The Unique Luster of Copper Jewelry
Copper jewelry has been worn for more than one hundred years, in part for medical reasons but mainly for aesthetic appeal. It has been known to boost blood circulation and minimize the symptoms of joint disease. Copper jewelry also has a warm reddish-orange hue that pairs well with most wardrobe choices. Over time, copper has become an outstanding choice of jewelry for many men and women. It is also fairly inexpensive and easily available.
The ongoing popularity of copper jewelry has much to do with its unique luster and versatility. Copper jewelry, especially copper bracelets and copper earrings, are well sought after by people who enjoy the ethnic, earthy look that has made its way to many of the top designer’s collections. Copper also provides a reasonable alternative to more costly metals, such as silver, gold, and platinum.
Versatile Copper Jewelry
Copper jewelry has made its mark in many collections due to its versatility and resilience. Unlike other types of metals which can become dull as it ages, copper has the opposite effect. Oxidation of unprotected copper can cause it to darken into a brown warm shade that often enhances the look of the jewelry. When exposed to the elements, copper can also form a greenish-blue patina that gives the jewelry a distinctive look. Many accomplished jewelry designers use this advantage to produce organic and modern designs and patterns. Uncoated copper jewelry can become tarnished after extended periods of time, but can easily be renewed to its original brilliant state. Transform copper jewelry with fresh lemon juice, water and salt.
Maintaining Your Copper Jewelry
To maintain your copper jewelry and keep its luster intact and its exterior tarnish-free, keep it in a sealed plastic bag or jewelry case with anti-tarnish paper. Be sure that the copper jewelry is clean, dry, and free of moisture before storing. Since copper is a highly malleable metal, be sure that the jewelry is stored in a safe place. Caring for copper jewelry is much easier than other types of metal jewelry, including gold and silver. Remember that copper is the catalyst that speeds tarnish in precious metals, meaning that only 24K fine silver and gold won’t tarnish, because they are not alloyed with copper. Many jewelry designers create a multitude of earrings, bracelets, brooches, and rings in copper metal to fit any fashion preference and style. Copper jewelry is worn by both men and women of all ages. To stay trendy, healthy, and chic – consider adding a copper jewelry to your jewelry collection.
