What are healing crystals?
Crystals have been on the Earth since the beginning of time and have been used for millions of years as a holistic, energy-based way of healing. Dating all the way back to Ancient Egypt, the Egyptians would use stones and crystals for protection and health. Like all other things in the Universe, crystals, are alive and have their own vibrations making them useful in alot of modern technology of today such as calculators, clocks, and computers. These stones connect us to the Earth and the Universe, making them great for manifesting your intentions and what you want out of life. If you are willing to open your heart and mind to the power of healing crystals you will begin to experience the Earth and the Universe in a beautiful new way.

How should I care for my jewelry?
We believe that your jewelry should always be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off! Certain chemicals such as lotions, oils, hair spray, perfume, and pool water can damage the metals used to create your piece. Certain metals such as gold plated can tarnish over time. In order to protect your jewelry minimize contact with these types of chemicals. It is also important to avoid contact with water, should your piece get wet be sure to dry it off. We recommend storing your jewelry in a cool, dry place, and in the cloth bag provided for you.
