Your gems are precious, please take care of them!
We recommended that all of our Malas be cared for as the sacred item that they are. When you are not using or wearing the Mala, it is best to keep it in a Mala bag. This will help protect your Mala from breaking.
Do not wear your Mala while bathing, showing, swimming or exercising. We do not recommend wrapping your Mala around your wrist. These things could weaken your Mala and cause it to break prematurely.
If your mala tassel gets unruly simply take damp fingertips and run them over the strands, smoothing them. Do not ever pull on the tassel.
Most of our malas are made to be worn decoratively, as jewelry. It is not recommend that you perform japa mala meditation with them. (If you are looking for a mala for meditation, search the store for "Meditation Malas" which we occasionally have.)
If anything would happen to your Mala, I will happily repair it free of charge within 60 days from date of purchase. After that a $65 repair fee will apply. See our returns page for more info.
We use gold, gold plate, gold fill and gold vermeil in our designs. Plating is noted on the product page.
When you are not wearing your M+M gems, they should be stored in an airtight plastic bag. This will prevent tarnishing and scratching.
Exposure to water, lotions, body oils, cosmetics, perfumes, excessive heat and humidity and cleaning agents may cause discoloration and affect the finish of the jewelry. Please be mindful of what you put on while you are wearing your gems.
The best way to clean your jewelry is with a soft cloth, or polishing cloth. Do NOT use chemicals or solvents to clean your M+M jewelry. Gold and silver plated jewelry should only be wiped gently with a soft cloth to avoid rubbing off the plating.
Following the above guidelines will greatly increase the life of all your jewelry!
