An Important Note About Our Jewellery and Accessories
Our quality jewellery and accessories, handcrafted from 24-carat gold-plated bronze, 24-carat gold-plated pewter and natural materials (tagua nut, freshwater pearls, turquoise, coral, onyx, leather), are unique. As a result, the colors, materials, proportions and finishes may to some extent differ from the pictures and information on the site.
Tagua nut is an environmentally sustainable material that comes from the palm species Phytelephas aequatorialis native to the rain forests of South America. Tagua trees produce several bushels of seed pods a year with up to 100 nuts per pod; these nuts are then harvested, dried, dyed and crafted into uniquely beautiful pieces of jewellery that never look alike. Tagua is also recognized as vegetable ivory, because its appearance, density and texture are similar to real ivory.
