FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
We make contemporary, classic, statement and fashion jewelry which incorporate semi-precious stones. We produce rings (sizes 5-12 by ¼ sizes), earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, and chains. Our non “mainstream” lines include OOK, body jewelry, wood, gothic and pretty much anything else in our back catalog of over 17,000 items.
Unlike other companies we are directly involved in all stages of making jewelry: from initial sketches and designs, through casting, stone cutting and polishing, and setting the final pieces. We can fill any size order from 1 item through thousands of identical pieces with a great emphasis on Quality Control. Customers can order from any of our stock items or come to us with an idea and we will fulfill their dream.
When our artists find an interesting stone or piece of glass, instead of cutting it they let their imaginations run wild and create a piece of jewelry which will never be produced again. Each OOK is a wearable collector’s item.
We are the manufacturer, and we are never out of stock.
Everyone from individuals who want one piece of jewelry to large retail chains who require thousands of pieces for hundreds of stores. We can ship to almost anywhere in the world.
The base metal for all our jewelry is 925 (sterling) silver, the highest and most resilient grade of silver. We may finish the silver with gold or produce items of solid gold, anywhere from 9 karat to 18 karat.
We mainly use opaque and translucent semi-precious stones in our jewelry. Larimar and turquoise are opaque stones; citrine, peridot and amethyst are translucent stones. For special orders we can also use precious stones such as diamonds, rubies and sapphires.
All of our materials are ethically-sourced.
Larimar is a rare opaque semi-precious stone found only in a couple of square kilometers in the Dominican Republic. Good Larimar is deep blue in color with white lines snaking through the stone, like looking through clear ocean water at the white sand below. Beyond Silver is probably the largest producer of Larimar jewelry in the world.
Different types of gemstone have different prices, and even within the same type of gemstone the size and cut affects the price.
All of our items are guaranteed for 30 days for manufacturer’s defects with full replacement.
All silver jewelry will tarnish but we always apply a finishing such as rhodium to retard tarnishing. We also deliberately finish some pieces using an oxidation process giving them a slightly “old” look.
