wood and water do not mix well! all our wooden jewelry is untreated and does not have any kind of chemical coating to finish it off.
therefore, never swim with, shower with, fully submerge your jewelry into water or expose it to extreme rains.
most importantly, please never let a baby or young child put your wooden jewellery in their mouth- wood is a porous material, and if you handle it with dirty hands, germs can possibly harbour on the surface of it.
