Can I wear my bracelet in the shower or while swimming?

All of our jewelry is appropriate for hand washing and showering, although sterling silver and copper is less prone to tarnish when kept dry. Due to nature’s elements, copper and sterling silver jewelry can fade or tarnish over time. For copper, use WA polishing cloth and wipe lightly. For sterling silver jewelry, use a fine silver polish and gently wipe down with a WA soft microfiber cloth. To ensure longevity, safely store your pieces in a jewelry box or bag.
