Drapedinstone is committed to offering quality, worry free, natural stone jewelry. Faux knock-offs abound, especially in the metals, of jewelry findings. and may even be toxic. Countries like China have little or no regulation and making fakes has become an art form in itself (health effects to the uninformed buyer: they don’t care). That is why we felt the need to make a product that is safe as well as completely transparent in communicating all the component parts. We will gladly provide the origin and composition of every part of the jewelry we sell. We belong to a lapidary society and strive to stay educated about the rocks and minerals we use. Of course we will always be on the hunt for fascinating new types of stone and fossils and beads that will turn them into a beautiful piece of jewelry.
