* The copper content in bronze can cause an oxidation reaction with your skin oils, creating a greenish layer of copper carbonate.
This layer is easily washed off, and you can reduce or eliminate the oxidation by taking your jewelry off at night, and washing it regularly with soap and water. You can also periodically coat it with any metal wax, or a wax called Renaissance Wax, which prevents the jewelry from tarnishing and inhibits the oxidation reaction with your skin oils. Wax will wear off, but is easy to re-apply at home. A coating of wax is already applied to your Minoux Jewelry.
