How to Care for a Jade Bracelet

Since ancient times, the Chinese have revered jade as a lucky stone that repels evil spirits and demons. Those who practice crystal healing and meditation believe that jade opens psychic abilities and intuition. Jade also makes undeniably beautiful statues and jewellery. Jade most often comes in green, though lavender, yellow and red varieties exist as well. If you own a jade bracelet, you probably want to show it off. However, you must also take good care of it to prevent these lovely stones from fading.

Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Jade braceletSoft clothUnscented, mild soapWood, felt-lined jewellery box

Instructions

1 Keep your jade bracelet away from cleansers, chemicals and oils as much as possible. Do not apply lotion or perfume when wearing your jade bracelet, and take it off when cooking or cleaning. The chemicals will erode and fade the stones.

2 Avoid exposing your jade bracelet to the sun for long stretches of time. If spending the day outdoors, leave your jade bracelet at home.

3 Clean the bracelet with a few drops of mild soap and some water. Dip a soft cloth in the soapy water and rub it over the jade pieces. Dampen a clean cloth in water to rinse and dry with a third cloth. Use only a dry cloth on C grade jade to avoid leaking colour.

4 Store your jade in a felt-lined jewellery box to keep it out of the light. Choose a wooden jewellery box, such as cedar, that will retain a little moisture. Jade keeps colour best in humid conditions.

5 Avoid banging your jade bracelet against hard objects, like desk corners. Jade is delicate and will chip with hard use. If you can, adjust the bracelet so it doesn’t jangle on your wrist. If you can’t, guard your movements.
