All Cristina V. jewelry is hand-made in New York. The majority of the stones we use are natural, either semi-precious or precious, gemstones. Some of these stones may vary ever so slightly in color. Since our jewelry is hand-made, we suggest the following special care:
- When you are not wearing your jewelry, it should be stored in the Cristina V. pouch provided.
- Our jewelry is not meant to be in contact with water, perspiration, and chemicals such as chlorine, sulfur, perfume, detergent and body or suntan lotion.
- Our jewelry is made with precious metals (sterling silver) and also non-precious metals (base metals plated several times with 24K gold- mainly chunky clasps). We also use 14K gold-filled chain, which overtime may become duller, depending on what it is exposed to
