Jewelry Care: Each piece is meticulously crafted by skilled artisans, resulting in variations and unique characteristics that are inherent to the artistry of this traditional craft. Keep separate, to prevent rubbing against other pieces, and avoid any cleaning chemicals to clean your jewelry. To preserve the longevity of the finish, please remove your jewelry before exercising, showering, swimming, or at the beach. To avoid discoloration, avoid the piece being in direct contact with perfumes, hair spray, lotions, and ocean water. Occasionally clean your jewelry with a soft cotton cloth

History: In Pre-Columbian culture, particularly in cultures like the Muisca, Maya, and Aztec civilizations, the frog was a symbol of abundance, fertility, and transformation. Frogs, due to their amphibious nature, are seen as creatures that inhabit or mediate between two worlds: water and land. This has often led them to be associated with transitions, change, and metamorphosis. The connection of frogs to water also has implications of life and fertility. Water is essential to life and is associated with birth and rebirth. In the Andean cultures, the frog is associated with the rains and water bodies and is believed to bring the rain that makes the crops grow, hence symbolizing abundance.
