Silver in general can sometimes darken, also known as oxidize. The reasons behind this can be the minerals and salts secreted by the body or found in the air if you live in a humid environment. The tarnished silver can be treated using a ’Silver dip’ - a specialist polish available at jewelers' or a tarnish removal cloth available in most online jewellery stores.
- Always keep your jewellery away from body lotions, perfumes and other products you put on your skin, as this may tarnish the metal.
- Always remove your jewellery before taking a bath, swimming or doing the dishes.
- Store your jewellery in a dry and soft place when not worn, to maintain the lustre and prevent scratches from forming.
- Use professional cleaning agents when polishing your jewellery, taking extra care not to cover any beads or gemstones with it as it may be hard to remove.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR RING SIZE
The image above is a ring that measures 1,7 cm (17 mm) in inside diameter, i.e. this ring bearer will need to choose size 17 when ordering rings from M of Copenhagen.
If you do not have a ring to measure and compare to, simply measure the circumference of the finger you wish to wear one of Marie's rings on.
How to measure:
Cut a piece of string (ca 10 cm) and wrap it snugly (comfortably, and not too tight) around your finger, holding one end of the string pressed against the finger you are measuring as a starting point. Mark the string where it touches the end you're pressing down. Then unravel the string and measure that length ( from the end to the mark you made). The length you get should then be divided by 3.14 and that will give you a reading in millimeter.
Example: My finger measures 62 mm (6,2 cm) around where I wish to wear my ring.
62 / 3,14 = 19,74 this means a ring in size "19" from the Marie Beatrice Gade collection should be perfect for me. Always best to have a ring size that sits snugly around your finger so it doesn't fall off in sudden movements.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BANGLE SIZE
The method of measuring your bangle size is quite similar to how rings can be measured, only using another part of the hand of course. To find your bangle size, please follow the instructions below. I do not recommend measuring and old bangle as they may have been bent out of shape (providing a false reading) or be a different shape than the designs I offer, and therefore hard to use as an example. For my jewellery, I personally recommend to always measure your hand as follows:
