How do I care for my jewelry?
The Bow Jewelry pieces are handmade with intricate detail and natural gemstone.Please handle all pieces gently and and with great care. The gemstones are natural which means that each one is unique and may have inclusions that enhance the unique quality of the gem and the piece.
Although our jewelry is made to be passed on from generation to generation, gold plating will not last forever. To help protect your jewels for as long as possible we recommend removing your pieces when bathing, exercising, when using harsh chemicals and when putting on perfume and lotion.
To maintain the vintage appearance and feel, we do not recommend cleaning the jewelry. However, you may use a dry, soft cloth to gently remove dust.
We honour and celebrate this aging process of the jewels as it is part of their journey and story.

On our larger pieces we use mostly brass. Brass is a very durable metal and will give your pieces longevity as you pass them on from generation to generation. In spiritual and metaphysical traditions Brass is the metal that brings out the natural good and inner truth.
The manufacture of brass across the world is highly dependent on the recycling of scrap brass and copper making brass one of the most recycled metals in the world. Brass can be recycled many times over without diminishing the composition so it means that the recycling process can continue tie and again, thus making the metal highly sustainable.
All of our gemstone rings are made with 925 Silver. In astrology, Silver due to the illumination has a close relationship with the Moon. Silver offers positivity and increases love and security. When gemstones are used in silver it is said that the energy of that gemstone reaches the wearer directly.
18kt Gold Plating
Unless the item is left in its 925 silver form, all pieces are 18Kt gold plated. This way the final product takes on the look of a solid gold piece of jewelry. Gold-plated jewelry is a thin layer of gold alloy that's bonded to the base metal of the jewelry. The layer of gold placed on to the surface of will wear off over time. As the pieces will join you on your adventures, their natural aging process will add to the beauty and story of each piece.
