Care Tips

Sterling Silver, Brass & Copper:

All of our pieces are made from Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper. 


My jewellery is changing color, what should I do?

At Katmeleon Jewellery we pride ourselves in delivering top quality jewellery. Due to the nature of Sterling Silver, Copper and Brass they may start to change colour over time. The reaction with the air, perfumes, soaps and the acidity levels in your skin play a role in this. 

If you want to keep your pieces bright and shiny, we advise you to keep them in an airtight container. Avoid wearing your jewellery whilst swimming, bathing/showering and when you are doing a physical activity. 

As you wear your Katmeleon Jewellery pieces, they might begin to tarnish. We love the character it gives to the jewellery, but realise that it isn't everyone's cup of tea. Here is a quick and easy way to get them shiny again. Simply take a soft cleaning cloth and use a small amount of Brasso or Silvo. Gently give the jewellery a rub, holding it in between your thumb and forefinger. Then remove excess residue with a clean part of the cloth and it should look as good as new.
