FAQs

Why do I need a memi charm carrier?

Our charm carriers - necklace or bracelet, are designed specifically to allow you to thread charms easily onto them and to position them on your carrier yourself. All of our charms have a bead filled with a special silicone, that holds the charm in place. The carrier has a specially designed I-bar, that easily slides through the bead, as you slide the charm on. This design allows you to add and remove charms without having to go to a jeweller, and therefore gives you the ability to collect and grow your jewellery.

What birthstones are used in memi jewellery?

We use only genuine SWAROVSKI crystals for our birthstones. These are precision cut and made according to the highest quality control.

What Diamonds are used in memi jewellery?

All our diamonds are genuine, manually sorted to meet the precise requirements of our jewellery. Diamonds are selected based on their white colour and special cut to bring out the best in our jewellery. All our diamonds are certified to be conflict free, conforming to the international conventions and laws governing the sourcing of diamonds.

Are me·mi products gold plated or solid gold?

me·mi is a fine jewellery collection made only using precious metals and is not base metal plated. You may order your items in 9k solid yellow, rose or white gold or silver.

What is 9k Gold?

Gold is a very soft metal and it is therefore very rare to find any jewellery made with pure gold. 9k gold is the most common gold sold in England, Australia and South Africa and other parts of Europe, where the USA uses mostly 10k and 14k gold.

Most jewellery is made from a mixture of pure gold and other metals. 9k equals 9 parts pure gold out of 24 or 37.5% pure gold.
