All of our pieces are handcrafted in Indonesia. We extensively reviewed many manufacturers before choosing the one we chose. Our manufacturer is a very small business that aims to stimulate the local economy. It was important to us to ensure that all workers within the manufacturer are paid fair wages and have a safe and supportive work environment.
Our pieces are made from expertly crafted, high-quality, recycled metals. We currently have vermeil and sterling silver jewelry. This does not include vintage items.
18k Gold Vermeil:
Unlike traditional gold plating, gold vermeil is high-quality sterling silver plated in a very thick layer of gold. As per the Federal Trade Commission, vermeil must have a minimum of 2.5 microns of gold. Gold vermeil is an ideal option for those with metal allergies and is an affordable (yet still luxurious) alternative to solid gold pieces. Our gold vermeil jewelry has been ethically and sustainably handcrafted using 18k gold overlaid 100% certified recycled sterling silver. All of our sterling silver pieces are stamped with “925” and our logo.
Our silver pieces are made from 100% certified recycled 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. We plate our silver jewelry in fine silver, which gives it extra shine and durability. Fine silver has a lower percentage of copper than sterling silver. All of our sterling silver pieces are stamped with “925” and our logo.
Measure your finger. We recommend using a strip of paper that you can mark with a pencil to size. Wrap firmly (but not too tight!) around the finger where you would place the ring. Hold the string up to a ruler for exact circumference.
Measure a ring that you already own. We recommend measuring the inside diameter for this. Make sure this ring fits well on the finger you desire to wear your new ring!
Use our international ring sizing table to determine your ring size! If you are between sizes, use the closest size. Make sure you use the circumference if you measured your finger, and diameter if you measured a ring!
If you are still not confident with your sizing, please contact us!
Maintaining your jewelry pieces is easy! If you follow the below advice, your jewelry will last years. It is important to remember that all metal is susceptible to natural wear and will eventually oxidize, fade or require expert maintenance in its lifetime.
Can I wear my jewelry while I exercise?
We recommend taking off your jewelry while you exercise, so you can guarantee the longevity of your pieces.
What about in the shower or pool?
Again, we recommend avoiding it.
Is there anything else I need to avoid?
You should try and keep your pieces from perfume, cosmetics, and body and hair sprays.
Store your jewelry in a secure pouch (like the one it comes in), box, or air-tight container out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
We recommend using a soft flannel cloth for vermeil, and a silver polishing cloth for silver, to buff your jewelry. Do not rub or use metal cleaners.
Our pieces are made from authentic, luxury buttons and charms. These may have been from old clothing, purses, or shoes. We are continually searching thrift stores and boutiques to bring you these beautiful pieces.
This is dependent on each unique piece. Please refer to the product description for each piece to see the materials.
As these pieces are all unique, we cannot always ensure how they will wear. We always try to use the highest quality materials possible, while keeping the pieces affordable! Please refer to the care instructions.
As a small jewelry business, we have noticed the amount of waste and harm to the environment involved in creating and packaging jewelry.
All of our jewelry is made with 100% certified recycled metals and the latest technology to decrease waste and harm to the environment. Small business owners handcraft our packaging. We worked with many incredible people to create packaging from recycled materials that can be recycled as well!
Our shipping boxes are made from recycled materials and are 97&% post-consumer content. They can be curbside recycled and are naturally biodegradable. The shipping tape is certified compostable and recycled. It is made from recycled materials.
Our note cards are certified compostable, curbside recyclable, and are made from recycled materials. Our shipping labels are zero waste. They are 100% recycled & curbside recyclable. Our packaging box is custom-made from recycled cardboard and is curbside recyclable.
We use an application to help us neutralize carbon emissions with each order shipped. Each month, the cost of our carbon footprint for shipping is calculated and donated to forest protective initiatives.
