A NOTE ABOUT NATURAL GEMSTONES:
Individuality should be celebrated! Your natural gemstones are naturally, and perfectly imperfect: Unevenness in color or texture or finish in gemstones is normal. Expect to see some internal inclusions, dots, or flecks, and slight variations in size or color. We strive to provide an accurate description of our jewelry, but variations from the piece photographed can occur, and expect to see a slight difference in color from your device or monitor from the real thing.
MOTHER OF PEARL (SHELL)
Stress Relief + Prosperity + Protection + Open-Mindedness
Wear Mother of Pearl to bring some calm into your life. Like the waves of the ocean wear down the shell to expose the beautiful depth and luster underneath, let your own inner beauty shine in its calming energy. It symbolizes wealth and prosperity, soothing, motherly protection, and helps you keep an open mind to your own possibilities.
Mother of Pearl corresponds to the solar plexus chakra.
Sterling Silver is composed of 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper alloy, added to harden it. Sterling silver should be stored properly and kept from heavy chemicals to keep from tarnishing, but unlike many metals, it can be cleaned and returned to its original shine. Use the most gentle cleaner that can get the job done: Silver can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth, or gentle all purpose jewelry cleaner. Be sure to protect stones when cleaning silver.
If you want your jewelry to last, remember the old saying: “Jewelry should be the last thing you put on, and the first thing you remove”.
Keep it clean by keeping it away from chemicals, lotions, perfumes, excessive humidity, and protect from heavy, hard wearing activities such as sports, heavy work, or vigorous exercise. The main culprits that shorten the life of your jewelry are: never taking it off, wearing it while sleeping, wearing it in hot tubs and pools, and while playing sports. Store in an airtight container such as jewelry box or zip lock baggie while not wearing. When storing long term, make sure to clean and dry thoroughly before storing.
GEMSTONE CARE: Mother of Pearl, or shell, is an organic gemstone, and should be cleaned with warm soapy water, or gentle jewelry cleaners that list that it’s safe for pearls. Store in a breathable cloth bag or jewelry box, and separate from other jewelry to avoid scratching the surface. Protect the luster from chemicals by putting on at least 30 minutes after applying lotions or perfumes, and wipe with a soft, damp cloth after each wear to remove any dirt, sweat or chemicals. Because of the soft surface, protect from harsh chemicals and heavy wear during work or sports.
