PRODUCT CARE
Every piece of Salted Gems jewelry is hand-crafted & requires delicate handling. Our shells, gemstones, & other raw materials are naturally & ethically sourced; no two pieces are the same. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, having it's own unique qualities & characteristics that set it apart from the rest. Please remember to respect & embrace the origin of the jewelry, as to extend the life & wear of each piece.

Sterling Silver Care
You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will naturally “clean” the silver & preserve it's luster. Avoid direct contact with cleaning chemicals, perfumes, & lotions.

Silver is a soft metal; it can be easily scratched if not polished with a special silver cloth, a micro fiber cloth, or a lint-free cloth. When polishing, use long back-and-forth motions that go with the grain of the silver. Do not rub in circles, as this will magnify any tiny scratches that you might have from wear; this will keep your silver jewelry clean, lustrous, & tarnish free.

Please Note
Never use diamond cleaner on Pearls, Shells, Corals, Fossils, Shark Teeth, Opals, or Soft Gemstones. To prevent permanent damage to the color of your stones, avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight & excessive heat.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
-Hand Selected & Authentic Gemstones*

-Many of the shells are found from the beaches where we visited around the world*

[[Please note: No shells/coral/shark teeth are EVER taken live]]

-Every piece is handmade: shells, shark teeth, gemstones & other raw materials differ; no 2 pieces are the same, picture may slightly differ because no shell/gemstone are exactly the same, which makes every piece unique and one of a kind.) Most Items listed are the item that you will be receiving in the mail; some items are made to order while other items we made more then one available, items may have been photographed in different lighting (natural light & light box).

-We have limited stock on items; the line is always evolving & changing, so if you see something you like grab it while it's still available.

-For Shipping we reuse old bubble wrap from surfboard shipments from local surf shops & reps to help reduce plastic & our carbon footprint.

- We recommend to NOT swim/shower with our Roman Glass Jewelry On; it's an antique & the patina will be destroyed. We are not responsible.

- We collaborated with Snow McCormick, Artist/ Owner of Swimminginmoonlight. Where she helped named some of our most signature pieces.

-Enjoy your Salted Gems™
