Frequently asked questions
IS ALL OF YOUR JEWELRY HANDMADE?
Yes! All of our jewelry is handmade. We think handmaking jewelry makes it unique and it allows us more creativity. For this reason, please allow us 4-5 business. This doesn't include shipping. Including shipping, most of our products arrive 7-10 business days after you place your order, depending on the delivery method you select at checkout and the destination.
WHAT IS YOUR JEWELRY MADE FROM?
In any of our designs you will find the following two components:
1. Swarovski crystals
2. 14K Gold filled products
In gold filled products, several layers of gold (100% higher quality gold) are bonded to the jeweler's brass versus gold plated, where a thin layer is applied. Gold filled is a step down from solid gold!
We found that gold filled products will not tarnish and are much more valuable then gold plated. Using gold filled allows us to keep our prices down.
The LORRAINE collection is the only line that uses gold plated for the bar bead component. This component was custom made for us after we designed it. The layer of gold needed to be thin making it "too thin" to be gold filled.
