This uniquely distinctive jewelry is created using stainless steel and a proprietary etching technique. The result is a most ethereal, delicate and organic look. Most all designs are offered with either a silver or 24 Kt gold plating. In the case of the silver plating, a clear coat is added to prevent tarnishing. If one of the finishes are not in stock, please do contact us with your request and we can order it. Typically, the gold finished items are $15 more. Orders from Alucik require about a two week lead time.
