Organic Material Jewelry Care

Cleaning organic jewelry will depend on the material (wood, stone, horn, glass, etc.) Keep in mind that this jewelry is made only for healed piercings. Organic jewelry is sensitive to extreme conditions (sun, warmth, water, etc.) so it’s best to store it in dark and cool place.

• Wood: To keep your wood jewelry in a great condition, make sure to only oil it with natural plant oil. Never get your wood jewelry wet. It’s best to polish your jewelry with a soft cloth.

• Stone: Stone is best cleaned using purified or distilled water and mild germicidal or anti-bacterial soap. Make sure to dry it before use or storing. Stone jewelry can break if you drop it, so make sure to handle it with care.  Avoid contact with salt.

• Buffalo horn and bone: It’s important to clean the jewelry before use. Clean it quickly with purified or distilled water and mild germicidal or anti-bacterial soap. Rinse and dry it immediately.  To make your jewelry last for longer, lightly oil it with coconut oil about once per week – it will prevent cracking. Polish your jewelry from time to time with a soft cloth to keep it in a great condition. Do not bathe, swim, shower with jewelry.

• Glass: Glass jewelry can be cleaned with purified or distilled water and mild germicidal or anti-bacterial soap.  Minerals and other chemicals and contaminants in public water can damage glass especially if left on the glass to dry.  Make sure to dry with soft cloth before use or storing. Glass jewelry can break if you drop it so handle it with care.
