About

About María ...

Before setting diamonds, I studied chemistry. By chance I discovered metalsmithing and never looked back. I went back to study and earned a silversmith diploma at the University of Puerto Rico and took jewelry classes with renowned jewelry designer Jeannette Fossas.

A period of experimentation and mastering the craft followed and finally I became a full time artisan and opened my first web store in 2008.

I create every piece from start to finish in the intimacy of my in-house studio, using high karat recycled gold, silver and other precious metals paired with the most stunning gemstones.

I draw my inspiration from nature and the organic flowing lines and exuberant colors of the tropical landscape that surrounds me.

I personally design, fabricate, set all stones and polish every piece to bring out their natural beauty.

My attention and love to detail and workmanship transforms what could be a simple ring into a heirloom piece, a bracelet into a work of art or a pendant into something that will be treasured through generations with timeless elegance.

Once you've experienced my level of service, you won't want to shop any place else. Imagine someone who can help you select the perfect gift or irresistible goodie for yourself, and who takes the time to personally gift wrap and ship the order to your specifications.

I'll be happy to advise on how to measure your ring size, customize any piece to suit your taste or help with any queries regarding gemstones and diamond 4 C’s.

All of my work is created using traditional metalsmithing techniques and is made from conflict-free stones and recyled gold and silver.

Please contact us here or at mariaburgos [!at] gmx.com if you are interested in custom work.

Jewelry Care
I recommend that you store your pieces in the satin pouch provided with your order. Proper storage helps to prevent scratching of stones and metal. It is best to keep products away from extreme heat or moisture. I recommend applying perfume or other sprayed substances before putting on your jewelry. Jewelry should be removed prior to showering. Sterling silver jewelry will tarnish through time and wear. To polish, use soft polishing cloth and gently rub cloth to jewelry. Alternatively, jewelry can be cleaned using toothpaste applied with the finger tips or with a soft cloth.

I use a wide variety of stones that have varying levels of hardness. The hardness of a stone impacts the manner in which it should be cleaned. Hard stones, such as diamonds, rubies and sapphires, can be cleaned with an ultrasonic cleanser or with jewelry cleansers available for sale. Many of our products combine stones that have unique surface qualities and hardness levels. Therefore I do not recommend using cleaning substances on our multi-stone products. These products should be cleaned with water and a toothbrush or cloth. For porous stones, such as coral, pearl and turquoise, and for antique charms, wood and other organic products, I recommend avoiding contact with water.
