A small ornament, piece of jewelry, etc., usually of little value.
All metals tarnish overtime, but there is a great deal you could do to slow down this process!
Firstly avoid contact with liquid such as water or perfume. You could wipe your trinkets with a dry cloth after every wear to prevent them from being tarnished by sweat.
What happens if your trinkets are already tarnished and appear dull?
Wiping them with a damp cloth helps
Most importantly when you're not wearing them, keep them in an air tight container to minimize oxidation. For example, in metal boxes. You don't really have to source for high-quality containers. Alternatively, you could keep them in Zip Lock bags, sealed.
We know how we like to hang out our accessories to look nice and prevent them from getting tangled, but this is not advisable if you want your trinkets to remain nice and shiny for a long time!
What we do to help you maintain your trinkets: Besides providing you with a zip lock bag, Gold coloured chains are gold-plated while Silver coloured chains are rhodium/silver plated, so are most ear hooks and other parts of a trinket. Wires used are tarnish-resistant. These materials are of higher quality than normal ones, which are able to deter oxidation to a greater extent.
