Tagua is a natural, organic material and the undyed products may darken slightly over time, this is normal.  If your tagua jewellery is looking a bit dull it can be buffed up with a soft white cotton cloth.  Although tagua is a fairly hardwearing material, please be aware that if you drop it onto or knock it against a hard surface it could chip.  Never immerse your tagua jewellery in water as this can cause it to crack.

Brass is likely to tarnish over time. If you want to restore the original shine to your jewellery we recommend you clean it with Brass and a soft cloth.
