All you need to know about your new jewellery!
What is it made out?
The majority of our exclusive jewellery is made out of Nylon. Nylon is a special type of innovative plastic which is strong and resistant. It is flexible, so it does not break, crack or chip. It is shock resistant and waterproof and hypoallergenic. Perfect for those allergic to metals
How is it made?
All Varily's accessories are 3D printed. They're made using laser-3D printers which make them strong and detailed. I design the product and prepare the file for the printer using a 3D modelling software. I then send the file to print. The objects come out of the printer white and rough. The pieces ate hand finished and individually dip dyed to make unique and artful pieces of jewellery
Can we customize jewels?
Yes! Every VARILY piece is fully customizable in color and shades. We can offer specific ring sizes.
For custom order we will use the same pigments and shades but differences will occur, but that's the beauty of owning a one-off pieces.
The earring hooks are made out of sterling silver, which is an-allergic (they won't give any allergic reaction, irritation or infection). All the metal work is made in Italy and Holland and the findings are made in Australia or Italy. We can so guarantee that the alloys are excellent quality and will not trigger allergic reaction.
Nylon pieces are very safe, made from polyamide and dyed with a-toxic, an-allergic fabric pigments.
VARILY is proud to be a hypoallergenic jewellery brand
Are square rings comfortable?
Our Vertigo cocktail rings have unique squared shanks. Square rings are very comfortable when the size is right. When the size is exact the corners sit between fingers and they are seem-less. These exclusive rings are very light weight which makes them very comfortable and wearable for anyone. Squared rings are a good fit for people with larger knuckles or enlarged bones.
Will the color fade / stain?
No! The pieces are dyed by hand using fabric pigments( a-toxic and an-allergic). They are dip-dyed into boiling pigment, then in a fixative solution to fix the color and stop it from running. They are then waterproofed using a special sealant. They are sun proof up to 4-5 weeks of direct sunlight.
Can they get wet?
Yes, they can get wet, they are waterproof. But as every piece of jewellery, better take them off while washing your hands, they can get dirty overtime. Golden rule: jewellery is the last thing to put on and the first thing to take off. If they get dirty they can be cleaned by soaking them in warm soapy water for few minutes and pat dry.
Are they fragile?
NO! Nylon is a very resilient material and it won't break by daily use. It makes our unique jewelry strong and wearable.
They feel extremely light but they are surprisingly strong.
How to care
Love your new contemporary fashion jewellery and want it to live forever? Follow these steps:
- take it off for bathing, swimming and washing your hands
- if it gets dusty just soak it in warm soapy water for 10-15 seconds and pad-dry.
Is it just 3D printed?
3D print is just a small part of the process. The inspiration and hand sketch is the first step, and can take months. Once the design is finalised, it is transferred to the computer and rebuilt with a 3D modelling software. Valeria creates the file ready for the printer, and sends it out to print.
The pieces come out of the printer white and rough, they are then finished and primed by hand.
Now it's time for the dying process. All colour recipes are created and formulated in house using textile pigments. Some pieces can take up to 4 baths to achieve the shades and gradients. Once the pieces are coloured, a waterproof and UV proof sealant is added on the surface. All the findings and metal parts are made by hand.
It's plastic, why is it not cheaper?
Plastic is a very broad term and includes hundreds of different materials. The material we use is a very strong yet flexible nylon, which absorbs the pigments and react very well to daily use.
The careful and conceptual design, the meticulous manufacture process and the detailed quality control contribute to the creation of high quality, unique pieces.
All findings are handmade using sterling silver. When using natural stones we like to choose high quality, sustainable and exquisitely cut gems.
Hand sketching, conceptual design, operating 3d modelling software, hand dying and goldsmith skills are just part of the array of skills involved in the making of Varily pieces, that take these adornments value beyond the choice of materials involved.
Is it Environmentally friendy?
We care about Nature, and thats's why we carefully chose our materials and processes to be as respectful as possible, minimising our footprint. Nylon is a man-made plastic that can be recycled. The process of 3D printing produces minimal waste, due to the possibility to reuse excess powder and the fact that we only print the single pieces. We use non-toxic dyes for the coloring process, which is used with no waste, due to the small batch nature of our brand.
Our packaging and marketing material are made of paper, from FSC sources and recycled when possible.
Do you offer gift wrapping?
Whether it's a gift for yourself or a loved one, all Varily's pieces come in branded packaging. You'll receive your piece, a card explaining how to care and refresh it if needed, a postcard to tell you a bit of the inspiration behind your jewelry and a small thank you gift.
