About

Piccola Jewelry - Handcrafting your Individuality

Chandra Greatti is the Owner Designer and Maker behind Piccola Jewelry, specializing in uniquely personalized pieces using quality elements: sterling silver, gold fill and semi-precious stones in Fall River, Nova Scotia.

ALL PIECES ARE TRULY HANDMADE - if the power goes out, as long as there is light, I keep working! All metal is hand cut and filed, the names embedded in the metal by carefully hand stamping each letter individually using a hammer and steel alphabet stamps. I don't subcontract the production of my items to a number of labourers or mass produce my items using a computerized engraving or laser machine.

Last updated on July 13, 2016
I'm Chandra, the proud owner of Piccola Jewelry. I design and create each personalized piece by hand just for you using quality elements: sterling silver, gold fill and semi-precious stones in my Fall River, Nova Scotia workshop.

I've been creating custom keepsakes since 2011. All metal is hand cut and filed, the names embedded in each piece by carefully hand stamping each letter individually using a hammer and metal alphabet stamps.

Why buy from Piccola?

Piccola Jewelry strives to create affordable, quality jewelry pieces, handmade with care and attention to detail. Designed with a minimalist, delicate aesthetic, our modern keepsakes can be worn for years to come as a bold or subtle statement of individuality.

Support Ethical Handmade - You can feel confident about supporting small, handmade business. Many personalized jewelry pieces that you'll find elsewhere are made by machine and/or in questionable labour conditions using lower quality metals.

I love working with each customer to find just what they are looking for - whether it's a special gift or the perfect something for yourself.

I am discriminating about final product - if a completed piece does not meet my standard, it is recycled. I don't send what I wouldn't wear myself.

Refunds and Exchanges
ORDER CANCELLATION POLICY:
Once you submit an order, I may begin creating your piece right away. As such, I will likely not be able to cancel your order if you change your mind. Once made, none of my items can be "put back on a shelf" for re-sale.

STAMPED/CUSTOM ITEMS:
Custom items that have been stamped cannot be returned or refunded, unless the item is faulty (broken) or does not match the order details.

IF ITEM RECEIVED IS NOT WHAT WAS ORDERED:
If the item received does not match what was ordered, i.e. incorrect text, birthstone or metal color, customers must contact me within 7 business days of receipt of merchandise. Buyer will be offered a full refund or exchange. After 7 days of receipt, all sales are final.

IF YOUR JEWELRY IS FAULTY:
If an item breaks, the buyer must contact me within a reasonable time frame. In most cases a full refund, exchange or repair will be offered (depending on the time frame). This will be dealt with on a case by case basis and the buyer may be responsible for shipping charges.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:

Q: Will the letters on my keepsake be perfectly straight?

A: All pieces are hand stamped into the metal using individual steel alphabet stamps and as such, slight variances will occur in spacing and depth of letters - particularly those pieces that are hammered after stamping. Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos.

Q: I see a piece listed in Sterling Silver, but I'd like it in Gold instead. Is is possible to get it made in another metal?

A: Yes! Any item listed in my shop can be made in Silver or Gold Fill. Feel free to contact me to begin the process of making your custom piece.

Q: What Materials do you use?

A: I want to ensure each piece has a lovely, quality look and feel that our customers will be happy to wear for years to come.

The metals used in my pieces are 925 Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Fill.

A little more about gold fill:

-Gold fill is NOT gold plated.
-Gold fill has the same look and feel as solid gold.
-Gold fill is brass or copper, covered by layers of karat gold in a mechanical bonding process.
-Gold fill is much more valuable and tarnish resistant than gold plated.
-Gold fill does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
-Anyone who can wear gold, can wear gold filled without worry of allergic reaction.
-Gold fill will last as long as 14K solid gold.

STONES - I source semi-precious and natural stones in our pieces. This is a deliberate design choice, as natural stones vary in size, color, shape - each different, like the people they represent.

PEARLS - Pearls used in all designs are freshwater - not glass.

Q: How Do I care for my jewelry?

A: When exposed to air, sterling silver may develop tarnish over time (a darkening of the metal). This tarnish is easily removed regularly by using sterling silver polish pads or cloths (can be purchased at any major department store). Store in a soft cloth bag or airtight plastic bag to slow the tarnish process of silver. Gold filled pieces will not tarnish.

A soft, lint-free cloth not embedded with harsh abrasives may be used to maintain the silver's lustre.

Handle gently and never use baking soda or toothpaste to clean as these may scratch the surface.

Do not immerse in chlorine water (pools) or salt water.

All metals, pearls and natural stones are sensitive to skin products; removing your jewelry prior to putting creams/lotions/sunblock on is always a good idea.

Q: Can you make something that I don't see on your site?

A: I love custom requests. Contact me to begin the process of creating your ideal piece of jewelry or special gift.
