Jewelry Care Guide

Preserve the brilliance of your jewelry

Moon Child Fine Jewelry is made to last and can be worn during most activities.  We never plate our rings. That means our jewelry doesn't have a coating that will rub off like some other brands. You don't have to take it off when you get home!  

Do your rings tarnish? 

Solid sterling silver can tarnish over time. You can restore luster to silver jewelry with your silver polishing cloth. Gently rub the cloth on the tarnished areas until it is removed. You want to avoid using abrasive materials that could scratch the surface.

What about the gemstones, how do I clean them?

Gemstones can be cleaned with lukewarm soapy water and a soft toothbrush.  You can dry with a soft towel. Opals can be polished using a soft microfiber cloth

Can I wear my jewelry in the shower or bath?

Yes!  Although you might want to remove it anyways to make sure it doesn't slip off and fall down the drain. The one exception to this rule is our Ethiopian Opal jewelry.

Why can't I wear my opal jewelry in the shower or bath?

Opals are relatively delicate gemstones that can be adversely affected by exposure to water.  Don't worry, your opal wont be ruined if you wear it in the shower once, or are caught in the rain. It takes prolonged exposure to cause water damage.  You also want to avoid frequent sudden changes in temperature, which over time, can cause small cracks to form.

Can I wear lotion while wearing my jewelry?

Absolutely. Lotion will not damage your jewelry or discolor your skin. You will want to remove your rings before applying lotion and put them back on afterwards. You don't want that beautiful ring to get all gunked up with greasy lotion.

Can I wear my rings when doing heavy duty tasks?

Please don't. Our gemstones are all natural and you don't want them to get damaged.  Please also avoid strong cleaners and anything that can scratch those gorgeous beauties.
