"Tona" Bezel Sapphires Bead Pendant
Believed to mean frog in the Taino language, our Tona design is just that interpreted in modern, wearable shapes. Yari beads are gold interpretations of the shell, stone, ceramic, glass, bone or metal artifacts found across the Caribbean. Each bead is distinct, with incisions and patterns that reflect the maker´s environment and beliefs. They are unique in that their loops are hidden so that you can stack them on the chain of your choice to create your own beaded story of ancestry and remembrance.

Sizing, Jewelry Care & Repairs
14K Gold, Diamonds and Gemstones
Please use caution when applying hairsprays, lotions, colognes and perfumes when wearing your İTÄ fine jewelry. These harsh chemicals may cause the precious metals to tarnish and stones to absorb damage. If needed, clean in cool water with a soft brush to remove the oils from daily wear. We recommend a periodic professional cleaning.
If your İTÄ piece has enamel please keep it away from extreme cold or heat to avoid potential melting or cracking. Constant exposure to all types of water as well as lotions, oils or creams, may cause the enamel to weaken over time. We suggest taking off before extreme sun exposure.
Like most fine chains, our chains can be delicate and should be treated carefully. Do not pull or tug on them and be careful when detangling.
Storing your piece
Jewelry, especially gold and precious gemstones, scratches with daily wear. We hope this means you love your pieces as much as we do. Use our pouches and boxes to store them individually and protect your jewels when not being worn.
We want you to love your İTÄ piece forever. Should the need arise, please contact Client Care for information regarding repairs. Repairs will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
If you need to know your ring size, you can order our free ring sizer tool here. We can ship this to you at no cost.
For all ring, bracelet or other resizing inquiries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that some ring styles cannot be resized.
