Do Natural Stone Necklaces Need Any Special Care?
In general no, or at least, no more so than other necklaces made with the same materials. Some stones are more durable than others, but as long as you aren’t exposing the stones to potentially damaging conditions they should be fine.
That said, it’s not a good idea to wear any jewelry, including natural stone jewelry, in the shower or pool, and you should limit all jewelry’s exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals, detergents, impact, and unnecessary moisture.
Are Your Natural Stone Necklaces Hypoallergenic?
Yes. All of my natural stone jewelry is handmade with hypoallergenic materials to help make sure as many people as possible can enjoy my creations.
After all, a metal allergy shouldn’t mean that you can’t fully express yourself in jewelry and decorations!

Are Your Natural Stone Necklaces Made In The USA?
Absolutely. I’m proud that all of my handmade jewelry is , in my Colorado workshop.
As an added bonus, that means that the natural world I use to inspire my handmade jewelry designs is local as well. So my jewelry is inspired by the raw beauty of the US wilderness.
Are Natural Stone Necklaces Good For Everyday Wear?
Natural stone necklaces, from birthstone jewelry sets to your favorite natural stone designs are always appropriate. There are a range of style options from the most casual to the most formal. But no matter where you're wearing a handmade necklace, the most important thing is that you feel confident and happy you’re wearing it.
Are Natural Stone Necklaces Appropriate For Work?
Yes, depending on your workplace’s dress code. Some workplaces don’t allow jewelry because it could be a safety hazard, or have specific limitations on what kinds of jewelry can be worn for a wide variety of reasons.
That said, if your employer allows jewelry, and you feel good wearing handmade jewelry and natural stone jewelry to work, then go right ahead! The right natural stone jewelry choices can even help you look more put together and professional.
Is Your Jewelry Eco Friendly?
Yes, in as much as that is possible. My jewelry uses natural stones, and I carefully source my materials to help make sure that my supplies are as eco-friendly and environmentally responsible as possible.
After all, if you love the natural world and are inspired by it, it’s also important to protect the natural world.
I also give a portion of my profits to Conservation Colorado and other green initiatives that work to reduce environmental harm, lower our individual and collective carbon footprint, and restore natural areas.
If you are interested in buying from eco-friendly artisans and retailers, you should keep an eye out for businesses supporting these kinds of initiatives, and for Green Friday sales instead of Black Friday ones.
