While it is usually faster, please allow 5 to 7 business days for your refund to process into your bank account or back to your credit card.
What are cores?
Cores are interchangeable cylinders that can be worn in our jewelry. We make them with different kinds of minerals, woods, and resin. Our catalog is primarily comprised of cut stone cores, constructed mineral cores, and specialty mineral mix constructed cores. Each is made by hand and unique, so every Core will be slightly different than the others of its kind. Think sisters, not twins.
How are cores made?
All of our cores are made by hand using different methods for the different options:
-Cut mineral cores are made from larger pieces of the mineral that are cut on a saw and then worked into cylindrical cores and polished on lapidary machines.
-Constructed cores and mixed mineral cores are made with high quality minerals that are broken down by hand, hand built in our core molds, and held in place with a high quality, non-yellowing resin. We finish and polish all constructed and mixed mineral cores by hand on our lapidary equipment.
