QUALITY & MATERIALS
Every M33Ms piece is hand fabricated in Honolulu, Hawaii. A M33Ms logo stamping is carefully done by hand. All gemstones used for M33Ms jewelry are natural stones, non-heated treated, irradiated or dyed. White Diamonds are set into the pieces each are 1-1.5 point stones, SI-VS clarity and G+ color quality stones. Please keep in mind that all items are individually hand finished, so no two pieces will be identical . Due to natural variations in stones, multiple orders of the same item would not be a complete match in shape and color. All metals used is .925 sterling silver. All darkened metal has been oxidized by surface patina.
Note: oxidation does not affect the value of the silver. Darkening of the metal is normal due to natural oxidation of sterling silver and may be cleaned or polished. Oxidation may occur with chemical reaction with skin, or moisture in the air.
CLEANING & CARE
