Will my jewelry look the same as the photos?
Each piece of jewelry is handmade, using genuine semi-precious gemstones, so each bead is unique. Sometimes gemstones will have specks and flecks of lighter or darker colors, which occur naturally. As they are un-dyed, they will have variances in color as well. Natural wood, lava, and shell beads will also differ slightly in color and size. Our mala tassels are handcrafted from recycled sari silk and may vary from what is pictured, yet stay in the same color family.
Are the metals you use .925 Sterling Silver or 14k Gold?
The metals Violet Tiger uses are not sterling silver or gold. Typically all metal used in our pieces are handmade and fair-trade from Africa, Bali, Tibet and the Middle East. Generally-speaking, the metal beads have a base of about 75% brass with either copper, silver, iron or all of these mentioned mixed in. Silver, copper, brass plating is buffed on the base service and can last for years. As the beads and pendants are handmade you may expect slight differences from the photos, as well as small irregularities that we find unique and gorgeous!
