FAQ's

 

Process

What is Cast with Alchemy? How is it different from traditional jewelry processes?

My signature technique utilizes lost wax casting with cast in place gemstones. This process casts gemstones directly into the molten metal to create organic and unconventional designs. Unlike traditional jewelry, this process celebrates imperfection and unique handmade character making each and every piece one-of-a-kind. 

What metals do you work with? What is fairmined gold?

All my jewelry is made with eco-friendly metals. I use Fairmined or recycled gold, the leading industry choice when it comes to sustainable and ethical standards. I work in only 14K yellow gold and 14k rose gold. Our process will not allow us to work with white gold. 

What types of stones do you work with?

I source precious gemstones from suppliers that have strict ethical requirements. I also only work with certified conflict-free or recycled diamonds. Most of my work is designed with sapphires, diamonds, or rubies. I also occasionally work with opals, and moonstones. 

Conscientious Design

Valley Rose Jewelry is made by hand in my Santa Rosa studio. My unique design process allows me to create objects of lasting value with minimal environmental impact. I do not outsource any part of my production giving me total control of my proprietary process.

Care For Your Jewelry

Clean jewelry with warm water, a drop of mild detergent and a soft brush.

Precious Gemstones & Metals:Clean with an ultrasonic cleaner.

Pieces with Opal, Coral, Pearl or Turquoise: Never use an ultrasonic cleaner. Avoid harsh temperatures, chemicals and solvents.

Always store in a jewelry box.
