Julez Bryant handcrafted jewelry requires proper care and attention to maintain the beauty of our custom finishes and settings. It is recommended to remove your jewelry when washing your hands, putting on lotion, face creams or perfume. These and other natural elements can dull the appearance of gold and gemstones.
When not being worn, we recommend jewelry be stored in a soft fabric protective pouch. For light cleaning, you may gently polish with a jewelry polishing cloth or you can soak for 3-5 minutes in a bowl of warm water and diluted dish soap, gently cleaning with a soft bristle toothbrush, then dry completely with a soft lint-free cloth. Please note that ultrasonic cleaning is too aggressive for most gemstones. Professional cleaning is suggested annually.
In addition, we suggest you take daily activities into consideration when choosing your jewelry to wear. To avoid scratches or damage to any stones, it is best to avoid wearing to the beach, at the swimming pool, working out, doing housework or gardening. It is also recommended to not expose any jewelry to the likes of bleach, household cleansers, hard surfaces, or rugged activities.
