How To Care For Your Prayer Beads
We mingle antique and vintage beads with beads that are newly-made. Our beads are wonderful, but they're not indestructible — exercise reasonable prudence:
Care for your prayer beads in the same way you would care for a piece of high quality jewelry. Don't ball them up. Keep them dry. Keep them out of intense heat. Take care not to drop them. If you carry them with you, it's a good idea to keep them in a pouch. To clean the beads, use a soft cloth or soft brush. Water or soap may damage some beads.
Metal pieces will naturally darken. How this natural patina develops depends on the conditions of the atmosphere. Some people like to lightly buff the metal pieces from time to time to shine the high points. For this, we recommend using a Sunshine Polishing Cloth, available at many jewelry stores.
