Yes. All of our stone beads are produced from the highest quality natural stone available. We do not use imitation stone or synthetic beads of any kind.
We make all of the sterling silver and 22 karat gold plated beads in our Kartini Studio bead workshop in Bali. Because we are not resellers, we are able to offer lower prices than our competitors.
Only wholesale. Contact us with inquiries about availablity and pricing.
The gold plating is double thickness and is therefore more durable than regular gold plating. The gold will last for several years with moderate wear. As with all gold plated jewelry, daily wear will shorten its lifespan. Gold plated jewelry should not be worn during swimming, sports, or in the shower. Contact with any kind of chemical should be avoided.
We use 1mm thick silicon stretch cord for 8mm and 10mm bead bracelets, and 1.2mm thick silicon stretch cord for 12mm bead bracelets. Silicon cord has a much greater tensile strength than traditional elastic cord, and as a result does not snap under pressure.
We use 0.5mm thick stainless steel wire in our beaded necklaces. Stainless steel is hypoallergenic, anti corrosive, and long lasting.
Yes. All the stone inlay cuff bracelets are made with solid sterling silver and stamped 925.
After sanding, hand grinding, and polishing, two coats of clear acrylic sealant are applied to the inlaid stone surface. The same process applies with different wood inlays. This protects the cuffs from the elements. However, cuff bracelets should not be worn whilst swimming or bathing, and any contact with chemicals should be avoided.
In most cases, beaded bracelets and necklaces will be shipped within 24 hours, and delivered within one week from the order date. Customers will receive a tracking number along with their confirmation of shipping email. On average, cuff bracelets take 2 weeks to make. Consequently, most cuff bracelets are delivered within 3 weeks of the order date.
An order for a beaded bracelet or necklace can be changed or cancelled at any time before it is shipped. After the shipping is confirmed, the customer must return the order within 30 days of receipt to receive either a replacement item or a full refund. Orders for cuff bracelets must be cancelled within 24 hours of the order date.
If the bracelet doesn't fit then it means an incorrect wrist size was selected at the time of order. The bracelet can be returned within 30 days for a free re-make. The customer would be responsible for all the shipping costs.
