Jewelry studio using recycled sterling silver

ENVIRONMENT

The Chocolate and Steel studio makes every effort to tread lightly on our planet.  The studio is powered by wind and solar energy through a program offered by our utility company.  We use recycled paper goods for our packaging and store and reuse any other shipping materials we receive.  The studio is stocked with reusable plates & utensils so nothing is thrown away.

MATERIALS

Our manufacturing processes are also eco-friendly. All jewelry pieces are made with recycled sterling silver, even the gold vermeil option is recycled sterling silver with 14kt gold over it.  We avoid harsh chemicals in our manufacturing whenever possible.  And any pieces that do not pass our quality control are melted down and refined to be used again.  In addition, all of our jewelry is nickel free.

Our packaging is made with recyclable materials, including compostable bags for our wholesale accounts. 

MADE IN THE USA

All of our jewelry is made in the USA, even our chains are manufactured here in the states.  By keeping all aspects of our process in the US we help support our local economy.  Many of our employees are parents so our studio hours support the schedule needed to juggle both a career and a family.

Sterling silver does tarnish over time. The quickest fix is using a tarnish remover dip. Rinse in clean water and dry gently with a towel. Do not use a polishing cloth as that can remove the oxidation from the letters on the piece.
14kt gold vermeil can tarnish after long periods of exposure to sun and dust. When your piece tarnishes you may use a silver tarnish dip. Do not use a polishing cloth as that can remove trace amounts of gold from your piece.

Necklaces are worn at different lengths depending on the style of the necklace but also what you are wearing it with. The same style necklace looks VERY different if you wear it as a choker versus worn longer down the front of your dress.

These images shows where necklaces fall around an average woman's neck.  The model is a size small for shirts, is 5'4" and a bust size B.  Women with larger necks and/or busts should typically go up one size for a similar fit.


 bust with chain lengths

14” - “Collar” necklace.  This size is good for children, young adults and petite women as a collar/choker.

15” - This is the most common size for a choker necklace for most adults.  Our tiny mantra necklaces are typically this length.

16” For most adults this length falls just above the collarbone.  A small pendant would nestle in the hollow of your neck.  This necklace is common for pieces that don’t have a focal point, like our layering chains.  This length is standard length for a petite sized woman.

18” The most common length.  For the average woman this falls just below the collarbone.  For more petite women it will fit lower.  This length is the standard length for an average sized woman.  This length is popular for adding pendants which will hang over a crew neck.

*All of our necklaces that come on standard chains have the capability to be both 16" and 18" - see picture below.

 

20” This length is a good option for pendants.  This falls between your collarbone and your bust. This is another great every day wear option.  Perfect for a low, plunging neckline or if you want to wear it over a turtleneck.
