Welcome to Lux & Luca Jewelry Co! Hand forged, minimalist style jewlery with and edge.

 BASE METAL CARE

Brass, Nugold and Copper are base metals which mean they will tarnish over time. Some body chemistries are more acidic than others ( I have no way of determining this before hand) and will cause the metal to turn green and or/ tarnish at a far more rapid rate than other bodies. If you feel your piece has turned at an alarming rate, I will be happy to exchange them for a sterling or gold fill at an extra charge + shipping. 

To care for your piece:

keep it away from water, aerosols, perfumes, lotions and other chemicals. Do not leave your necklace or cuff in the bathroom while you shower, as moist air can cause tarnish. Once brass chains tarnish, they will forever be in this state. FOR BARS AND CUFFS to remove tarnish simply use a brass cleaner like BRASSO or a jewelry polishing cloth.
