At OXFORD SCARAB we craft our jewellery with high quality materials from Grade A semi-precious gemstones to genuine zircon crystals and we want your jewellery to last you a long time so we’ve prepared this guide to help you care for your jewellery.


This is key to making sure your jewellery lasts. If your jewellery is too small when it comes to stretch bands, it will wear faster and it won’t feel very comfortable. It is better to have a bracelet that is bit loose than too small. Please go to Bracelet size guide located on the top for help if you are unsure what size you are.


Many of our bracelets are made with high quality stretch cord, but this doesn’t mean you should attempt to stretch it out. All elastic cording will loosen slightly with repeated wear over time, this is normal.


Gemstones are gifts from the earth and each one is unique and carries different energy. Gemstones are rated on a Mohs scale according to their hardness, but this doesn’t have any baring on their quality. You should avoid dropping your jewellery on hard surfaces, this may cause damage.


We use a variety of metals in our jewellery from karat plated gold and silver to gold filled and sterling silver. All plating on plated pieces will wear off over time and may also experience a patina due to oxidation. There are many factors that contribute to this including; improper cleaning & storage, moisture & humidity, rubbing against hard surfaces, etc. It is important to gently wipe your metal jewellery clean of oils, moisture and debris with a very soft cloth. This will keep it looking its best.


Gemstones & metals should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth, never washed. Do not wear your jewellery while bathing, showering or swimming. Avoid using ultrasonic devices or abrasives to clean your jewellery.


We recommend storing your jewellery in the packaging we include with each piece or on a similar fashion so that it does not become tangled or damaged with other jewellery or items.
