is proud to announce that it’s creating itself as a source for
information and products relating to sterling silver, stainless steel,
and natural stones. Owned and operated by woman, our site has a specific collection inspired and gathered by the owner herself, Nara. Her goal is to make elegance and class affordable to everyone.
Our Sterling silver designs, which are inspired by David Yurman, cost only a fraction of what you will find in David Yurman NYC, or Saks Fifth Avenue. Yet the beauty of each item is phenomenal.
Sterling Silver is jumping higher and higher in cost, and our silver
prices still don’t reflect this hike. Because our inventory was
purchased before the price increase, we can still afford to sell silver
at the same rate as two years ago.
Our natural stones are not composite stones, mixed from turquoise
shavings and compressed. Although some items have been created in such
a style, they were chosen to be a part of our collection anyway,
because of their sheer beauty and timelessness: the finest coral , sapphires, rubies, turquoise , opal , onyx , Swarovski crystals , and even “glass”.

is rare, valuable and ornamental stone for thousands of years. The
colors of turquoise are blue, blue-green, and green. Hardness and
richness of color are two of the major factors in determining the value
of turquoise; while color is a matter of individual taste, generally
speaking, the most desirable is a strong sky to "robin's egg" blue.
However, in Tibet,
greener blue is preferred more. Being a phosphate mineral, turquoise is
inherently fragile and sensitive to solvents; perfume and other
cosmetics will attack the finish and may alter the color of turquoise
gems, as will skin oils, as will most commercial jewelry cleaning
fluids. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may also discolor or
dehydrate turquoise. Because of that, cosmetics, including sunscreen
and hair spray, should be applied before putting on turquoise jewelry,
and they should not be worn to a beach or other sun-bathed environment.
After use, turquoise should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth to
avoid a build up of residue, and should be stored in its own container
to avoid scratching by harder gems. Turquoise can also be adversely affected if stored in an airtight container.
