Care Instructions / Tips:
Some pieces of crystal jewelry (especially larger, heavier, or more delicate pieces) require a little more consideration when wearing. Please keep in mind that Realm and Reason jewelry is not costume jewelry and should be worn with love and care. When purchasing Realm and Reason jewelry you are getting a super special, one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art featuring beautiful, genuine stones or crystals from Mother Earth, and when care is taken, they are suitable for daily wear.
1. Do not sleep in your piece.
2. Remove jewelry before bathing, showering, swimming, washing hands, etc. Prolonged/repeated contact with water or chemicals (soap, lotion, etc) may cause oxidation of the metal and change overall appearance of the piece.
3. Be mindful to avoid dropping or knocking your piece. Common sense, but especially exercise careful practices with pieces using raw stones or large specimens.
4. Will copper turn your skin green?
Maybe! Maybe not!
All of my pieces have gone through a special sealing process where I have applied a clear coating on the finished metal. This is usually enough to prevent skin marks on most people, however it is still possible that you may have a reaction. This is more likely with rings than necklaces. Any discolorations are harmless and wash away easily.
Color change due to contact with copper is typically indicative of an acid body- drinking more water and having a more balanced diet will help!
You can also paint the inside of ring bands with clear nail polish if the clear coat begins to wear away :)
What are the Benefits of Copper?
Copper is a wonderful and natural metal that has been used (and even preferred) in jewelry for ages. It is an element which is conductive and high vibration. It was believed in ancient times that wearing copper jewelry allows your skin to absorb beneficial minerals which can help fight inflammation, pain, and stiffness, though these statements are not necessarily supported by all doctors today.
