All of our Stone Collection jewelry should be worn and handled with care!

Every aspect of the pieces in our Stone Collection are fabricated, assembled and finished by hand.
And we have specifically chosen to use unique, natural materials and gemstones whose properties feature
natural texture, inclusions and coloring that can differ from stone to stone. Similarly, gold
is a soft metal, which will naturally scratch, and show wear and patina with time.
Many of the gemstones in the jewelry will crack, shatter or break if dropped or hit against a hard surface.

We recommend cleaning and storing the jewelry with a soft cloth designed especially for use with jewelry.
We advise that perfume, lotions, oils and any other beauty products not be used near the jewelry.
Please be careful to avoid exposing jewelry to household chemicals and cleaning
products, which may also damage the stones and / or gold.
Please do not wear the jewelry while swimming or bathing.

As stated, each piece is carefully crafted with attention to quality. Despite this, with wear your
Kathleen Whitaker piece may need to be repaired. Please contact us at
regarding the nature of the wear and required repair. Unless deemed a defect of
fabrication in creating the piece, repair costs are the responsibility of the customer.
We can provide an estimate of costs (inclusive of labor, materials, shipping/insurance) once received.
When shipping such repairs, please note Kathleen Whitaker Inc is not responsible
for the item (during transit) until it is received.
