We recommend the following tips to care for and clean our jewelry to protect these pieces and keep them looking beautiful and in excellent condition for years to come.
-Store properly: To prevent damage, store jewelry in a dry, dark place, away from sunlight and air. A jewelry box or small pouch can help keep jewelry away from other pieces that could scratch or otherwise cause damage.
-Clean gently: To maintain the natural shine of silver we recommend gently rubbing the piece with a soft polishing cloth. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or brushes, as they can scratch the surface of the jewelry. We do not recommend a chemical bath as this can affect the jewelry's integrity and appearance.
-We use an eco-friendly, anti-tarnish dip coating on our jewelry which can be scratched and damaged by polish or abrasive brushes. If any wet cleaning is necessary, we suggest a solution of mild soap and warm water, and an extra soft bristle brush. Gently wipe dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
-Avoid contact with chemicals: Keep jewelry away from chemicals such as cleaning products, perfumes, hand and body lotions, hairspray, or hand sanitizer as this can cause discoloration and damage. Be mindful of jewelry in contact with sweat, lotions, sunscreen, etc. and be sure to clean when removing for the day to ensure the piece retains its luster and protect from lasting damage.
-Avoid exposure to heat: Avoid wearing jewelry in hot or humid environments such as saunas or hot tubs.
-Remove jewelry before bathing, showering, or swimming: Chlorine and saltwater can damage jewelry, do not immerse jewelry in water.
-Protect from impact: Jewelry can chip or break if they are hit or dropped. Take care when handling or wearing, and avoid exposing to rough surfaces or hard impacts.

Why butterflies and moths? Because the small things matter and can make a BIG impact. Protecting insects means protecting the habitat they live in.
All specimens used are 100% legally imported from sustainable farms around the world. ‘Butterfly Farming’ has been shown to dramatically aid conservation efforts by preserving the forests and jungles around the farming areas. As a result, insect populations increase, additional habitat for endangered species is created, and local indigenous people are given an alternative source of income besides logging the wild areas around them.
