Jewellery Care

How to look after your Conscious Crystals Jewellery.


All of the Conscious Crystals jewellery is made with so much love and care before it is sent out into the world to our beautiful customers like you. With proper care and maintenance, your jewellery can last you a very long time.


To keep your pieces looking their best, follow these general guides…


  • Keep in a space or jewellery box seperate from other jewellery so that it doesn’t get scratched or damaged by your other pieces. 
  • Remove before bathing, showering or swimming. Though most crystals and the metal the jewellery is crafted with, water can still damage your pieces, and they will not last well over a long period of continued exposure. 
  • Avoid direct contact with perfume, body lotions or chemicals, as they can erode the jewellery, taking away the sparkle and shine. We recommend applying your lotions and perfumes, letting them sit and absorb for a few minutes, then putting on your jewellery.
  • Take your pieces off before any physical activity, or going to sleep.


If your Jewellery contains Gemstones or Crystals please read the guide below.


All Crystals and Gemstones are rated from 1-10 on Moh’s Hardness Scale, 1 being the softest and 10 being the hardest. This scale is helpful when looking at Crystals and water tolerance, as the softer the material, the more likely they are to be damaged by water. As a general guide, it is said that crystals below 5 should not come into contact with water, but crystals above 5 are fine with water.

Crystals that CAN go in water…


P.S. Crystals are especially safe in water if they are in a polished or tumbled form. Raw Crystal,s tend to be more delicate. If you are salt water cleansing, double check that the crystal is also safe in salt, because it can be very corrosive.

Please remember, this is from my personal experience and research, but it is not complete, are there are thousands of minerals out there. You may have experience with crystals I have listed in the not water safe section, being fine in water, which is completely possible, but I like to walk on the side of caution as I would rather be safe than sorry. I will update this list when I know more about more crystals coming into the market.
