I didn't mean to take off so much of the patina. I used a cleaning cloth. The inside cloth was treated and the outside cloth was for buffing/polishing. When I thought I was finished, I put it on. Soon after that I washed my hands and when I dried with a cloth towel I realized the towel was turning dark... tarnish was coming off. It could be worse, but it's a little too sparkly for my taste. This ring was said by the seller to be early 1900's trench art. I still love it. I'm wearing it every day, but I regret over polishing it.
What do you think?
