First used to decorate jewellery in ancient Greece, Citrine has been described as the “merchants”, or “money” stone due to the belief it would bring wealth to the wearer. The name is derived from the Latin word for yellow, ‘citrina’ Like all other Quartz-based minerals, it’s the impurities that give rise to their colour, Citrine owes its beautiful honey tones to minute ferric or iron deposits.
The only gemstone to be created by a living animal, pearls form inside a mollusc’s shell when a tiny particle becomes lodged inside. The animal produces a substance called nacre to protect itself and layers of the substance cover the intrusion over time, forming an iridescent pearl. Naturally occurring pearls are extremely rare, most pearls today come from highly sophisticated pearl farms.

Our Jewellery is more than just an accessory, we want you to keep enjoying your Kalapriya pieces for years to come. To maintain your jewellery please keep in mind that Sterling Silver is a soft metal which will naturally oxidise and mellow over time. We recommend keeping your jewellery wrapped in our acid free tissue paper in a dry, cool environment. Always apply perfume and lotions well before putting on your jewellery and removing it before swimming and showering.
A silver cloth is preferred for cleaning as some of the chemical dips can damage the stones and strip the silver of its beautiful lustre.
