How to care for your jewelry
Your jewelry was handmade, hand-assembled, and hand-finished- therefore, it is delicate and requires extra care to ensure its longevity.
- Do not shower, bathe, or swim with your jewelry on
- Avoid exposure to excessive heat and moisture
- Do not clean with chemicals
- Gently wipe with a clean soft cloth each time you take it off
Special care for your crystal jewelry
Aisling Stern crystal jewelry is created using clear quartz crystals. Clear quartz crystals have a very strong vibrational quality and help regulate energy. All stones have been cleansed prior to being sold and can be periodically re-cleansed in order to help maintain their positive energetic qualities.
There are several ways to cleanse and energize your crystal jewelry:
- Smudging crystals with white sage: Light your smudge stick and hold the crystal in the stream of smoke until you feel it has been cleansed of negative energy
- Moonlight bathing: Place your crystal on a windowsill or other area where it will be bathed in moonlight overnight
- Dry brown rice: Fill a bowl with organic, dry, uncooked, brown rice and place your crystal on top of the rice for at least 4 hours
- Sunlight bathing: Place your crystal on a windowsill or other area where it will be bathed in sunlight for at least 1 hour (please note that other elements of your crystal jewelry may fade in prolonged sunlight exposure such as natural beads and cord so please take care to cover these elements while leaving your crystal exposed)
