MATERIALS + PRODUCT CARE
We use hundreds of naturally sourced materials and include origins and descriptions of each alongside every design.
Check out where we source as well as our ethical standards, values and compliances here.
Taking care of jewelry keeps it clean and looking great, so when you have a moment to part with it, follow these tips and tricks—
BONE + HORN
The bone and horn from our collections are naturally sourced in India, Africa, Tibet and Nepal and consist of cow, water buffalo, camel, and yak. All of the horn and bone is recycled or “of earth”; collected only through the process of natural origin, in keeping with our ethical standards and environmental values. Because of that, our bone and horn designs are truly one of a kind and offered on a limited supply.
Clean and polish bone and horn with a dry jewelry polishing cloth to remove any grit and to bring out the shine after wearing for long periods of time. Never wipe or wash with water or oil.
Our deer tan leather is a soft, durable and flexible Italian calf hide (top 5%). It is naturally sourced from Italy and dyed in the United States.
We recommend using the dry x damp x dry method to clean leather: wipe it down with a dry cloth, quickly repeat with a lightly dampened cloth, and then finish with a dry cloth. Lay flay to dry. Do not use soaps or cleansers on deer tan leather lace. Always keep leather products in a cool, dry place. To avoid cracking and brittleness, do not store in plastic or exposed sunlight for long periods of time.
Our naturally sourced, high quality semiprecious gemstones are each treated with a high gloss, semi gloss or matte finish. After a period of time, even gemstones deserve a little love— to keep them always looking brand new, clean at least once a month.
In a bowl of warm water, place a drop of mild liquid soap and allow the stones to soak for two minutes. Rinse them off with warm water and then gently wipe dry with a clean cloth.
METALS | BRASS + COPPER
All of our metal components are filled (never plated) and specify their material composite and country of origin in the designs product description.
If you have an itch to get crafty- this should do it! Cut a lemon wedge and rub it (back and forth) over the metal, then rinse with warm water and wipe dry with a soft, clean cloth. For tougher tarnishes, scratches and moldings: make a paste with baking soda and water (2 | 1 ratio). With an old tooth brush or cloth, apply the paste. Brush gently, rinse with warm water and dry with a soft, clean cloth.
