Giardinoblu accepts payments via PayPal system, the safest circuit for online transactions and instant payments.
All Giardinoblu jewels are made of nickel free materials and finishes. Feel free to buy the jewels that you love the most from Giardinoblu and wear them with joy and freedom. However, intolerance to nickel could be very high for some people and allergy could manifest also wearing nickel free bijoux If your intolerance is very high you will definitely have experienced that the only wearable metals for you are gold and steel. I don’t advise buying in our Boutique just in these cases.

Bronze is an alloy of different metals including copper.
When the copper reacts with your sweat and the acids from your skin, it produces copper chloride which is a green substance that could naturally turn green the skin more tight with bronze. Polishing your jewelry quite frequently and keeping your skin dry can reduce this chemical reaction.
Also consider that this reaction can change over time on skin and can be related to menses or other factors that change the acidity of epidermis.
Giardinoblu Jewelry is made in nickel free bronze or in sterling silver.
• Sterling silver is the metal of the feminine energy, it carries the energy of the Moon. Silver supports imagination and creativity and intuition, establishing a strong connection with past, present and future. Silver helps to share and express emotions and feelings supporting friendship and compassion.
• Bronze is a metal alloy made of copper and pond. Copper stimulates dreamlike activity and the raising of the whole worlds of unconscious images, symbols included. It also helps to let the emotions and feelings free without repressing them. Pond stimulates brain activity and contributes to calm emotions. It helps to enhance enthusiasm, trust and the courage to facing everyday challenges supporting the rising of your inner gifts and talents.
Giardinoblu Jewels are in Bronze and Sterling Silver. • Bronze is a metal alloy and the fact that it turns the color with time also depend on how the alloy is made and what is contains. Our bronze don't turn in green, however we recommend to taking care of your jewelry periodically, so they always be bright and shine. Here's some practical tips.
The metal of your jewel may lose its bright over time because of the natural chemical reaction between metal and oxygen called oxidation. But don’t worry, oxidation is just on the surface. Rubbing the metal with a lather cloth will bring back the original bright. For any additional caring, use just a few drops of silver or bronze cleaner that you find on the market.
There’s a specific page about this topic with few and simple steps to follow and products that I personally recommend here.
I can also realize your jewel with a special alloy with Palladium. They will don't need to polish, and they won't be affected by oxidation. If you like this idea, send me a message by using the purple cloud on the bottom right of every page on site before purchase, and I'll give you the quote and timing.
Sure! Make sure to email to email@example.com. I’ll be happy to reply within 24 business hours and star to work with you.
