Care Recommendations

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.

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 be cleansed and also to 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 is 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 any 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 before putting on your jewellery. Jewellery should always be removed prior to 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.

Caring For Gold Vermeil Jewellery 

Gold vermeil is an overlay of gold over a base of sterling silver. Gold vermeil jewellery requires special care. Remember to store your gold vermeil jewellery in an airtight container when not in use—and to remove before applying perfumes, lotions, or before bathing. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your gold vermeil jewellery. Avoid wearing gold vermeil jewellery while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub.

To clean gold 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 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 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.
Be particularly careful of chlorine. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolour your silver jewellery. Avoid wearing silver jewellery while using chlorine bleach or while in a pool or hot tub. 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. Sterling silver jewellery can also be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner. As with gold and gold vermeil, sterling silver should be kept absolutely dry and stored in an airtight container. As with gold and gold vermeil, sterling silver should be kept absolutely dry and stored in an airtight container.
