Cleaning instructions- Use a dry soft cloth to gently remove any body oils etc. Most Emeralds are oiled, so avoid any detergent or ultrasonic cleaners. I like to treat my emerald bead jewelry to a tiny sip of extra virgin olive oil, every few yrs. Just put a small dab on a soft dry cloth and gently massage your beads. then wipe it off good . This will make your Emerald beads smile! Avoid getting it on your silver.To Brighten the silver use a polishing cloth . Silver cleaner and other chemicals ,( hair spray, perfumes, pools , and yes even hot tubs,) can damage your gemstones. To keep your silver looking its best, I recommend you store all silver jewelry in a anti tarnish bag.
Keeping it Real- Due to the nature of the authentic natural components used in my hand crafted artisan jewelry, each piece will be unique. Any inclusions are considered by me to add to the beauty of these natural treasures from the earth and sea.
