How do I care for my jewelry?

We use sterling silver in most of our jewelry creations. When left out in the elements, sterling can tarnish. To keep bracelets looking shiny, wear them often, and store them in an airtight container or ziploc when not wearing. If your bracelet does tarnish, you can usually rub off the tarnish with your fingers or use a silver cleaning cloth.

Gemstone jewelry can be cleaned using warm water and toothpaste suds, gently with your fingers. Jewelry can get wet and be worn in the shower. However, the life of most jewelry will be prolonged when you take it off for showering and sleep. Ultimately, this is a matter of personal preference.

Swarovski pearls are crystal pearls that have an enameled coating on them. Over time, the coating on the pearls can rub off. Avoid spraying them with perfume, hairspray, or household cleaners, which may cause a chemical reaction with the coating on the pearls. It is a best practice to put pearl Blessing Bracelets on last when getting ready, and take them off for household chores and projects.

What is your Return Policy?

All products can be returned within 30 days of purchase for any reason. In addition, broken bracelets can be exchanged free of charge within 90 days of purchase.  If the bracelet is over 90 days old, please return at least 75% of the bracelet materials and a $10 fee (checks made payable to MAI or Made As Intended) for shipping and handling. Please mail items in a padded mailer to Made As Intended 3423 Spring Road Oak Brook, IL 60523. Please call customer service at 630-789-3494 or email if you need further assistance.
