Jewelry Care

Thank you for your interest in Bertha's Bits & Baubs handcrafted jewelry! Our charm bracelets are made of recycled vintage chain, watches and crystal charms. Our greatest wish is that your jewelry is always cared for and treasured. We suggest that you do the following to ensure that your bracelets and other jewelry are kept in the best condition for many years:

1. When not in use, store your jewelry in see-through zip-lock bags, which will not only protect the crystals and stones, but prevent scratching against other jewelry and tangling.

2. Except for earrings, it is best to not shower or swim while wearing your jewelry.

3. To keep your crystal charms and earrings sparkling, clean them by dipping an old toothbrush in a small cup containing 2 parts water to 1 part ammonia (glass or jewelry cleaner). A gentle scrubbing of the crystals will remove film and loosen residue. Rinse thoroughly in clear water and pat dry with a paper towel.
