To help maintain the organic finish of your jewelry, avoid wearing it while using harsh cleaning agents, and during strenuous activities, such as working out, swimming, rock climbing, and gardening.
Protect diamonds and sapphires from impact, especially from the side, as this may result in chips, breaks, and cracks.
For all of our pieces, maintenance is the key to longevity. We advise that you have your stôn jewelry cleaned and checked by us once a year.
Do not use at-home jewelry cleaners or abrasive cleansing agents as they can damage the patina.
Clean gold jewelry at home by using a mild dish detergent diluted in warm water. Soak your jewelry for up to five minutes, then gently brush on all sides with a soft-bristle toothbrush to help remove any residue.
It is best to protect bronze pieces from prolonged contact with water. Also, oxidation with the natural oils found on the skin may naturally occur (especially in rings). To maintain the appearance of your bronze pieces, wipe them with a lint-free cloth to remove any moisture.
With natural wear, you may notice matte finishes becoming shinier or silver lightening in color. If you would like to renew the original look of your piece, we will do so free of charge for the life of the piece.
Should your stôn piece need resizing, or if it has incurred damage, please contact us. We will send you a Return Authorization Number so you can ship the item to us. Then we will send you a receipt and an estimated date of completion, which is usually around three weeks.
Please note that clients are responsible for the shipping costs to and from our studio for returns, maintenance, sizings, inspections and repairs.
our commitment to sustainability
We strive to leave the smallest possible footprint in our wake. We employ these practices in our studio and the world around us. All of our diamonds adhere to the Kimberly Process (https://www.kimberleyprocess.com). The gold and silver we use is recycled and our bronze is ethically mined. All of our pieces are molded and finished by hand in our LA studio.
