GARNET:JANUARY

The word garnet is derived from the Latin word granatus meaning “grain” or “seed”. Legend says that Noah hung a large garnet in the ark for illumination. It is believed that the garnet gives the wearer guidance in the night and protection from nightmares. According to the ancient Egyptians, it is an anecdote for snakes bites and food poisoning. Garnet jewelry has been dated all the way back to the bronze age. Anyone who is subject to depression should carry a garnet with them as it encourages joy, willpower and hope while its beautiful fiery red color drives away tiredness and stimulates the imagination.

DIY- Clean your jewelry at home!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

jewelry cleanertoothbrush1: JEWELRY CLEANER- You can find this at any local jewelry store! We have it priced at $3.00 per bottle (it will last FOREVER). Ours comes with its own mini brush, but i always suggest a regular tooth brush since it works a little bit better!

2: TOOTHBRUSH- It will scrub away all the lotion, dirt and everything else that sits in your jewelry!

Let your piece soak in the solution as desired.  Ten minutes should do the trick! After it soaks take it out and brush it very gently with the toothbrush. Brush the stones and even the metal for the most shine and sparkle!

After it has been brushed, place it back into the solution to make sure that all of the leftover dirt has been removed! Let it soak for another five minutes to ensure that everything is out of the ring! Remove the ring and wipe it off with a soft cloth! Your ring should be extra sparkly.

DONT’S:

do not use toothpaste!

do not replace this method with getting your jewelry checked and cleaned professionally.

do not soak sterling silver- it will tarnish.

DO:

use this as a secondary cleaning method, with also getting your jewelry checked and cleaned at least twice a year by professionals.

use on gold, platinum and lightly brush silver.
