Each stone is a unique gift from the earth and it is natural for them to vary ever-so-slightly in shape and color. We take care to include them in our collections, and every stone chosen is faceted by hand.
To best care for your semi-precious stones, clean them in a solution of water and a few drops of mild dish soap. A soft toothbrush and a few gentle strokes are all that is needed to clean into tight corners, but be sure to keep the brush away from any metal parts of the jewelry to which the stone may be attached so as to avoid scratches. After brushing, rinse your jewelry in clean water and dry it with a soft cloth.
