Your bronze looks like gold. Why is that?
We use a proprietary bronze blend that closely mimics the color of 18k yellow gold. I have chosen this particular blend because of the color and beauty. Therefore, it costs a little bit more to create the pieces.

What is bronze?
Bronze is composed of copper and tin. If you have an allergy to either of these metals, I wouldn’t suggest you wear it.

My finger turned black! Why is that?
This can happen when someone wears bronze. It’s not an allergic reaction but a
chemical reaction due to your skin PH. This is a temporary reaction and can easily be washed off with warm soapy water. It can be inhibited by putting a clear coat of nail polish where the skin comes into contact with the jewelry, ie the inside of a ring. It will need to be reapplied as it wears off.

How do I care for my jewelry?
Use a polishing cloth designed for silver and other metals. We sell a wonderful polishing cloth in our store. Or you can use a mild jewelry cleaner, however it is not recommended to use liquid cleaners on gemstones.

I lost an earring! Can I get a replacement? What is the cost?

I’m allergic to nickel. Can I wear bronze?
Yes. Bronze is copper and tin.

What is the black metal that you use?
The black metal is oxidized silver. A special chemical is put on to create the reaction that turns the metal black. It will wear over time and may need to be touched up. You can contact us to re-oxidized your piece at no charge.

If I have a question, how do I get in touch with you?

I only wear gold. Can I have a piece made in gold instead of bronze?
Absolutely! Just get in touch with us at

I bought a necklace from you and it got caught on something and
broke. Can you repair it?
Of course!  Depending on what needs to be repaired, there may be a small charge.  Each repair will be evaluated and cost determined at that time.
