FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN DID IT START?
Maroeska has been designing jewellery for over twenty years. She initially designed for herself, but later she started a commercial jewellery line. In 2020 Maroeska started working together with her daughter Mimi and together they continued the company.
WHAT IS MAROESKA’S SOURCE OF INSPIRATION?
Maroeska loves to wear design, not only clothes, shoes and bags, but especially jewelry. She likes jewelry that enhances someone’s personality. But more importantly, the jewel should bring joy and beauty to the person wearing it.
HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT JEWEL?
A jewel or any design by Maroeska is not just something. Her designs have a very strong character and are not suitable for everyone. The jewels are for people who are looking for something special, something personal. One of Maroeska’s statements therefore is “a jewel should do something for you”. Each person has their own quality that should be enhanced by the jewel. We are happy to help you make a choice.
CAN I TRY/SEE THE JEWEL IN REAL LIFE?
Maroeska organises open days in her atelier in Wormerveer, The Netherlands. By sendings us an email for the newsletter, you will be kept informed about the events. Also following her on instagram will keep you updated. Another possibility is getting in contact and making an appointment to see and try on the collection.
WHO MAKES THE JEWELLERY?
At the moment, the different jewels are made by three goldsmiths in two workshops in the Netherlands. Maroeska’s designs in metal have always been handmade by Maroeska and her husband. However, goldsmithing is a very fine delicate variation on the “rough” work that Maroeska did herself. She knows how it is made, but she likes to leave this specialist craftsmanship to the real goldsmiths who have been trained for it for years.
CAN I GIVE A PRESENT?
If you would like to give a jewel as a present, we ask for a small advanced payment. You will receive a giftcard with an image of the jewels and a message for the lucky to make an appointment to come to the showroom.
WHERE DO THE STONES COME FROM?
The stones that we use are from the German supplier Idar-Oberstein.
CAN I HAVE MY JEWEL CLEANED/ OR CHANGED?
We can have your jewel cleaned / polished at low cost. Jewelry that is worn every day could be cleaned about once a year. You can of course also have this done at a jeweler around the corner. If the jewel is sent to us, this must be done by registered mail. There are quite high costs associated with shipping, so cleaning at a jeweler around the corner is sometimes cheaper. You can always request a quote for changing your jewel. Sometimes, after years of wearing, changing the gemstone is a very refreshing idea.
CAN I PAY ON THE SPOT OR ONLY ONLINE?
When you buy a jewel online you will pay the full price immediately online. When you buy a jewel from the existing collection on the spot you can take it home immediately we ask for a payment on the spot with pin or electronic banking.
WHAT IS THE DELIVERY TIME?
We have a limited number of jewelery in stock. Sometimes a ring can simply be made slightly larger or smaller, but in some cases this is not possible and a custom-made new ring is produced. As a result, delivery times can occur from 4 days to more than six weeks. It depends on whether the stone can be found quickly. We naturally strive to finish your jewel as quickly as possible, and will always keep you informed of the progress.
