LONG TERM CARE OF YOUR BRANCH+BARREL JEWELRY
Our jewelry is hand crafted and designed to last you a life time. Here are some tips and tools to keep your jewelry looking it's best over time.
Store in a cool dry place and avoid excessive contact with water. Sterling Silver will naturally tarnish if exposed to air and moisture over a long period of time. This is called oxidation. It is best to store all your sterling silver jewelry in ziplock bags or other air-tight containers. The good news is that tarnishing is not permanent! Read on to learn more...
Use any jewelry polishing cloth to buff and shine your metal. This will rub away tarnishing on your sterling silver and any other metal that has collected dirt and oil from daily wear. A few gentle wipes and your metal will sparkle like new!
To maintain the wonderful hues and details within your wood, simply follow the instructions below. This will also aid in keeping your piece water resistant.
- Use any gentle oil such as coconut oil, raw linseed oil, mineral oil etc.
- Use a rag or terry cloth to gently rub/massage the oil into the wood with the direction of the grain (if possible).
- Allow the oil to absorb for approximately 15 minutes.
- Wipe off any excess oil and buff with a clean dry towel.
We recommend treating your wood every 9-12 months on average but there is no harm in doing it more frequently depending on how often you wear your Branch+Barrel piece.
