Yes. The crystal, silver and jewelry wire are not affected by water. When done swimming wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth to remove any waterspots to keep the bracelet looking like new.

I use Beadalon 49 strand professional jewelry wire. It consists of 49 strands of stainless steel coated with nylon. It is the strongest yet most flexible jewelry wire available. It also will not kink like other jewelry wires can do.
What is gold filled mean?
There is solid gold (mucho expensive), there is gold plated (a single very thin layer of gold over an inexpensive base metal that will not wear well) and there is gold filled. Gold filled is multiple layers of 14K gold layered over a sterling silver base. Usually 100 times more gold than gold plated. Gold filled will last a lifetime, does not tarnish and is a great alternative to pure gold.
Do you use sterling silver?
Yes! Sterling silver is all we use. It is much better than silver plated and will last a lifetime. Remember to clean your sterling pieces as they will tarnish. Just wipe them with a dry cloth every once and a while and they will stay looking like new for a lifetime.
