What is our jewellery made from?
High Grade Stainless Steel
Why Stainless steel?
Stainless steel requires little or no maintenance to keep it looking new; you can occasionally wipe it with a soft cloth to retain its luster.
Stainless steel does not tarnish or rust. It is very durable and more scratch resistant than other metals such as gold and silver.
Stainless steel is hypoallergenic therefore making it a great choice for those with metal allergies and sensitivities.
How many characters can be engraved?
Characters differ depending on the jewellery chosen to engrave. The website will not allow you to type in more characters than what we can fit onto the jewellery piece.
How the engraving works
Each order is designed and laser engraved upon request. We do try and get each piece as perfect and pretty as possible but alignment is never 100% perfect, this is what makes each order unique and special.
My “Samsara Stories” bracelet differs to my original Samsara Bracelet?
Our original Samsara Bracelets were designed by us and produced in bulk, therefore being machine printed/stamped. Their font therefore giving a deeper stamp like letter effect. Due to continuous quality irregularities and a massive demand for personalized bracelets we invested in our engraving system and now personally engrave all bracelets at our office in George. Engraving is more delicate, permanent and personal.
Can I choose my own fonts?
Fonts used are chosen to match and fit the aesthetic of our brand. A cursive and plain option is available online and we then choose fonts to match your lettering fonts. However should you want to choose your own font you can email us at email@example.com to request a font sheet. The same applies to icons.
Icons & Symbols
When ordering online there is a drop down icon menu. We do take care when selecting icons however should you want to request an icon sheet you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We do accept requests for icons and designs not on our icon sheet, however please keep in mind that this will add to the delivery time of your order.
What if I don’t want anything engraved
Please leave engraving blank when selecting your item on the online store. Any text entered will be engraved.
Something on the website is confusing me
You can still process your order by selecting the required item, however you are most welcome to leave the engraving blank and add a note in under “Special notes” at the checkout and request us to contact you via email to confirm engraving.
Can you send me a proof of my design before engraving
No we do not send proofs. The design is done on the actual engraver and by sending a proof and waiting for a reply or changes holds up all the other orders and delays productivity. Designs are done with love and heart and to match the aesthetic of our brand. Your are most welcome to request font and icon sheets or send through designs via email which we can use as a reference but will however not be a direct copy. An additional design fee of R100 on specialised icons and complicated custom designs, this may also add to your delivery time
How long before I receive my order?
Jewellery is engraved individually upon order. Please note that no preference can be given to orders and they are processed in the order in which they come in. We do try and get orders out as soon as possible and have a 2-5 working day off peak dispatch policy. Thereafter depending on your area a 2-4 day delivery period should be taken into account for Aramex delivery.
