How to Clean and Take Care of Your Jewelry
Wearing jewelry can instantly make your outfit look more polished. However, if you don’t take care of your jewelry properly, it could get damaged or tarnished over time. It can be tricky to take care of your jewelry since they’ll usually require different cleaning methods, depending on the material. But with the proper steps, you can keep your jewelry looking its best for years to come.
For those of you who are wondering about how to care for your healing gemstone and silver jewelry so it remains physically stellar, I do have some tips for you!
✨ Treat your healing gemstone jewelry with care. Don’t pull, slam, bang natural stones as they are not indestructible pieces of plastic!
✨ If you do break a bead in your jewelry, let me know! I am happy to repair or replace it for you.
✨ Don’t mistake organic veins and craters for cracks though, these are the pits and valleys made by Mother Earth.✨ Keep your stretch cord bracelets out of prolonged water. Over time, stretch cord jewelry will stretch out. The more you wear it, the more the elasticity will wear out. It’s best to get your stretch bracelets restrung as soon as you feel some lax in the cord. Lucky for you, I offer this service free of charge as part of your warranty. 😊
✨ Silver jewelry is beautiful and offers great durability. However, with any exposure to humidity, silver will tarnish. Metals will oxidize over time, so go with the flow and embrace the urban decay into antiquity. Nothing stays young and shiny forever, appreciate the aging process.
✨ If you are not so keen on the tarnished look.. Storing silver jewelry in a plastic zipped bag will keep the air out and possibly slow tarnishing. If and when your silver finally tarnishes anyway, use an old toothbrush and gently rub toothpaste into your silver, leave it on for ten minutes and then wash it off. Job done. Easiest, fastest way to clean silver jewelry.
✨ From time to time you can also buff with a soft cloth to restore the original shine. Your silver should look good as new!
✨ Besides physically caring for your energy healing crystal jewelry and your empowering silver jewelry, I recommend energetically cleaning and charging your jewelry for healing. For this reason, I suggest to keep your jewelry in a Selenite Bowl. Use it as your jewelry dish!
