Karpos ring is one of the most extraordinary jewels in Sthenos collection. Semi-open and with a grainy texture, its materials stand out and contrast with each other in an exquisite way: 18kt gold that surrounds a dark semiprecious stone. A jewel made by hand in a sustainable way, whose artisans have managed to find the perfect balance between textures, shapes and tones.
Barcelona-based PaolaQ Jewelry was founded by the Colombian designer Paola Quintana. As the direct descendant of the Italian sculptor Cesare Sighinolfi, creativity seems to run in her blood. Fascinated by the precious stones found in her native country Colombia, Paola started her career in fine jewellery working for prestigious companies of the likes of Piaget before setting out to launch her own brand in 2014. With PaolaQ, she now creates unique fine jewellery crafted by local artisans in Spain.

• When you're not wearing your jewelry you should keep them in a safe and secure place, like your bedroom. • Do not keep your jewelry in the bathroom because all of the moisture from your shower and sink will make the sterling silver pieces tarnish extra quickly. • Jewelry boxes are a great place to keep your jewelry, but you should keep in mind that it does not protect the sterling silver pieces from tarnishing and oxidation. • Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap, perfume, abrasive products. • Do not wear jewelry when in the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering. • Chlorine, detergents, oils, moisturizers & perfumes can all cause tarnishing and damage. • Remove jewelry when doing household tasks. • Avoid impact with hard surfaces as much as possible. • Make-up, perfume & hairspray all contain chemicals, which may dull the finish of your jewelry. • Gently wipe jewelry clean with a soft cloth after each wear to remove make up and oils (from skin). • Coil chains gently to prevent damage in storage. • Don’t yank or pull chains.
