Product Variation from Image on Website.
Please note that due to the handmade nature of Barha Jewellery and the use of natural semi-precious stones and glass beads in our pieces, the colours, cut, shape and patterns in the stones and beads may vary from piece to piece.
A lot of care has been taken to photograph the jewellery to represent the colours of each piece as accurately as possible, however please account for variations in colour of the jewellery, as their appearance may be different in reality, depending on the type of screen or monitor you view the images on.
Please note that the size of each piece is indicated on each item page, and that the images are zoomed in and therefore do not represent the actual size of each piece.
It is up to the customer to ensure that the size of the jewellery is correct for them before making their purchase, as Barha Jewellery does not accept returns on jewellery that in the wrong size. Each piece of jewellery has wrist sizes in centimetres on each product page.
Barha Jewellery items are delicate, particularly items with threads, natural semi-precious stones and glass beads, so please handle item/s carefully. If dropped stones and beads may break, and if threads contact moisture they will fray and wear out.
Items must not come in contact with cosmetics, perfumes, hairspray and prolonged exposure to sunlight as this may cause tarnishing and discolouration.
Items must not come into contact with water, moisture or any liquid as this will cause tarnishing and discolouration. Remove all jewellery before showering or conducting household chores such as cleaning.
Metal components of each item can be cleaned with a soft jewellery polishing cloth.
We strongly advise you to store jewellery in a clean, dry environment, preferably in separate compartments of a jewellery box, or in separate plastic bags.
