Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin which will oxidize over time, turning a darker, more muted color. Avoid wearing in the shower or storing in a humid environment. 

Also all metals, including bronze can react to beauty and cleaning products. Avoid contact as much as possible with perfumes, hairsprays, lotions and household cleaners.

If you like a high shine, you may prefer using a commercial metal cleaner specifically formulated for bronze or brass.
