All CINDRE jewelry is created by hand, by Claire. Nothing is outsourced, mass produced, or cast in bulk. Every single piece has been constructed lovingly, in small quantities and with a keen attention to detail.
CINDRE utilizes high quality sterling silver and jeweler's brass sourced locally in Albuquerque. All earring studs are sterling silver, and all sterling is naturally nickel-free. All stones are the highest quality cubic zirconia, allowing for an affordable price point. Don't be fooled, though, this type of cubic zirconia is known for its intense sparkle, and mimics the quality of a diamond with little discernible difference. Jeweler's brass can be known to tarnish (as any metal will, with prolonged exposure to moisture) - so for the best maintenance, it is suggested to minimize submerging jewelry in water and store all pieces in a sealed baggie or jewelry box. All CINDRE shipments include a polishing cloth.
