jewelry care

Each piece of Bohemi jewelry is handmade in our Boulder, CO studio using recycled metals, leather and one-of-a-kind gems and minerals. Each piece requires special care. Here are a few tips to follow to keep your jewels looking beautiful.

We recommend keeping your jewelry out of water to ensure the durability as well as the patina. Please take off your jewelry before swimming or showering. Leather cannot be worn in water as it will stretch and can discolor.

Brass and Sterling silver will tarnish over time. We recommend using a soft polishing cloth to bring it back to a shiny luster. If there is a patina on the piece do NOT use a polishing cloth, instead use soap and a soft tooth brush to clean off the dirt and grime.

Limit jewelry exposure to lotions, perfumes, and chemicals. These can speed up tarnishing, and damage soft stones. We recommend putting on your jewelry last.

We recommend taking your jewelry off before sleeping, especially earrings. Laying on the side of your pillow can distort ear posts and bend fragile pieces.

When traveling we recommend a jewelry case to keep your jewelry safe.

If leather feathers get bent from traveling, you can flip them over and iron on the backside on low with a cotton muslin cloth in between the iron and the leather.

Excessive bending can distort and break pieces. Keep adjustments to a minimum. There is a technique to put on a cuff bracelet. Please see our video on how to put on a cuff bracelet to keep adjustment distortions to a minimum.

Keep out of extreme heat or cold, as both can damage stones.

To recharge gemstones and crystals you can put them in moonlight over night. This also helps to shed any unwanted energy from a previous owner.
