Butterfly Earring Backs
Are your pearls real?
Yes, all our designs use freshwater pearls that have been hand harvested.
Do you use solid gold?
Yes, all our pieces are made with either 14k or 18k solid gold which are certified and stamped.
What's the difference between solid gold and gold-plated jewellery?
Solid gold jewellery is much more durable than gold-plated jewellery,
and lasts years in comparison. It is also naturally hypoallergenic which means it is very unlikely to cause any kind of reaction on your skin.
Can I get one of your pieces in a different colour/length?
Yes, most of our designs are customisable. Simple contact us with your request. Please note, this usually takes between 4-6 weeks.

How do I look after my La Grotta jewellery?
To keep solid gold in top condition, rinse it carefully in warm soapy water and dry by wiping gently with a soft cloth.
Pearls should be put on after you have applied your perfumes or body lotions and should be wiped with a soft cloth after every wear.
To ensure your diamonds always sparkle, we recommend having them professionally cleaned every six months.
Can I shower/swim in my pearls?
You can shower in our La Grotta Co pieces so long as you use mild soap. The only exception is pieces made with silk thread, like our Cara mini pearl choker. Water droplets weaken the thread and could cause damage, so we don’t recommend wearing these designs in the shower.
We don’t recommend wearing our jewellery when swimming in a pool or the sea, as the salt and chlorine can damage both solid gold and pearls.
What happens if my jewellery breaks?
All La Grotta Co jewellery is covered by our complimentary two-year guarantee. We will repair or replace any pieces bought within this period free of charge. This does not include jewellery damaged by general wear and tear, any altered jewellery or any lost gems.
If your jewellery is damaged, please contact us with a photo of the issue and your order number.
