What is 14 K Gold Filled? How long will it last?
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. Gold filled has a lifespan of about 10 - 30 years.
(One month wear of gold plated VS 3 years of wear of gold filled)
Is any of Live Free's pieces plated?
No, all items, pieces and parts are 925 Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled. With Grade A to AAA semi precious stones.
Is my Jewelry safe to wear in the shower?
Yes all metal jewelry is completely safe to wear in the shower (*however the jewelry may lose it shine due to soaps and residues so regular cleaning is recommended) The stones too are safe to wash in the shower with exception to water soluble stones (IE: Selenite, Calcite, Gypsum, Malachite, Sodalite, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise, Desert Rose and Opal).
* Malas are not recommended to be worn in the shower as the beads tend to dry out and could crack. The same is true for Lava stones.
What does "Reiki Infused" mean?
Gemstones carry a vibration by the type of crystal or stone and that gives them a special meaning all their own. Reiki as a healing energy, can be “sent” (similar to a blessing) to your jewelry to enhance the already existing properties of the stones. This “empowers” the stones by enhancing your intention.
Both general and custom intentions are welcome! There is no charge for this. Just indicate your desired intention in the notes of your order and if the intention is a white light intention i will be sure to infuse that intention for your highest good.
How do I "cleanse" my crystals?
Crystals, like any life absorb energy. Now, this is not a bad thing it just may need a quick "refreshing" to ensure your crystals healing abilities are working at full capacity. You can clear your crystals by:
- Washing with cool water
- Placing them in the light of the full moon (ideally outside) * be careful with clear spheres as the light can pas through them and heat the surface they are sitting on in the morning.
- Burning incense or smudging
- Reiki ** At Live Free, all our crystals go through rigorous cleansing process even before they are displayed for sale. Upon purchase, general of specific intentions can be Infused depending on client request.
- Vibration Sound healing
- Placing stones on Selenite
