Rubies come from the same mineral group, corundum, as Sapphires, a red Sapphire is called Ruby and for years there have been disputes over where we draw the distinction between Pink Sapphires and Rubies. Steeped in history and folklore, rubies were traded along the famous Silk Road as early as 200 BCE.
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.
