WHICH MATERIALS ARE YOUR PIECES CRAFTED FROM?adminsheidaWe only use the finest materials possible – for us, this doesn’t just mean using the purest gold, diamonds and pearls we can find, but also insisting on only using materials that meet our meticulous ethical standards. We’re setting new industry standards for responsible sourcing.
WHAT’S THE QUALITY OF YOUR STONES?adminsheidaAll of our white diamonds are graded VS or above for clarity, and Colorless (D to G) color. Each product page contains detailed information about its specific cut and carat. All of our pearls are freshwater AAA graded pearls.
WHERE IS SHEIDA FARROKHI JEWELRY MADE?adminsheidaAll our pieces are handmade by master craftspeople right here in Houston, Texas. Not only does this help us to keep prices affordable by avoiding costly import taxes, it also means we can catch up in person with our makers, keep an eye on your order and work closely to produce the most beautiful pieces possible.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE VARIOUS GOLD OPTIONS?adminsheidaPure gold (24-karat) is much too soft to wear as jewelry, so other metals are added to pure gold to enhance its durability. It’s about striking the perfect balance between the warmth and purity of gold and adding just enough alloy to ensure the jewelry’s longevity, or to give it a particular hue like white or rose gold. We use 18k gold for our jewelry which is made of 75 percent pure gold and 25 percent of alloys.
