Our luxe collection is made from sterling silver, 24k gold and bronze plated beads that are imported from the Czech Republic. The beads are cut 3 dimensionally, which is why they have a dramatically different and unique sparkle. Like all precious jewelry, you have to treat it with care, use only the softest cleaning cloth (we provide it!) and store it in a safe dry place. Because each piece is crafted by hand, please allow a minimum of two weeks for your order to ship.
