Keeping your MONOLISA crystal jewelry clean and long lasting means properly caring for your pieces. Jewelry designed with crystal elements require special care. The jewelry tips in this blog article will help with maintaining the longevity of your shimmering handmade crystal jewelry pieces. 

Cleaning Steps - Handmade Crystal Jewelry

Prior to cleaning MONOLISA crystal jewelry you will need the following to get started:
  1. Two small bowls
  2. Warm water
  3. Palmolive soap
  4. Soft cloth
Fill your first bowl with warm water and Palmolive soap. In the second bowl pour plain warm water. Soak your MONOLISA jewelry pieces for five minutes in the soapy water. Then rinse carefully with warm water either by soaking the jewelry in the warm water bowl or running it carefully under the faucet. Carefully pat dry with a soft cloth or air dry. Remember not to use any harsh brushes or sponges. For the crystals containing a foil backing - caution not to scratch the foil backing and avoid using any type of brush on the foil. Treat the crystals like glass. They can break or damage if dropped.  On some style earrings the crystal elements easily come off, so don't flip your pieces upside down. The picture below is an example of an earring style where the crystals easily come off.
