MATERIALS AND CARE
All of Maugo jewelry is exceptionally handcrafted using only the finest quality materials.
We work with many different gemstones from organic stones
such as amber or pearls to the most sought-after stones - diamonds.
We source precious and semi-precious stones for their clarity and depth of color.
AmberMost gemstones are minerals, however Amber is not a mineral. What is it then? It is hardened resin of specific species of tress, which have been fossilized over many years. Baltic Amber dates from 45 million years ago! Each of amber stones used in our factory is unique and mined from the Baltic region in Poland. We cut each piece and make different type of stones; these are either cabochons, balls or so-called 'crown cut'® stones, which a registered industrial design.
Care:Amber is not a fan of prolonged exposure to sunlight. Try to keep it away from the direct heat. To keep it nice and clean use a cloth with warm water to remove any oil. Then dry the piece thoroughly using a gentle cloth. If you would like to bring back the shine to your favorite amber piece use a drop of olive oil to polish the stone, then clean with a dry cloth.
DiamondsDiamond is the hardest known stone across the elements. Our high quality diamonds (SI 1-2 clarity) are ethically sourced from our suppliers, who follow conflict free and socially responsible practices.
Care:A simple plan to maintain your diamond jewelry looking beautiful is to soak it in water with mild dish soap and then clean it gently using a soft toothbrush. Repeat that on a regular basis to keep them shining.
Other gemstonesIn our studio we use an array of precious and semi-precious stones. We source only the highest quality stones and then set them in solid gold and silver. We make sure that the gemstones were ethically sourced and made by happy hands.
Care:Since many gemstones are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times. We advise cleaning your precious stones with a clean, soft, damp cloth after wearing. Do not use tissue water or paper towels to clean gemstones as they can cause scratching
PearlsWe use high quality freshwater cultured pearls in our jewelry pieces. Please note that pearls need some extra attention to keep them in their best condition.
Care:Stones such as pearls should be cleaned with a soft and damp cloth only. Avoid exposing your pearl jewelry to extreme heat or cold as this may cause the stone to contract or expand and can loosen the setting. Keep your pearls in a separate pouch so that they avoid getting scratched.
