Please note that all photographs are the best possible representation of a product, but due to the nature of the products we offer, variations may occur. Each gemstone is unique and will therefore not be identical to the one in the picture, although we do endeavour to keep them all to roughly the same size. Handmade jewellery items are also all unique and may differ in small ways from the published photo. Where possible we have listed lengths and sizes and have given dimensions.
If you are unsure of anything or require more information, please contact us directly by email @ email@example.com.

JEWELLERY CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Our gemstone jewellery items are all handmade using good quality materials. Please treat them as delicate items. Please do not shower or swim while wearing any of our handmade items and make sure to store them once you have removed them. Keep your jewellery away from harsh chemicals and abrasive substances. All gemstones have natural fracture lines which can cause them to crack under undue force.
Our Malas are hand knotted on natural silk which stretch slightly with time, but if you follow the care instructions, this is greatly minimised. Do not wear your Mala while sleeping, exercising, or in any situation where it could be snagged. Unless you have bought a special hand Mala, do not wrap it around your wrist. Avoid water, excessive sweat, or harsh chemicals, as this will shorten the life of your mala.
Sterling silver items are easily cleaned by using warm water, dishwashing liquid and a soft toothbrush. We do not recommend that you use any of the commercial dipping fluids available.
We will gladly repair any handmade jewellery that breaks within 3 months of purchase, provided it is due to manufacturing fault and not due to snagging, yanking or misuse. We require a proof of purchase. After this period we charge a repair fee. Please deliver the item to us at our Hout Bay Shop in person or by courier at your expense. Unfortunately we cannot replace any broken chains as it difficult to prove how breakage occurred. Please check chains carefully upon receipt.
