Jewelry FAQ

Where are Misty Comet pieces made?

Misty Comet pieces are designed and prototyped in house by our team of 2 in Seattle, USA. Our final pieces are ethically and sustainably hand made in Thailand by skilled artisans who are paid a living wage and work in a safe, ergonomic environment.

What materials does Misty Comet use?

We care deeply about our planet at Misty Comet, so we are passionate about using sustainable high end materials.

We use 100% recycled tarnish resistant sterling silver and 100% recycled 18k gold for our vermeil.

Are Misty Comet pieces nickel-free? Non-toxic?

Yes; we are happy to say all of our pieces are free of nickel. They are also free of lead, cadmium, and all other toxic substances commonly found in metal jewelry.

What is Gold Vermeil?

Gold Vermeil is the process of layering gold on top of silver, similar to gold plating that is done to non-precious metals. Gold Vermeil is thicker than normal gold plating, with the method requiring at least 2.5 microns of gold thickness; while plating can be as little as 0.1 micron. This leads Gold Vermeil to be more long-lasting and resilient than typical gold plating. Gold Vermeil is also a nickel-free plating method, vs regular gold plating which generally uses nickel in the plating process.

What efforts does Misty Comet make to be sustainable?

  • We follow our hearts instead of micro-trends. We aim to make unique pieces that can be treasured forever.
  • We offer limited releases to ensure there is no leftover "dead stock" - one of the biggest contributors to fashion pollution
  • We work with a high end production partner. This ensures that our pieces will be high quality; something to cherish, not something that is cheaply made and is quickly discarded. Our manufacturing partner's other clients have products in Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and other high end department stores; so you can be sure they make the highest quality pieces!
  • Our production partner is Fairmine Certified which ensures the most ethical and sustainable practices possible in sourcing and production -- including the 100% recycled sterling silver and gold used in our pieces.
  • We use packaging made from sustainable materials that can be reused to safely store and travel with your Misty Comet pieces.

What is Fairmined?

From the Fairmined website:

Fairmined certified gold comes from artisanal and small-scale mining organizations certified to the Fairmined standard. This certification guarantees that the gold has been extracted in harmony with nature, human dignity and sustainable development, contributing to the transformation of lives in these mining communities.
