How do I care for my tasbih?

Tasbih beads are sacred and need to be treated with respect and care. We suggest you clean them with a slightly damp cloth (being careful not to get the silk wet), every so often to remove dirt and dust. Tasbih with sterling silver will need to be polished as real silver can tarnish over time.  Never submerge your jewelry in water or shower while wearing your necklace or bracelet. It’s best to remove when sleeping. Read more here: how to make handmade bracelets last

Will my jewelry look the same as the photo?

Each piece of jewerly is handmade, using natural semi-precious stones. This means each stone will be unique with varying colour and pattern and may have specks of lighter or darker colors, which occur naturally. We feel that this makes each tasbih special and made just for you.
