Frequently Asked Questions

Zany&Shy

Part zany; part shy, we are inspired by two sides of a personality—one confident and a little wild, the other soft and vulnerable. Learn more about us here.

Our business operates out of Barcelona, Spain, but our suppliers and manufacturers are located worldwide. For us, the quality and sustainability of our materials are paramount which means choosing to work with companies that align with our values. However, as the sustainable jewelry industry grows and develops, we hope to work with more companies, supporting us to lower our carbon footprint even further.

Our jewelry is made-to-order, manufactured in a family-run factory in Italy. We make regular visits to the factory, building relationships with the skilled artisans who create each unique piece by hand.

Diamonds & materials

Ethics and sustainability are just as important as creating beautiful luxury items, so we do everything to ensure our materials are sourced responsibly. Our suppliers are Madestone (Belgium), Chatham (USA), and Swiss Diamond Vision(Switzerland). All of our suppliers and manufacturers share similar values of fair working conditions and environmental responsibility.

By using lab-grown diamonds and gemstones in our jewelry, we can create beautiful pieces that last forever but also show our respect for the world and its communities.

Sadly, traditional diamond mining negatively impacts everyone involved, whether through unfair working conditions, community displacement, depletion of vital resources, or the toxic byproducts of mining.

Instead, we choose to use lab-grown diamonds and gemstones that minimize our impact on people and the planet. For example, we use carbon-neutral suppliers that don't pollute the environment, discard waste into local water sources, or participate in the geopolitical negative side effects that typically surround large-scale diamond mining.

As a bonus, lab diamonds are also chemically, physically, and aesthetically the same as traditionally-mined diamonds. Win-win!

To learn more about our decision to use only lab-grown diamonds and lab-grown gemstones, read this blog post.

Lab-grown diamonds and gemstones are structurally and fundamentally identical to their traditionally mined counterparts, but despite this fact, cost significantly less. This is largely due to the difference in process costs (pulling a single diamond from the earth has huge costs associated with it). As you'd expect, lab-grown diamonds are far more cost-effective to create as we don't need to rely on thousands of years and the force of nature to produce them.

This allows us to offer the highest-quality sustainable jewelry ethically made at a fraction of the cost.

In their essence, absolutely nothing. Lab grown diamonds are now recognized as diamonds with the differences unnoticeable to the human eye. You wouldn’t be able to spot a lab diamond next to a natural diamond and their makeup is the exact same, but they differ in the origin.

Jewelers need to claim whether their diamonds are natural or created in a lab, so the best way to confirm is to look for the certification. All lab grown diamonds over 0.5 carats come with IGI certification.

Yes! We use 18k recycled solid gold because we want your jewelry to last. By choosing high quality-quality materials like this, Zany&Shy jewelry will withstand time and can be passed on through generations—a key part of our sustainable fashion pledge.

No! Offering high-quality fine jewelry is important to us, so our designs are never plated or filled. While plated gold may still fade over time, your recycled 18k gold pieces will maintain their shine even with daily wear. This  is why we only use solid gold with all Zany&Shy pieces.

Recycled 18k solid gold is non-corrosive, which means you can wear your Zany&Shy jewelry in water. However, remember that gold is still delicate and should be cared for appropriately, particularly as it may lose its shine with extreme water exposure.
