Our jewelry is designed in our Brooklyn studio and made exclusively in New York City with quality materials. We work with artisans and family run businesses within the local community for our casting and manufacturing and try to maintain a small environmental footprint.
Our Sterling Silver and 14K Gold is made from 100% SCS certified recycled metals whenever possible. Currently, we are working with our casting house on a new method to recycle Brass. Although not certified, this method of recycling material is a way to practice a more sustainable model for casting Brass.
We are constantly striving to improve our environmental and sustainable practices both in our studio and with our manufacturers.
SHIPPING AND HANDLING
See detailed shipping and handling information here.
Gift Packaging: Your item will arrive ready for gift giving inside of an embossed gift box made from recycled materials (matte-finished recycled paper covers a 100% recycled cardboard box made with 90% post-consumer fiber and 10% pre-consumer fiber, made in the USA).
If you are sending a gift directly to someone, leave instructions in the comments section at checkout and we will enclose a small note with your message.
Your item will also arrive in a reusable poly-bag made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) that is 100% biodegradable and breaks down naturally in the soil once its useful life is finished and a cotton pouch suitable for storage along with a small care card (see Materials and Care for more details).
Eco Packaging: You may also select Eco Packaging during checkout if you would like to reduce the packaging in your order by omitting our gift box. Please note: your box will still contain a biodegradable poly bag, a cotton pouch and recyclable packing material to protect your item during transit.
MATERIALS AND CARE
Your purchase will include a small care card. As jewelry tends to be delicate in nature, please take proper care of your jewelry items, removing them when necessary and storing them properly. Earring latches and post backs tend to loosen over time with wear so please check them frequently and gently squeeze them with your fingers or a small pliers to keep them fitting securely.
Please note that our Sterling Silver, 14K Gold, and Brass are hypo-allergenic, nickel free and lead free.
The inherent nature of metal causes Sterling Silver and Brass and sometimes even 14K to develop a natural patina over time from exposure to oxygen, moisture, and oils in the skin. If you prefer to discourage this process, keep the jewelry clean and dry and store it in an airtight container. You can restore the luster on the surface using a treated polishing cloth.
With Brass, it is possible that some people may have a temporary green or black oxidation mark from the small amount of copper in the metal alloy that reacts with oxygen in the air, sweat and oils in the skin. This varies from person to person and depends on individual unique skin chemistry. Although not harmful, if you are prone to this reaction and would like to discourage it, we recommend purchasing 14K or Sterling Silver jewelry or using a product such as Jewelry Shield.
Stones and pearls may vary in color, shape, and size and may include natural inclusions, all characteristics of working with natural materials.
Odette New York jewelry is designed and made in New York City. Each piece is handcrafted and although we make every effort to ensure the colors and sizes are accurate, there may be slight variations due to the handmade nature of the materials.
