FAQs- The Jewellery

Does my jewellery have a warranty?

Yes, all of our pieces come with a 6-month manufacturing warranty, this does not include personal wear & tear or accidental damage.  See Materials and Jewellery Care for more information.

What is my jewellery made from?

We use 925 sterling silver, and 18ct gold plate. Gold plate is a fine layer of gold that covers the silver. Please see Materials and Jewellery Care for more information.

Where do you get your skins?

Our skins come from zoos, reptile shops, and private collectors both in the UK and Portugal. We are forever grateful for these skins as without them, we couldn’t make the jewellery.

Do you need more skins?

Yes! We are always on the lookout for more beautiful skins, especially lizard skins. We are currently coveting lizard skins with spikes or crests. If you have any spare then please do get in touch here. Thank you.

Is your jewellery cruelty free?

We only use the naturally shed skin of snakes and lizards to make jewellery. Therefore, no contact needs to take place between us and the snake or lizard, and it's not harmed in any way. We never use real snake and lizard skin which the animal has had to be killed for. This process was developed because of Jane's love and respect for snakes and lizards. She wanted to celebrate these animals and find a way to wear their beautiful scales without causing them any harm. Please see The Brand for more information.
