MATERIALS, WEIGHT + DIMENSIONS

  • Handmade with Miyuki Delica glass seed beads and 14ct gold-filled ear wires & jump rings
  • Feather light! Less than 1 gram each
  • Length: 4.2 cm including ear wires

They’re so light, you won’t notice you’re wearing them. They’re also bendy and made with super strong gel-spun polyethylene thread, one of the strongest fibre cords per diameter ever created, and our gold-filled ear wires won’t scratch like gold-plated will.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

$10 from each pair of Queen of the Sea Starfish Earrings sold helps to keep our oceans clean!

You might not know its name, but if you love exploring rockpools in Australia as much as we do, you’ll be familiar with the sea star ‘meridiastra calcar’. Commonly known as cushion sea star, carpet sea star or eight-armed sea star, it has eight little arms and highly variable geometric patterns in bright oranges, reds, greens and blues. It’s abundant in tidal pools from southern Queensland right around New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia to south-west Western Australia.

Cushion sea stars are so well camouflaged that you have to squat down and look carefully in the rockpools and scan for them, even when you think there’ll be none. Once you spot one, its neighbours will instantly pop into view, and suddenly you’ll see a whole galaxy of adorable fat starfish in front of you. Yes, the collective noun for starfish is a’ galaxy’!

Sea star spotting is one of our favourite ways to be fully present and immersed in nature when we’re at the beach.

Just like their namesake, our Queen of the Sea Starfish Earrings have character. They hang slightly curvy and feature gilt-edged star tips. They come in four stunning geometric colour palettes, all with durable 14ct gold-filled earring hooks. Like all our pieces, our Starfish Earrings are feather-light and flexible for ultra comfort and travelling ease.

If you’re looking for some zing, our mesmerising Queens in fuchsia-turquoise fizz are just the ticket. Whichever wins your heart, wear your Queens with regal pride.

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?

Free standard registered shipping within Australia for all purchases over $80.

We use Australia Post registered parcel post for all shipping.

For detailed timeframes, please see our shipping page. Here are the basics:

  • Standard registered parcel post within Australia: $10 for orders under $80.
  • 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.
