Tantalum is virtually eternally durable and doesn't really require special care, but like all jewelry, it will scratch and develop its own patina, although at a much slower rate than softer metals like silver or gold.
Our first recommendation is always to wear your jewelry as you see fit, and let it live with you, tantalum is tough. Yet you might want to restore its original look, or manually clean it once in a while. Taking care of tantalum is very easy though.
How to clean Tantalum Jewelry
Put your tantalum jewelry in a bowl of water and mild soap for a few minutes. Then remove the jewelry and gently brush the surfaces with a soft cloth.
You can also use an ultrasonic cleaner found in jewelry stores. Taking a shower with your jewelry will also naturally clean it.
How to remove scratches on Tantalum Jewelry
If you wish to remove scratches from your tantalum jewelry, you can use either a nylon pad (scotch brite for instance) or a cream metal polish, and rub it with a soft cloth.
Rinse with water after you're done and the jewelry should be like new.
For accurate sizing, we recommend you take the measurement of the circumference of your wrist with a measuring tape. The tape shouldn't be too tight around your wrist.
Your bracelet will stretch by approximately 0.5cm over the course of a few days of wear time, so a moderately snug fit is what we recommend when picking your size.
If you are in between sizes, pick the smaller size for a tight fit, or the bigger size for a looser fit. Alternatively, we can custom make the bracelet for you.
For accurate sizing, we recommend that you use a dedicated ring sizer, which we can send for free on request. Please make sure that the ring sizer is not too tight around your finger when measuring.
Because our fingers change sizes during the day and depending on whether it's hot or cold, you should measure your finger size in the morning and in the evening, and take the bigger size so that you can wear the ring at all times.
