How Do I Care For My Gemdrop Jewelry?
- Each Gemdrop design is made to order using materials which could include, vermeil, sterling silver, glass, semi-precious gemstones, vintage or antique tribal beads. To ensure long term wear, please limit your jewelry's exposure to water, oils, perfumes, chlorine, excessive sweat and jewelry cleaners.
- To clean your jewelry, it is recommended you use microfiber cleaning cloths on gemstones, beads and metals. Avoid cleaning with water. Prolonged exposure to moisture could weaken the integrity of wire and cords used to create your jewelry, as well as harm some of the finishes.
- Metals naturally tarnish over time, to reduce the onset of tarnishing we recommend storing your jewelry in a jewelry box or drawer and adding a silica packet (commonly found in shoe boxes, handbags). The silica packets help absorb the impurities in the air that cause tarnishing.
- If you do require jewelry repairs due to normal wear and tear, we are happy to provide that service to you. Please email us at email@example.com to notify us of your repair request and we will contact you with pricing information if applicable.

- Because we use semi-precious gemstones and precious metals there may be slight imperfections and variations in the stones and texture of metals. These imperfections lend to the organic beauty of each of our designs.
