Start with Cleansing
Crystal and Wood absorb negative energy it is important to cleanse your jewellery often. We highly recommend Sound Cleansing using a Metal or Crystal Singing Bowl, the most convenient and safe way of cleansing your jewellery. Just put your jewellery inside and sing the bowl using the mallet.
Generally, you can cleanse your jewellery putting it under a running tap for 2-5 minutes, but this method is not suitable for delicate design, design with string wrapping (you need to wait for the string to dry out before you can wear again), and for water-soluble crystal like Selenite.
Alternatively, you can also use incense to cleanse your jewellery or put sea salt around your jewellery for a couple of hours for thorough cleansing, however, do not and never put your jewellery in salt water as it may erode and damage your jewellery.
Recharging Your Jewellery
Our jewellery is all purposed-designed, and for its effect to take place, you need to wear it often. Your jewellery needs to cleanse and be recharged after regular use for it to be at the highest vibration possible, so that you may receive the most benefit from using them.
The colour, and sometimes surface texture, of crystal and wood, will alter over time after frequent use. The factors causing the changes are our mood and body's energy. The scent of wood bead might be enhanced or deteriorated too. Always take a good look at your jewellery before you start wearing to take note of its shape, colour and clarity. Once the colour gets dull or clarity deteriorated, or if you noticed a change in the shape or surface of bead or charm (surface become uneven), it is time to cleanse and recharge your jewellery. People going through a hard time or has illness will have to cleanse and recharge their jewellery more often.
Simply place your jewellery needing charging on a crystal cluster or larger piece of a stone that can charge others such as selenite, amethyst cluster or quartz cluster. Leave your jewellery there for 24 hours or until it feels like it is at full energy.
Storing your Jewellery
If you are not going to wear your jewellery for a while, we would recommend that you store your jewellery in the special pouch provided with your order. You can also store your jewellery in an air-tight container or bag. Proper storage helps to prevent scratching of stones and metal. Be careful not to place heavy objects on top of your jewellery during storage and to be gentle when putting on or removing jewellery. For the more delicate piece or those with Faceted beads, we would recommend that you keep them in the bag that comes with the jewellery, and stored individually.
Jewellery Care Tips
Dust, pollution, cosmetics and perfumes all conspire to cloud the brilliance of a gemstone and dull the surface of gold, gold vermeil and sterling silver. We recommend applying perfume or other sprayed substances and lotions before putting on your jewellery. You should always remove your jewellery before showering. We recommend using only untreated, dry, soft cloth on your jewellery. We do not recommend the use of any jewellery polishing cloths which have been treated with cleaners or polishing agents.
Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your gold (plated, filled or vermeil) and silver jewellery. Avoid wearing any gold or silver jewellery while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.
Caring For Gold (Plated, Filled, Vermeil) Jewellery)
To clean gold (plated, filled or vermeil) jewellery, buff VERY gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth. NEVER use chemical cleaners on 22k gold vermeil jewellery- it can strip the gold finish. It is natural for gold (plated, filled or vermeil) jewellery to tarnish with time - it adds character to the item makes it as individual as you are.
Caring For Sterling Silver Jewellery
Sterling silver will also tarnish naturally over time but can be cleaned very easily. Be sure to clean the silver only and avoid contact with any stones, particularly pearls and soft stones such as opals and emeralds, as the polish may cause damage to these stones.
Tarnish is also accelerated in a humid environment. Oily salts from fingers can also tarnish silver.
You can remove light tarnish by using a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or microfiber cloth and buff gently. You can also clean Sterling silver jewellery in an ultrasonic cleaner.
Be gentle when wearing and removing your jewellery. Regular use of certain jewellery may cause it to break due to wear and tear. Should this happen please send it back to us we will repair it free of charge, except for items with string wrapping. However, you will have to bear the cost of sending the jewellery to us and also back to you. Should there are any missing part that needs to be replaced, we will have to charge you too, provided the parts are available.
