All our ceramic models have been made in collaboration with Mantra Pottery (Angad Vohra) in Auroville. Most of them (except black, white and red ones) are glazed with metal luster, which has changing colors according to the light. These changing colors are not easy to show on a photograph and they look better on the original jewel. Metal luster glazes always develop differently with each firing and they cannot be reproduced in the same way. Thus most of our ceramic models are single pieces.
How to care for your Gold-in-Glass Jewellery:
Under normal circumstances our jewellery is quite solid and the gold is preserved in glass forever in perfect condition. Please avoid to drop or bang them on a hard ground. Most of our fittings are made from hypoallergenic (nickel-free) alloys and are suitable for persons with sensitivity to nickel. They usually have a real gold or silver plating, which is not permanent in this climate. To clean the fittings, use a brass or silver polish. Our chains are composed of many tiny metal wires inside of a skin-friendly nylon coating.
Never fold the wire chains! Roll wires gently in a circular fashion for storing or keep them in their natural shape.
