ABOUT THE JEWELRY
- Is the silver sterling silver? Also, what is gold fill?
- I have some VeraMeat & I’d like to polish it, how do I do it?
For silver you can make a paste of baking soda and water and gently buff with a cloth or tooth brush. You can also use white toothpaste. Or boil with baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt for just a few minutes and polish with soft cloth.
For red copper make paste using lemon and salt or cut a lemon in half, dip into course salt, polish and rinse. You can also place a lot of salt in a little water, add enough vinegar to cover the salt, place copper in the bowl & rinse after 5 minutes.
For gold use a little white toothpaste and polish with soft cloth.
For gold brass believe it or not tomato sauce works well if you rinse with water after. You can also make a lemon and baking soda solution. Also the vinegar and salt with soft cloth method works well. Rub with olive oil after to prevent tarnishing!
- Will the copper and gold brass turn my fingers green?
It depends one hundred percent on the person. Those with dry skin have less chance of fingers turning green. You can put clear nail polish inside ring which will protect it & your fingers. If you are unsure about what metal allergies you might have, sterling silver is always safe bet.
