How Do I Care For My Copper Jewelry?

The Best way to care for your Copper is to wear it often  The natural oils from your skin will keep the copper, and pearls nice and shiny. Copper will acquire a beautiful patina over time. We feel that the patina is part of the natural beauty of the metal. 

As much as possible do not wear your jewelry when working out or doing any heavy physical activity that will cause excessive sweating. 

Clean your copper jewelry with a soft cloth if dirty you can use some liquid dish soap.

If you prefer, you can coat the metal with clear fingernail polis to maintain the shine. 


Why Does Copper Sometimes Turn My Skin Green?

Have you ever noticed a green tint on your skin after wearing copper jewelry? That is a chemical reaction between the copper, oxygen and the sweat on your skin. The process is called oxidization and is your body's way of absorbing the copper. Copper is an essential element and your body needs it. If you skin is turning green it is your body's way of telling you that something is missing. 

We typically notice this happening on hot days when when we are working outside and sweating. What can you do when this happens? Luckily the green washes off easily with soap and water. You can also coat your copper with clear fingernail polish and this will keep the green away. Of course some of our customers see the green as proof the copper is working.


Where Can I Find Cherokee Copper In Person?

We are frequently asked if we have a store location. The answer is someday. But for now you can find us in cultural gift shops, museums and art galleries from Cape Code to Tahlequah. You can find our most up to date list of locations here.

I didn’t think it would be so dense for a man’s bracelet. I feel like a thicker more durable one would be better.

It Is Beautiful

Turned my arm green

Hi Pam,
Thanks for your review. We value all the feedback we recieve from our customers.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced with our copper cuff.

It's important to note that when copper comes into contact with sweat or moisture, it can sometimes result in a greenish discoloration on the skin. This is a natural reaction, as the copper oxidizes and interacts with the skin. Interestingly, when this happens, it can often be a sign that the body is trying to absorb the copper. Copper is, in fact, an essential mineral that our bodies require for various functions. While the green discoloration might be surprising, it is typically harmless and can be washed off easily.

We understand that this experience might not have been what you expected, and we deeply value your feedback. We recommend keeping the cuff dry and cleaning it regularly to minimize the chances of this happening.
