CARING FOR YOUR OPALS
Opals are delicate, soft and porous stone that contains a small percentage of water within their silica structure. They are absorbent and can be easily damaged or scratched. Care: Avoid chemicals, cleaning agents, vinegars or acids. They are also sensitive to some hand lotions and soaps so remove them when hand-washing, showering or dishwashing. Exposure to high temperatures and sunlight can also dry them out and they can crack. Store in a jewelry box or soft pouch. Consult with a jewelry specialist for more specifics on your opals, their care and refurbishment.
Wear your jewelry often. When you're not wearing it, carefully hang necklaces or store jewelry in a hard box to avoid bending and tangling.
You can clean most jewelry with soap and water with a toothbrush, or a jewelry ultra sonic.
To prevent tarnish, use a polishing cloth or a liquid dip (read instructions first if cleaning stones and never dip pearls).
Or you can always send your piece back to be cleaned.
We source first from local and then from American companies. We take pride in knowing where our metal and stones come from, maintaining relationships with miners, stone cutters and companies that run transparent supply chains as much as possible.
