MATERIALS, WEIGHT + DIMENSIONS

  • Handmade with Miyuki Delica glass seed beads and 14ct gold-filled jump rings & ear wires
  • Feather light! Less than 1 gram each
  • Length: 4.7 cm including ear wires

They’re so light, you won’t notice you’re wearing them. They’re also flexible and made with super strong gel-spun polyethylene thread, one of the strongest fibre cords per diameter ever created.

We only use the most durable bead finishes, and our gold-filled ear wires won’t scratch like gold-plated will.

Super lightweight, flexible and strong is the ultimate combo for comfortable and travel-friendly jewellery.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

Think ‘Gatsby’ and images come to mind of flappers in fringed knee-length frocks, bobbed hair and cute bucket hats kicking up their heels on the dancefloor. Yep, our gold Gatsby Drop Earrings are a salute to the Art Deco designs and ideals of the Roaring Twenties.

With global economies bouncing back from WWI and emerging technology bringing new wonders like automobiles, radio, movies and aviation into people’s lives, it was a time of big change and possibility.

Young women of the time took the rule book on socially acceptable behaviour and threw it out the window, honouring their own individuality and personal autonomy above previously held values of duty, honour and sacrifice. Women around the world fought for the right to vote, to work and earn their own money regardless of their marital status, have access to contraceptives and to go to university.

Those fabulous fashions of the Jazz Age emerged to meet women’s needs as their consumer buying power grew and they refused to be restricted by old-fashioned clothing styles and stubborn parental expectations. The 1920s saw huge progress for women’s empowerment and sexual liberation around the world.

Our handmade beaded gold Gatsby Drop Earrings are a throwback to that time; a celebration of the freedoms, fashions and fun times treasured by those bold young women. Anything fun was the cat’s pyjamas, including ‘dudding up’ in flapper frocks, dancing the Charleston, drinking hooch (in speakeasies during prohibition in the States), smoking cigarettes and driving around with boys in jalopies.

We think you’ll agree that our five fabulous Gatsby Drop colours are simply the duck’s quack. They feature a sequence of swinging starbursts and diamond shapes with a refined gold highlight at the base. The jump rings and ear wires are all 14ct gold-filled for long-lasting delight.

Choose from these full length beauties or the mini version; either way, their elegant slim lines will enhance any outfit.

Quick answers

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN. WILL I BE ALLERGIC TO YOUR JEWELLERY?

Our jewellery is made of glass seed beads with 14ct gold‑filled, sterling silver or stainless steel findings (see above for what gold‑filled means). Our stainless steel ear wires are made of 316 surgical stainless steel.

Sugarberry Shimmy jewellery is 100% nickel-free – we've checked every single bead finish!

Each product page lists the materials in the 'Materials, weights + dimensions' toggle section.

If you’re generally allergic to gold, silver or stainless steel, you’re likely to develop an allergic reaction to our standard jewellery. However, we'd be happy to source some special ear wires just for you in a hypoallergenic metal like niobium. Contact us and we'll work out a solution for you.

We use only the finest quality materials in our pieces. In the unlikely event that you develop an allergic reaction to your Sugarberry Shimmy jewellery, please let us know.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

  • Your beautiful piece
  • Custom designed 8cm x 8cm x 2cm biodegradable gift box
  • Care instructions
  • For our handwoven pieces, a divine blessing card that aligns with the inspiration behind your piece.

If you’re buying more than one product, we can gift box them together or separately – we’ll ask you at checkout.

DOES BEADED JEWELLERY REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE?

A little, but it’s very simple. See our jewellery care page for our best advice on keeping your jewellery sparkly and fresh with minimal effort, and our eco- friendly cleaning hack for sterling silver that works in a flash!

CAN I GET MY JEWELLERY WET?

Yes! You can get our pieces wet, including the beads and the metal elements. However, some caveats apply…

Don’t wear your Sugarberry Shimmy jewellery in swimming pools, the ocean, or in the shower or bath.

Chlorine, the force of ocean waves and soap and shampoo build-up can all damage your jewellery or leave it looking less than fabulous.

Have a read of our jewellery care page for more on looking after your pieces.

WHAT ARE MY SHIPPING OPTIONS?

  • Standard registered parcel post within Australia: FREE for orders $80 and over.
  • Express post within Australia: $14 for all orders.

WHAT ARE YOUR RETURNS & WARRANTIES POLICIES?

Not quite right? All good – our 30-day No Questions Asked returns policy has you covered.

All our pieces are also covered by our exclusive 24-month Peace of Mind Warranty provided they’re worn as intended – described in our returns and warranty page.

WHAT IS GOLD-FILLED?

Gold‑filled is a solid layer of gold which is mechanically bonded to a base metal. The gold layer in gold‑filled jewellery is 5 to 10 times thicker than gold plating and looks the same as solid gold.

Even with daily wear, gold‑filled jewellery can last from 10 to 30 years. Up to 10 times thicker than gold plating but a fraction of the price of solid gold? We think gold‑filled is pure genius.
