ALL OF OUR JEWELRY IS LEAD FREE, NICKEL FREE, AND CADMIUM FREE
Most of our pieces are made with a copper or brass base metal and plated with 14k-24k gold depending on the piece. Each piece states in their description whether it is made of copper or brass and what karat plating it has. Because we use stronger base metals your jewelry should not tarnish.
Sustainability Tips: Taking Care of Jewelry
-Avoid any contact with water whenever possible
Water reacts with most metals, so the more contact your metal jewelry has with water the more likely it will be to tarnish or turn a different color. Take your jewelry off when doing the doing the dishes, going swimming, working out and taking a shower.
-Store in a safe place
Each necklace comes in a purple velvet bag, these make a great place to store your gems when you're not wearing them. Keeping them in a cool (non humid) place is also important.
-Take jewelry off before going to sleep, and when applying lotion or perfumes to your body
-Do not leave in sunlight (this is especially important for crystal pieces as the sun can damage certain gems if they are exposed to harsh light for too long).
Taking care of jewelry is important to ensure that it will last a long time, because even the nicest pieces are prone to tangling and tarnishing if not properly cared for.
How to Clean Jewelry At Home:
Silver: make a thick paste with 1/4 cup baking soda and 2 tablespoons water. Apply with a damp sponge and gently rub, rinse, and buff dry.
Gold: cover with a light coating of baking soda, pour a bit of vinegar over it, and rinse clean. Note: Do not use this technique with jewelry containing pearls or gemstones, as it could damage their finish or loosen any glue
-Shine Up Gold:
Give gold a bubble bath by pouring a few drops of mild dish soap into a small bowl of sodium-free seltzer water or club soda. Put the jewelry into a small strainer, and place it in the bowl to soak for about five minutes. Swish it around and then fish out each piece to go over settings and crevices with a soft toothbrush. Return each piece to the strainer and rinse under running water and dry with a soft cloth.
Charging your Gems:
-Let them bask in the full moon's light
Like tarot cards and stone crystals, your jewelry can also be charged under a full moon. The Full Moon is a time of increased potent energy, use it to charge your gems.
-When in doubt, sage it out!
Light up some sage and hold it under your jewelry and let the smoke flow under it.
-Put your own positive energy into your jewelry
What you think, you attract. This one requires some concentration. Find a quiet place and clear your mind. Hold your gem in your hand and imaging what energy you want to infuse in your jewelry. Now imagine that energy moving through your arm, out your hand and into your necklace.
We obtain our crystals from a supplier here in the United States, they gather their stones from various areas around the world. Each crystal piece is uniquely hand made and will have slight variations. Shade variation is to be expected in quartz items as these are natural. Please note that all crystals are not perfectly flat and vary slightly in color hue.
There’s a reason we carry mostly gold jewelry...
The powers of gold are a phenomenon that healers and people in high seats of power have known about for some time. It raises frequencies and amplifies abundance.
Gold has been called the Master Healer, and is an excellent mineral for purification of the body. Gold clears negative energy from the chakras, specifically the third eye and crown chakra. The third eye is all about truly seeing what is around you and using your intuition to guide you. The crown chakra is sometimes called the thousand petaled lotus and is said to be your connection point to universal energy and divine intelligence.
When you have good energy flow in the third eye chakra and crown chakras: keen sense of intuition, easily recall your dreams and have clarity around their meanings, imaginative, perceptive, open minded, spiritually connected.
The sacred elemental properties of gold are so powerful that they emit a warm light that protects the wearer. It has the power to stabilize bodily functions such as inflammation, digestion, chemical imbalances, and thyroid issues. It also is even being used in some treatments of cancer.
Due to its healing properties, gold is a wonderful addition to your meditation, and ritual practices to help relax your mind, body, and spirit.
