Dual Citizen Designs pieces most commonly feature satin, matt or gun metal finishes. Each of these finishes is a temporary alteration of the surface of the metal either through a process of abrasion or oxidation. With wear, these finishes will change over time. Depending on the piece, wear will occur at different rates. For example, a ring with a gun metal finish will wear faster than the same finish on a pendant or earrings due to the natural oils and chemicals that come into contact with hands. The less a piece is exposed to oils, moisture, chemicals, and everyday wear and tear, the longer the finish will last.
Slight imperfections may occur in the final finish of your piece which is characteristic of handmade jewellery. Please remember that Sterling Silver and gold are soft metals and will build character marks with wear.
Dual Citizen Designs pieces often comprise of delicate parts and semi-precious gems. To keep your piece in its best condition, it is recommended to treat your piece with great care. Any amount of force or rough handling can damage the shape and working function of the piece.
When not being worn, keep your piece wrapped in your complimentary anti-tarnish Sunshine Polishing Cloth or another soft undyed cloth, and store in an airtight bag or container to reduce tarnishing (natural oxidation when exposed to moisture and sulphur in the air).
