Jewellery


All of Pure Aura's Necklace chains are made with sterling silver .925, & while buying beautiful jewelry is fun and exciting, nothing ruins the mood more than it being tarnished. For this reason, most of us dread the cleaning process and fear that our silver is forever ruined. We have put a list below on handy tips for long-lasting jewellery.

  • Avoid the Shower. It's not a great idea to shower with your jewelry on, but once in a while isn't going to do any lasting damage. Just make sure to dry it after.

  • Do not wear in the Swimming Pool. Take your silver off. Chlorine is a pretty harsh chemical, so if you accidentally forget to remove your silver jewelry before hopping in, make sure to rinse and clean it afterward. 

  • Hot Tub. The same idea as the swimming pool, but there's even more chlorine in the hot tub and the heat can accelerate the chemical reaction. 

  • Hot Springs. The sulfur in natural hot springs will wreak havoc on your silver. Unless you're going for that "dark oxidized" look, avoid at all costs. 

  • Try to avoid lotions. Chemicals in lotions and perfumes can also cause your jewelry to tarnish. Apply them first, let them dry, and then put your jewelry on. This alone can make a HUGE difference in your silver's luster. 

  • Store your storage in a safe place, don't let it sit just anywhere that it could be exposed to water or too much air exposure. 

  • It's best to store silver in individual, air-tight bags with anti-tarnish properties. These types of bags keep air exposure out and keep the shininess and brilliance intact.

  • Silver is delicate, and, despite our best efforts, it can still get dirty. Fortunately, sterling silver care can be as easy as a fast rubdown. To do this, use a simple microfiber cloth or special jewelry cloth (not paper towels or toilet paper) to clean your goods. 

  • If your jewelry does get dirty or tarnish, don't fear as there are various ways you can clean it.

 

For our items of jewellry that are made with crystals, we highly recommend you refer to the crystals section. Alternatively, you can email us on info@pureaura.com.au if you have any questions and we would love to help!  

 


Crystals

 

All crystals are unique like you and me, and we all have our own way of cleansing negative energy..just like crystals!

We try and put as much information as possible on our site however there is a lot! The safest way to cleanse your crystals is with selenite or sage, these are the go-to & the one shoe fits all of the cleansings! However, if you do not have selenite or sage and would like to use a different method, please contact us or do your research! For example...Rose Quartz can be cleansed by bathing it in water or having it sit in the moonlight, however, selenite CANNOT be put in water. Each Crystal really is different, so we would much rather you contact us if you are unsure on how to cleanse your crystals or even on where is the best place to sit them. 

 

Candles

We love our candles and we hope you love them too! We just have to get a little serious real quick..then back to the fun stuff! It is important that you follow some safety rules when burning our candles, failure to do so significantly increases the risk of a wax pool fire. If the candle wax pool becomes superheated, the candle may spontaneously erupt into flames which may also risk the glass to shatter. Please see below our candle care instructions:

  • Safely remove the large crystal within the first 5 minuets of your first burn; this will ensure a better & safer burn plus you will also have a lot less wax on the crystal to wash & use. You can do this by blowing the candle out and using pliers to grab the crystal. Leave the small crystal chips to continue to infuse the candle with their properties.

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep.

  • Follow the 2-foot rule – don’t place a burning candle within two feet of clothing, books, curtains or anything flammable.

  • Never leave your candle burning longer than 3 hours at a time

  • Keep lit candles away from draughts, ceiling fans, and any air currents. Any form of air current can cause uneven burning, smoking, diminish the scent throw and even decrease the burn time.

  • Trim the wick to 5mm each time before the candle is lit. This helps prevent the flame from getting too large.

  • Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.

  • Place candle on a stable & heat-resistant surface that is sturdy

  • Always read and follow manufacturers’ directions for use and safety, and extinguish a candle if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container.

  • Place burning candles at least 10cm apart from one another. A burning candle should not be used as a nightlight.

  • Do not burn the candle if the container is cracked, chipped, scratched or damaged in any way.

  • If the candle is burning correctly, it should be constant (not flickering), teardrop-shaped and upright

  • Discontinue use when the wax reaches 10mm-15mm from the bottom of the jar

  • Once the candle has reached halfway, monitor it & avoid using it longer than an hour at a time. 

Now the fun stuff...you get to keep the crystals & re-use them! We highly recommend taking the large crystal out at the start, this will stop it from interfering with the wick and there will be ALOT less wax to clean off it. We remind you to follow safety precautions when doing this, we find the best way to do this as follows:

1. Allow the candle to burn until it's melted about 1cm (approx 10 minutes) or until you can see the crystal is loose

2. Blow out the candle out let it cool down, don't wait too long however as it will be stuck again!

3. Please do not use your hands, pliers are a great way to remove them or you can do it with anything similar!

4. DO NOT REMOVE THE CRYSTAL CHIPS...just grab the big one, the small ones are there to continue to infuse the candle with their properties! Don't worry they will be there in the end ..literally.

To wash your crystals, you can simply do this with warm soapy water as all the crystals I use for my candles are allowed to be in the water.
