A lifelong dream

I always wanted to be a goldsmith and at age 16 I had this wonderful internship opportunity with a renowned goldsmith in Starnberg (Munich area). That sealed the deal for me and after finishing school I began to learn the craft. A 3 1/2 year apprenticeship was the beginning of a wonderful journey which earned me a certificate of apprenticeship.
I am a hopeless romantic and I love designing and creating jewelry that has meaning. I get so moved when people connect with one of my pieces on an emotional level. It makes me happy to be able to take raw materials and turn them into something beautiful and unique for someone to wear. After all these years of making jewelry I still get amazed when I see a finished piece… it is like a birth of some sort and it is puzzling that this just came from a place of creativity and workmanship.

I strive for excellent customer service and I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. If for any reason your order is not what you expected I am happy to refund your money. Please be so kind to notify me if you decide to return the item so that I can promptly process your request.

*Returned items have to be unworn speak in the original state received and jewelry box they came in.

**Made to order in your size ring returns have to be decided on a case to case basis.

***The only exception I have to make is when it comes to the return of earrings. Due to sanitary reasons I cannot accept returns on worn earrings. Unfortunately most of my earrings are one of a kind so changing out the post or wire is not an option. Thank you so much for understanding!

I encourage you to get in touch if you have any concerns with your purchase!
My jewelry comes with a limited lifetime warranty for my workmanship and all metalwork involved. I cannot warranty gemstones except for moissanites which come with their own warranty. This warranty does not cover damage as a result of abuse, misuse, loss or theft.
Due to daily wear, small accent stones may become loose over time and become dislodged. If a stone does fall out and you have the stone, I will repair the item free of charge. If the stone needs to be replaced I have to charge for the gemstone itself. My warranty will cover the labor to repair the merchandise. I will always make sure to work with you if this occurs within a certain time frame.
All warranties are voided if the item has been worked on by any jeweler other than Nangijala Jewelry.
As soon as the transaction is completed and funds are received I will send out a confirmation message, letting you know when your item will ship.

**Please be advised although priority express is often referred to as overnight in most cases delivery will take 2 days!

For international orders I ship USPS first class international package service (insured), which takes 6-10 business days but can take longer due to a potential hold up in customs.
*All import fees, taxes or VAT are the responsibility of the buyer. If you are unsure of what these are please check or
It is illegal to falsify USPS customs declaration forms and can result in fines and legal punishment. I hope you understand that I cannot mark your purchase as "gift" or declare a different value or content than what it actually is.

Thank you.
Additional policies and FAQs
While I pride myself in making quality jewelry I have to note that jewelry is not indestructible. Gemstones and precious metals experience wear over time and can show signs of damage when experiencing unintended handling.
Any finish on precious metals has a tendency to wear off. A high polish finish eventually becomes matte, a brushed finish polishes itself off and oxidation experiences wear as well. I am happy to refinish your jewelry for you at no cost. Please get in touch with me and you can send your pieces for a mini overhaul.

I would like to offer some information that is important to know when purchasing sterling silver jewelry.
It is quite natural for your sterling silver jewelry to tarnish over time just by itself. However this process could be accelerated when your sterling silver pieces come in contact with certain chemicals and materials.
Many types of lotions, cosmetics, hair products, and perfumes generally have a negative effect on the bright white finish. Contact with household chemicals, rubber, chlorinated water, or any substances that contain sulfur (e.g., mayonnaise, eggs, mustard, onions, latex, wool), will cause corrosion and tarnish. I always advise to remove sterling silver jewelry when doing household chores, washing hands, taking a shower or applying any type of beauty product.
In addition every human being has a different body chemistry which can also change due to medications, diet etc. Some people may experience that their sterling silver jewelry rapidly tarnishes while others can wear their pieces without problems for a long time.
Although wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of all your silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.
I like simple methods to clean jewelry and avoid chemical based jewelry cleaning solutions. A soft toothbrush and a natural, mild dish detergent works great on gemstones and metals. Afterwards I like to use canned air to dry my pieces and get any leftover water off from underneath gemstones. Sunshine® Polishing Cloths work nicely as well to restore a semi polish on precious metals. While each cloth contains a special chemical cleansing agent and non-scratching micro-abrasive I found it to be safe for the use on sterling silver.

Unfortunately I don't accept custom orders or extensive modifications of my existing designs. I have a wide variety of ready to ship or made to order pieces in my shop. I also list new work frequently, so keep an eye on my shop if you like!
