What are your jewelry pieces made from?

Each of our pieces is completely crafted by hand by master artisans in the Philippines using real seashells, therefore any variation in size, shape, or color is natural and adds character to the piece, making each one completely unique. 
Our pieces are handcrafted from brass and plated in 24kt gold, with the highest quality finishing. Everything is nickel and lead-free. Our earring posts and backings are stainless steel.

How do I care for my Susanne Verallo jewelry?

Please handle your jewelry with care. Our pieces are crafted from 24kt gold plated brass and will naturally wear over time. Depending on personal pH levels of skin, some people may experience jewelry wear more quickly than others. To reduce the effect of wear, gently wipe with a soft, dry cloth after each use and store in the pouch provided or in a ziplock bag, away from direct heat and sunlight.
Keep away from abrasive surfaces, liquids, and moisture. Avoid exposure to makeup and perfume. Please do not swim/bathe/shower/exercise/sleep with your jewelry and avoid long exposure to humidity. Avoid dropping your jewelry as the impact may weaken or break the piece. Do NOT use liquids or chemicals to clean.
Susanne Verallo will not be held responsible for any damages that may occur by foregoing the above recommendations.
