For jewelry that has been gold-, silver- or rhodium-plated expect the plating to fade over time. This happens unavoidably to all plated jewelry but with extra care you can extend the life of the plating. The speed at which the plating fades depends on multiple factors like your skincare products, level of perspiration or even your skin PH. Avoid contact with soap, perfume, hairspray, lotion or other face or body products. We recommend that you remove your jewelry when showering, swimming, washing your hands, styling your hair or using cleaning agents, as this will damage the plating.

For solid sterling silver jewelry, expect the silver to tarnish. Silver is a metal that reacts to air and humidity and therefore gets oxidized. It is an unavoidable natural process but thankfully it can be reversed (see below how to clean your jewelry).

Be extra careful with jewelry with stones and pearls. Stones are fragile and may break, crack or get scratched.

Store your jewelry away from direct sunlight and in their original packaging or in velvet jewelry boxes to avoid damage from air, humidity and contact with other items. Make sure that the storage area has low humidity. You can place a piece of chalk or a small bag of silica gel in the storage area to minimize tarnish.

Clean your sterling silver or fine jewelry by soaking them for a few minutes in warm soapy water. Then rinse well and gently rub them with a soft microfiber cloth. Do not using paper towels or harder cloths to avoid scratching. Do not immerse your gemstone or pearl jewelry to jewelry cleaning or polishing solutions.

If in doubt, it is preferable to seek professional cleaning services from a goldsmith or a reputed jewelry shop.

ARIADNI KYPRI

Coming from an artistic background Ariadni Kypri has been experimenting with techniques and materials since she was a young girl. She embarked in a journey of investigating plasticity while experimenting in her mother’s ceramics workshop.

During her costume design studies, while she was investigating the amazing outfits of the acrobats, she got fascinated by the world of circus. She started to devise ceramic figures in acrobatic poses, but her desire to create smaller and more delicate objects soon revealed the limits of clay and triggered a challenging game between form and matter. Through silversmithing, her micro-sculptures reached the minimalistic delicacy she was looking for and she was able to tell unique stories using the silhouette as a narrative.

Ariadni creates absolutely abstract or extremely figurative pieces of jewelry. She uses a slow process of observation, experiment, devotion and respect, creating designs linked to her values through a sustainable flow: She consciously picks pebbles one by one and chooses her collaborators with care.

She experiments with a variety of materials trying to create three-dimensional wearable art pieces, that don’t have a front and back side, like traditional jewelry.

After leaving her career in the fashion industry, Ariadni presented her first jewelry collection in 2011 and since then, she has participated in various exhibitions in Greece and abroad. She has collaborated with more than 40 stockists and galleries all around the world.
