the air. The Giving Keys products are packaged carefully in complimentary pouches and protective boxes - use these as an easy storage option to keep your pieces safe.
Due to the nature of raw brass, bronze, and copper used for our chains and other components, you may see slight variations in the color on particular styles. In order to remove any tarnishing (and even out the color if needed) use a polishing cloth.
Keep your Raw Copper jewelry clean by occasionally washing in warm, soapy water and polishing with a dry, soft cloth.
Avoid excessive exposure to water and sunlight. We recommend removing your jewelry before washing dishes, showering, heading to the beach, etc.
Do not spray on perfume when wearing your fashion jewelry. If you have sprayed on perfume, wait for it to totally dry before putting on your jewelry.
Some people who are known to have acidic skin may cause metallic accessories to oxidize/darken. If one is acidic in body chemistry, please do not wear your fashion jewelry against bare skin or expose the pieces to sweat.
It is best to not immerse the fashion jewelry in chemically treated jewelry cleaner. To clean the jewelry from time to time, immerse the pieces in a mild detergent followed by rinsing with water and patting dry with a soft cloth.
If you live close to saltwater, know that this can also cause your jewelry to darken.
Please note - The Giving Keys will not be held responsible for any damages that may occur by foregoing the above recommendations.
The Giving Keys is committed to protecting the freedom of all of the workers who make our products. Through a partnership with Made In A Free World, we are using their FRDM® platform to understand and address any supply chain labor risks.
