Take care of your jewellery and it will last a lifetime!
Each piece of Gracie Jewellery is handcrafted using genuine gemstone beads and either sterling silver or 14k yellow gold filled. With proper care, your jewellery will retain its beauty for many years to come.
Metals will tarnish, especially when exposed to humidity. However, jewellery that is worn regularly needs less care, so Gracie Jewellery strongly encourages you to wear your jewellery every day.
Body sprays, perfumes, hairsprays, etc will dull your jewellery. Do not wear your jewellery in water, showering, swimming, in the sauna or hot tub, or while exercising. Jewellery should be the last thing you put on in the morning when dressing, after that spritz of perfume and hairspray, and the first thing you remove while preparing for your night. It is not advisable to wear your jewellery to bed. Some medications and people with highly acidic systems will tarnish the metal.
Gracie Jewellery strongly recommends you do not clean your jewellery with baking soda or toothpaste as this will cause scratching.
Gemstone and pearls strands that have been hand knotted should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth. Knotted strands should never be subjected to moisture as this will stretch the silk.
Be especially careful with aragonite, pearls, moonstones, opals, and turquoise as these are soft stones that can be damaged easily. If a particular gemstone needs special care, it will be noted in the listing description.
Gracie Jewellery recommends periodically buffing your jewellery with a soft flannel cloth. It is best when not wearing your jewellery to store it in the pouch is was shipped in.
