Amsterdam Jewelry by Riverstones

If you love Amsterdam as much as we do, this is the gift you want to buy yourself (or a loved one for that matter). We especially love their necklaces, bracelets and earrings, dedicated to the capitals of the World. They call it “Beauty of the City“, available in plated gold & silver or 14K gold. Just to point out that their 14K gold is responsible, meaning that it is traceable and has been obtained with respect for people and nature. Love it!
