    Included with your purchase of the brass Virtue Studs will be a polishing cloth and instructions on how to keep your jewelry clean, dry, and polished. We love working with brass because it can be polished to shine–due to the nature of brass being just itself. Brass, when polished, can be a beautiful replacement for 14k gold jewelry.
