Each piece of handcrafted artisan jewelry is made with natural stones and sterling silver. Therefore, to ensure the longevity of your piece, proper care is required.
As a general rule, the better you treat your jewelry, the longer it will last. Chemicals found in hot tubs and in certain perfumes or lotions can cause some metals to discolor, and can cause your jewelry to turn your skin green. To keep your jewelry looking its best, avoid spraying perfumes or applying lotions near your jewelry.
It is advised to remove your handcrafted jewelry prior to activities where it may come in contact with chemicals or what, including cleaning, hand washing, exercising, or showering. If your piece does get wet, dry it thoroughly. To prevent damage to the jewelry or stones(s), avoid dropping or banging your piece.
To clean, every piece comes with a cotton flannel cloth for polishing. For deep cleaning, soak in warm water with a little mild dish soap (I recommend Dawn) for 10 minutes, rub with a soft cloth and dry thoroughly. You may then polish with the cotton flannel cloth or a soft polishing cloth.
