We use both post-consumer and conflict-free diamonds in MGG Studio jewelry. Post-consumer means that the diamond was extracted from an existing piece of jewelry and "recycled" into your brand new piece. This means that there was no mining necessary to obtain these stones- better for the earth and even better for you! Conflict-free means that the diamond was sourced in accordance with the Kimberly Process The Kimberly Process is designed to certify that the rough diamonds do not originate in areas where diamond trade is used to fund war or conflict.
We’re proud to design MGG Studio jewelry to stand the test of time. Here are some tips on how you can keep your pieces looking their best.
Overall, it’s smart to take your jewelry off when you’re sleeping, showering or washing your hands. It’s also a good idea to remove it when you’re going to do strenuous activities (like lifting weights) or come into contact with salt water or chlorine (think ocean/ swimming pool/ hot tub) or household chemicals (like bleach).

It's easy to care for most of your MGG Studio jewelry with just a few products that you have in your pantry right now! Visit this blog post to learn about easy peasy ecofriendly tips for maintaining your MGG Studio pieces.
There are a few MGG Studio pieces you should NOT polish or clean:
- oxidized (dark) silver - polishing will remove the dark patina.
- Pieces coated with a protective lacquer (like FAO, ELA, TALA, YAYOI, VASO earrings)- polishing or cleaning will negatively affect the protective lacquer.
- Pieces coated with colored resin (like FAO, ELA, TALA, YAYOI, VASO earrings)- polishing or cleaning may negatively affect the finish of the colored resin.
