3 tips for caring for druzy jewelry

I am obsessed with druzy jewelry. When I first saw it popping up in pieces I thought it'd be a fad that I'd quickly be over, but I couldn't have been more wrong. I love how it's the perfect amount of sparkle for everyday wear without running the risk of people asking you why you're so dressed up to run errands. I also love how they're natural stones so every piece is a tiny bit different. But one thing I don't love is when it loses its beautiful shiny sparkle. I feel like when druzy jewelry first started becoming popular everyone was buying piece after piece, but we had no idea how to take care of it. My first instinct is always to use a damp cloth, but that's the fastest way to ruin a druzy piece not that I would know from experience or anything. Today I thought I'd share a few tips for caring for druzy jewelry.




1. Make your druzy jewelry the last thing you put on and first thing you take off. Make sure you put on your lotion, perfume, self tanner, etc and give it time to set before you start piling on the druzy. I'm really bad about this because I'll be completely dressed and ready to walk out the door before I remember that I should probably put some lotion on my legs.

2. Absolutely do not get in the shower, pool, wash dishes, or work out with druzy jewelry. I've never understood how people do that anyway, but if you're one of those girls who it doesn't bother just make sure you don't with your druzy jewelry.  Druzy stones are like a sponge so they'll soak up water leaving them looking dull. I also usually take off any rings before washing my hands to be extra careful.

3. Store your druzy jewelry in a separate dry area, so not your bathroom. Even if they don't receive direct contact with water living in a humid environment is not good for druzy jewelry's health. It's also good to not just throw them all together in a drawer and instead use separate dishes or hooks so they have room to breathe.

This one is seriously so stunning in person I've had it mistaken for an engagement ring 

One of my favorite places to buy druzy jewelry is Wrenn Jewelry. All the pieces are handmade in California and y'all know how much I love supporting small business and made in America products. Everything is very affordable and they'll even do custom pieces.

So if you've ruined previous druzy jewelry pieces because you didn't know how to care for them or just want more now's a great time to treat yourself! If I weren't in the middle of my no spend month I'd be ordering these fun tassel earrings, or if you like someone a little more understated this gold teardrop necklace is a stunner.
