Our copper jewelry is made from solid copper and is not surface-treated.

Most of our customers want direct contact with copper, which is said to have a beneficial effect on the body. You can find out more about this in the “Facts about copper” section.

Copper can form a patina under certain circumstances, similar to silver. If you like, you can also “clean” copper in exactly the same way: with a paste for silver or brass care (for example Wenol or Sidol). A “silver bath” (a liquid in which you immerse the piece of jewelry) is less suitable.

If you wear your jewelry frequently – even when bathing and showering – you will notice that hardly any patina forms. However, if you take the piece of jewelry off for a longer period of time, it will probably darken. Then use the cleaning agents mentioned or – much easier – wear the jewelry! After a few days, the patina will disappear again (it wears off – just like with silver).

Interestingly, the surface of the copper seems to react to your physical condition, sometimes a little darker (when you are not feeling well), sometimes a little lighter (when you are feeling well). This is because the composition of your skin sweat changes, and the copper reacts to this.
