Description

Sparkle Opalescent Moon Hoops

These sweet little moons may be tiny but they are packed with lots of sparkles. They are inspired by one of my favourite stones; the opal. I have created my own version with a custom blend of pigments and glitters and the result is these super sparkly little moons that reflect an array of pastel colours when the light hits. They are encased in clear glossy resin within a hammered frame and swing from a dainty ear hoop that has been textured to glitter and twinkle in the light. Very light and easy to wear. These lovely earrings will see you through all seasons and occasions, bringing a touch of magic and whimsy wherever you go.

Care Instructions:

Please treat and wear your jewellery with the utmost care. Never get it wet and avoid snagging, knocking or dropping it. Your jewellery should be cleaned regularly after wear with the provided cloth (metal only, do not use on resin). Your jewellery should not come into contact with any skincare or hair care products or any household cleaning products. It should also be stored away from uv/sunlight. You can find full care advice and tips in our Jewellery Care section. Please follow this advice to ensure your jewellery looks it’s best for as long as possible. A card will be provided with your order with basic care information.

Material Guide

We carefully choose high quality materials for all of our pieces. We are regularly asked about the materials that are integral to our collections so we thought we'd put together a little guide for you. We hope you find it helpful but if you have any further queries please don't hesitate to contact us, we love to hear from you!

14k Gold Filled and Rose Gold Filled

Gold filled jewellery is made by mechanically bonding a solid layer of real gold to a base metal core. Our gold filled jewellery uses 14k gold which is very hard wearing. It will last 10-30 years when cared for properly. In comparison, gold plated jewellery may peel, flake and fade within 12 months. So gold filled jewellery is great for those special pieces that you want to enjoy for years to come.

The gold layer must equate to 1/20th the weight of the item at a minimum.

Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is a classic and many of you probably own many silver pieces already. It is a very durable and versatile metal.

Sterling silver is an alloy made up by weight of 92.5% of silver (hence the "925" stamp) and 7.5% of other metals, most likely copper for strength and durability. It is the addition of copper that can cause silver to tarnish but fear not, you can easily polish your silver jewellery back to a shine with a silver cloth. Though some wearers prefer the look of darkened silver.

Raw Brass

We sometimes use raw brass in our designs. This is often an option we select for larger pendant designs where using gold filled is either not possible or would make the piece very expensive. It has the same beautiful golden yellow colour and is very durable. We polish it to a shine and add gold filled chains. Raw brass will take on a beautiful patina over time, some wearers like this look. But if you prefer it to appear golden, you can easily polish it up again. We prefer this to gold plate as there is no coating to rub away or fade and you can polish it back to a shine whenever you wish meaning that your jewellery will last beautifully for years to come.

Gold Plate and Rhodium Plate

Our plated collections are available in two finishes; gold plate and rhodium plate. These pieces are made from a base metal - usually brass - that has been plated with real gold or rhodium. Our platings are high quality at  3 microns thick.

Plated jewellery isn't as durable as gold filled, sterling silver or solid gold jewellery. It will inevitably fade with wear so be sure to follow our Jewellery Care Guide to ensure it looks it's best for as long as possible. This is not a fault or a flaw, it is the nature of plating, for longer lasting jewellery we suggest sterling silver or gold filled.

Plated jewellery is an affordable way to emulate the look of finer jewellery. It's great for occasional wear and for updating your wardrobe to reflect the latest style trends.

Our plated jewellery is lead, nickel and cadmium free.

Rhinestones, Crystals and Cubic Zirconia

Sometimes we need a little sparkle in our lives and these high quality man-made stones are a great option. We only use Swarovski Crystals, high quality glass rhinestones and cubic zirconias. The stone type will be detailed in the applicable product listings.

Semi-precious Stones

We love to use natural semi precious stones in our designs from time to time. As each one is entirely unique, pieces featuring these stones will be available in limited quantities. We hand pick all stones to ensure they are both beautiful and high quality. Please refer to specific product listings for more information.

Resin

We use hard acrylic resin in our Botanical Collection to encase pressed flowers. Our resin is non yellowing and has a smooth glossy finish and the clarity of glass.

Though it is waterproof, we do not advise getting your jewellery wet. and though it is durable, we advise you take care to avoid scratches: avoid abrasive surfaces and materials and do not store your resin jewellery with anything sharp or abrasive.

Pressed Flowers

We grow and press most of the flowers used in our Botanical Collection ourselves. We firmly believe that wildflowers belong to the bees and should be left in the wild where they belong to be enjoyed by everyone. So we do not pick them for use in our jewellery.

Other Information

As a brand, kindness and inclusivity are our key values. All of our pieces are vegan friendly which means we do not use materials of animal origin including but not limited to leather, fur, feathers, shells, "mother of pearl", silk, pearls or any other animal derived materials.

Jewellery Care

To keep your jewellery looking it's best please read through the care guide below:

  • Avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics, hair products and skin care products.
  • Remove jewellery before bathing, showering, swimming or washing.
  • When dressing add jewellery last to avoid snagging/breakage.
  • At the end of the day remove jewellery first before undressing to avoid snagging/breakage.
  • When not in use, store your jewellery carefully to avoid damage, discolouration and tangled chains.
  • Buff the resin gently with a soft dry cloth to clean. Spectacle lens cleaner is also helpful to remove smudges.
  • Always keep your jewellery dry. This is super important. Water can seep under the resin causing the metal inside to darken or discolour. This will spoil your jewellery as it cannot be cleaned out.
  • We also advise limiting UV exposure to preserve the colour of your flowers for longer. Do not store or leave your jewellery in direct sunlight as this will speed up the fading process.
  • Pressed flowers will maintain their natural colours for some years if cared for correctly. But like many organic materials, they will lose some colour over time, this is entirely natural and cannot be totally prevented.
  • Our chains are of a high quality but please remember that they are not indestructible. Take care not to catch or pull them and handle gently to avoid breakages.
  • If you like to layer your necklaces (and we do!) take care during wear and removal to avoid tangling or breaking the chains.
  • Do not use tools to grip clasps and fastenings as this can cause damage and crushing.
  • Acids in skin, sweat & cosmetic products can cause oxidisation of metals inc brass, silver & gold: This reaction is completely normal and harmless but could leave a darkened or greenish mark on your skin or clothes. You can reduce the likelihood of this occurrence by following the instructions detailed here.
  • Oxidisation and tarnishing is completely normal and will occur on most metals. You can buff the metal back to a shine with a silver or gold cloth. It is important to do this regularly rather than leaving tarnishing to become worse over time as it will then be much harder to clean.
  • We often use crystals and natural gemstones in our designs. Again, please remember that they are not indestructible and can be damaged or cracked if not handled carefully. Opals especially, like all our jewellery should be kept dry.
  • Please note that we will not be held responsible for any damage or breakages caused by accidents and improper care. This includes scratches, dents, broken chains, lost earring backs and any attempts to make alterations.
  • We want you to love and enjoy your jewellery for years to come so if you do have a little accident, please contact us as we aim to offer repairs at very fair prices.
  • If you lose or damage a stone, again we will aim to repair or replace at a fair price where possible. As natural gemstones are completely unique, the replacement stone is likely to be a little different.
