Products 

The images of the Products on our site are for illustrative purposes only. All of our bijoux are hand-made, with components and beads that are produced using machinery or made by hand individually. As a result, the shapes, colours, and sizes of each item and/or component may differ slightly from the image shown.

Our bijoux are carefully created, hand-picking each component. Possible signs of wear may be visible on certain components, and are a result of the machine manufacturing or hand-made process. These do not constitute a fault. Although we have made every effort to display the Products accurately, the products by you received may vary slightly from the images presented. Similarly, the packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our site.

The silver and gold-coated silver wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time. Tarnishing is not a fault, and to avoid this, you may use a lint-free cloth to clean the metals components of your bijoux. Similarly, as the metal components may bend under pressure, we advise that the bijoux be stored and transported in rigid boxes to avoid any external pressure compromising the item. 

Please ensure that your bijoux avoid contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, water, and moisture, as it may lead to discoloration of the resin, plastic and metal components. Similarly, please avoid extreme temperatures, humidity, sunlight, or spotlights, as this will compromise the quality and features of the bijoux. These factors may lead to a fault, and may be avoided by if cared for as outlined above. With regards to general care of your bijoux, we advise that they be kept in a cool, dark and dry place, and be cleaned with lint-free cloths. Tarnishing or discolouration due to chemical contact is not a manufacturing fault.

We are not responsible for any damage due to negligence, and damage or faults caused by wear and tear are the responsibility of the owner.
