Caring for your pieces
We have one off pieces ethically handcrafted by a families of artisan jewellers in Turkey & India bringing our designs to life. We may only have small amounts in stock of some items at a time due to their handmade nature. This is what makes your items truly unique!
If there is a product you like which is sold out please email us and we may be able to arrange to have a piece made or customised. We can often offer different colour and stone custom orders, so please feel free to ask! Certain items may take a few weeks to come back into stock as we are a small business and items are hand crafted. We may offer a pre order option.
Each item has the materials used specified. We use Silver, Brass and micron gold plating for our pieces along with Natural stones and pearls.
Please be aware everything is hand crafted & the use of natural stones/pearls mean that each piece will differ slightly form the images shown.
We expect to see natural marks and differences in stones and pearls with different textures and looks. These characteristics & natural imperfections on stones and pearl are normal & expected when using precious and natural materials. Some pearls may also have small drill holes which is part of the extraction process worldwide, and the positioning may differ from pearl to pearl. This is not a fault & items cannot be returned on this basis.
Inside every order you will receive a care card reminding you how to care for your pieces.
We recommend storing each piece individually in the box or cotton pouch you receive with your order away from other pieces. We recommend removing jewellery to shower/bathe & avoid contact with sprays,lotions and perfumes as they can rest with the materials.
Occasionally you may be sensitive to materials used such as silver which may leave a black or green mark on the skin. This is usually from reacting with your skin type and any products you may have on your skin. Some people are more prone to this than others and it is not a cause for concern if you aren't experiencing any discomfort. This is NOT a fault and does not mean the pieces are of poor quality, it is simply a reactive process. No returns will be allowed on this basis unless there is damage we deem our fault.
Left out they may tarnish. To clean your pieces we recommend using the complimentary cloth you receive with your order. Please do not use anything else other than a jewellery cloth as this may remove or damage plating.
Please be aware we cannot accept returns on earrings due to hygiene.

How do I care for my jewellery?
All our pieces are completely unique and hand crafted in Turkey & India using brass or Sterling silver pieces covered in thick Gold plating.
Looked after well, these should not tarnish easily if cared for. We recommend :
- Store your jewellery alone in the bag we sent your piece in, with the drawstring pulled closed.
-Do not use any household abrasive cleaners near or on your jewellery as this may cause tarnishing.
-Do not wear your jewellery to do any heavy work or playing sports where they could be bumped or scratched. The materials we use are delicate and therefore being mindful of what you do when wearing them will mean minimal damage.
-Avoid chlorine and swimming wearing your jewellery as this will cause tarnishing
-Do not wear your jewellery in the bath or shower or get soapy product on the jewellery as a build up of residue may occur and tarnishing may occur.
-When getting ready put jewellery on last - lotions, hairspray perfume etc can all tarnish and affect the look of your jewellery.
-Regularly clean and polish your pieces with a jewellery cloth but no other substance.
