Our bead necklaces are all natural gemstones. Natural gemstones are vulnerable to rough treatment and chemicals.
All are porous and so they absorb oils from your body and beauty products.
Opals in particular are very soft, porous gems and should certainly be protected.
With the reasonable care they will never let you down.
The beads are strung on top quality jeweller silk thread using specialised method. There are tiny knots along the necklace to keep the beads firmly in place and also to allow for some give in the thread to prevent it snapping and losing the beads. Pulling on the necklace can undo these knots and will cause the necklace to look stretched.
Take care that you don’t expose your necklace to unnecessary time with your hair such as sleeping and blow-drying.
Keep opals and turquoise away from prolonged sunlight or high heat.
