About AlejandraGiannoni

On Etsy since 2014

Welcome!

My creative processes generally begin from a shape or a texture that I notice somewhere. The geometric and organic lines play and interact during the process of design and production.

I am captivated by the organic lines and shapes in any of a thousand and one things that I see in daily life - and as I work with them in my hands they turn into aesthetic and beautiful compositions in precious metal. Art, craft, geometry and nature all play a part in my creative undertaking, which is a spontaneous process fueled by my love for visual arts.

My work in this shop is a continuation of over 12 years of training, including studying several related goldsmith trades, plus researching in various branches of the trade with different teachers. I taught jewelry design at the University of Palermo in Buenos Aires, as well as in private workshops, and have also worked as a Designer and Coordinator of the Bijouterie production in Isadora (multinational accessories company).

It gives me great pleasure to create pieces here in my shop for you to enjoy.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

✓ - HOW CAN I FIND MY RING SIZE?
If you don't know your size the best way is going to a local jeweler or the nearest jewelry store to get professionally sized with calibrated metal sizers (in general they’d tell you for free). All other methods like printing a chart with real-sized examples from a website, or measuring the circumference with a string or paper strip, they all do have a large margin of error.
The options listed on my rings are US/CANADA measuring system. Let the jeweler helping you find your size know this, and if he/she cannot provide it in this measurement system you can convert sizes from other international measuring systems at this site> http://www.onlineconversion.com/ring_size.htm

Tips to make your measurement more accurate

Be sure to compare it with a ring same width as the ring you are ordering. Ring comfort depends mainly on the width of the ring. Wider rings tend to feel tighter than narrower ones.
Measure the chosen finger from the hand you will wear it. Each finger on each person’s hand has a different size and even left and right hands from the same person are different. It's always better to measure your hands when they're warm rather than cold. All hands do change throughout the year, smaller in cold weather and larger during hot days. Time of day can also affect sizing. Avoid measuring right after you’ve walk up, walked a lot or done exercise.
If you are in doubt, is always better to go for a slightly smaller than larger size.

✓ - WHAT DOES 'STERLING SILVER' EXACTLY MEANS?

Sterling silver -also named Silver 925- is the world’s most popular silver alloy. It consists of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. It is excellent for jewellery because it preserves the color, lustre and heft of pure silver and vastly improves its durability and hardness.
Pure silver (not alloy) will be tarnished in contact with the air very fast. Also, it will bend and break easily as its hardness won't resist the wearing of a jewelry piece. This is why sterling silver is the better alloy with the highest amount of pure silver and still durable and beautiful in color.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items are carefully wrapped not to get damaged in the shipping process.
An individual recyclable gift box is included for each product. You can see pictures in the About section.
The Custom Moons collection come in a handmade moon-themed gift box, very hard and good quality. You can see a video featuring these special packaging for these products in the About section.
A small brochure with 'CLEAN & CARE' tips is also included inside every box.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have some personal idea for a jewel, or you'd like a small (or big, why not?) change of any of my products, please feel free to reach me and I'll do all the possible to make your wish a reality!
Custom and personalized orders, as they were made especially for you, I cannot allow returns cancellations or exchanges in these cases. When a product has a date or a letter engraved, or made with a custom moon phase, it is considered to be a custom order.

Care instructions

Sterling silver is susceptible to tarnishing in the long term, a dulling that naturally and slowly occurs when silver reacts with Sulphur in the air or any other substances that contain it.
When jewelry is not worn it should be stored separately in a protective box or closed bag away from direct sun light. This will minimize scratches and prevent the sterling silver from tarnishing. Make sure that the storage area has low humidity. You can also place a piece of chalk or a container of silica gel to minimize tarnish.
Daily care should be taken to avoid the build-up of tarnish and keep the high shine of the sterling silver intact for decades. More info is included with the packaging in each product.
