What kinds of materials does Calypso's Island use on their jewelry?
At Calypso’s Island we are very fastidious with hand-picking the highest quality materials ourselves. Our beads are made from a variety of precious and semi-precious stones, pearls, glass, sustainable materials such as coconut, wood, nuts, shells, coral, seeds and ethically sourced animal bone. Most of our findings and pairings are 14k gold-filled, vermeil and sterling silver. Some collections are finished with antiqued brass, pewter or stainless steel. Every piece has its materials listed within the product description in the shop. All Calypso’s Island beaded bracelets are strung on a stretch elastic cord along with our 14k gold-filled or Sterling Silver Calypso’s Island logo charm.
What is vermeil
Vermeil is a combination of Sterling Silver with a layer of gold on top. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 9 carat and be at least 1.5 micrometers thick.
Does Calypso's Island use simulated or natural turquoise?
Due to increased demand for turquoise, mines worldwide have become depleted and there is very little natural turquoise left. Because the Sleeping Beauty turquoise is particularly scarce and would make our pieces inaccessible, we have opted to use dyed and stabilized turquoise in some of our jewelry collections. This material comprises genuine natural stones that could be bound with resin, dyed, waxed or stabilized to achieve a beautiful blue hue.
Are the products pictured actual size?
Computer monitors vary in size, so it is impossible to show an actual size image on the Internet. We do however provide meticulous measurements and endeavor to show each piece worn by a model. View our sizing chart here.
Do you make custom pieces?
Requests for custom pieces will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us with inquiries.
