Your birdie jewelry, like all jewelry, will hold up best if you remove your jewels before showering, swimming, and sleeping. Although, I admit to wearing a lot of the jewels all day / everyday, and it’s still held up quite well.
Storing silver + brass pieces in plastic bags when you’re not wearing them will help prevent them tarnishing too quickly. It is completely natural and expected for silver and brass to tarnish, however, so when you’re ready to clean your jewels, there are plenty of eco-friendly jewelry cleaning solutions you can make at home or purchase. You can also purchase a polishing cloth, like this one.
