Materials

Mountainside's goal is to have a jewelry line that is as environmentally responsible as possible. A few low impact practices which are already in place include sustainably sourced metals and stones, recycled and biodegradable packaging and low waste production. Additionally, vintage "deadstock" chains, clasps, and other items are used whenever possible to avoid buying newly created materials. All metals are sourced from reputable companies in the USA and are nickel & lead free. Many of the stones and beads used are repurposed from found pieces as well as being cut, carved, drilled, and polished by hand at a Lapidary work shop. Mountainside Jewelry is a proud member of the Santa Cruz Gem & Mineral Society. Certain designs may vary eventually due to availability of materials (such as chains or beads). Due to the nature of repurposed materials -  color, shapes, and markings may vary slightly. Specific measurements, chain lengths, and other such information are available upon request

 

Sliced Stone Collection:
All of the Sliced Stone pieces should be worn and handled with extra care! The stones have been specifically chosen to use because of their unique, natural properties which feature unusual or rough texture, inclusions, and coloring that can differ from stone to stone. Many of the gemstones will crack, shatter or break if dropped or hit against a hard surface. Avoid contact with water or other liquids. Store and wear these pieces with that in mind. Please communicate this to customers purchasing sliced stone styles to ensure safe keeping.
