Availability & Care

Jewelry Information

Carmen Q designs are all handmade in the USA so slight variations are normal.

Most designs are available in sterling silver and 14k yellow or rose gold vermeil. Size, color, and shape of pearls and stones will vary slightly from piece to piece. All pearls are true cultured pearls, some have been treated to achieve their unique color. Availability is not guaranteed. 

Jewelry Care

Storing jewelry in a zip locked plastic bag is the best way to keep your jewelry looking its best.

For silver jewelry, unless it is "polished", the jewelry has been first oxidized and then brushed to create a unique matte finish. The most effective way to clean the brushed silver jewelry is to rub the surface forcefully with a scouring pad, taking care not to scratch any pearls or stones.  Do not do this to yellow gold or rose gold vermeil pieces.

Pearls should always be handled with care. Before using jewelry cleaner on pieces with pearls, make sure that it is pearl-safe.
