Cleaning & general maintenance instructions


Celeste is making it super easy for you to maintain your jewellery by giving you a complimentary polish cloth so you don't have to worry about expensive or tricky cleaning. If you do loose your cloth below are some alternatives to help you, but we suggest you hold onto your cloth with both hands as it is specifically for brass and silver. 

POLISH CLOTH

With every Celeste Twikler jewellery purchase you will receive a complimentary polish cloth. Be careful not to use this cloth on gem stones as it may be to harsh and abrasive. Simply use on the brass or silver setting avoiding any of the gem stone. When you are not wearing your jewellery keep it in the zip lock bag your polish cloth comes in

BRASS

Celeste wants caring for your brass to be as easy as possible that's why she includes a complimentary police cloth with every jewellery purchase. Simply wipe your jewellery with the cloth provided to give it extra shine.

Like all jewellery brass will naturally tarnish or go dull overtime, sweat and oils can speed this up.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen.

Avoid exposing to harsh chemicals such as chlorine, cosmetics, hair spray, sunscreen and perfume.

When your not wearing your jewellery wipe the piece with a soft cotton rag or cloth provided after wearing and store in a zip lock bag. (provided with complimentary polish cloth)

Everyone reacts differently to brass, some find it stays bright and shiny others may get a slight green tinge on there skin, this is harmless it just looks odd. Its can be caused be a few different factors, the most common being an acidic diet. It may leave marks on your skin but it is harmless and will wash off or stop occurring after a few wears
