All of the jewelry we create are unique and fragile pieces of art that are meant for personal adornment. While they are made to last, gemstones and metals can be damaged by rough treatment. Please avoid contact with water, dirt, cosmetics, etc. We recommend storing your jewelry in the zip bag it arrived in when not in use and using a polishing cloth or gentle jewelry cleaner as needed. Never dip softer stones such as pearls, turquoise, amber as it will damage the stones.
