I love oxidized jewelry. I think the contrast between the yellow gold and the black is so appealing and charming. It also gives the jewelry a really cool and unique character.
However, maintaining this look is not that simple. The oxidization tends to fade or become lighter over time. The good news is, there are a few things you can do to help preserve this look as long as possible.
Avoid water - I recommend taking your jewelry off before washing your hands or taking a shower... keep them off before you take a quick dip in the pool or the ocean.. Take those beauties off and put them in a plastic or a fabric bag somewhere safe and secure.
Keep them away from chemicals - I also recommend taking your jewelry off when you are cleaning the house or using any chemicals.
Put your lotion or perfume on before putting on your jewelry - After you apply your lotion or perfume, wait a few minutes, make sure it's all absorbed into your skin before putting your jewelry on.
Of course these steps help maintain the look a bit longer but over time the color will fade away. Another good news; I always re-oxidize your Elle Naz Jewelry pieces for free. All you need to do is contact me via email and I'll help you with it.
Hope this helps! Now go rock your gorgeous jewels cause you are fabulous!
