about us

We are a female owned brand originating in Barbados. COCO's journey first began in May 2021, handmaking earrings and beaded necklaces. After about a year, inevitable growth presented choices that had to be made - continue handmaking jewelry or dip into the world of importing jewelry collections.

At COCO, our goal is to inspire women to feel confident on an everyday basis. Our jewelry can be trusted to be sensitive skin safe, meaning you never have to worry about irritation or tarnishing. We want our jewelry to elevate your already beautiful person, while adding a minimalist flare that can be recognized from miles away.

Jewelry materials

COCO Jewelry is loved by sensitive skin. We make sure that our jewelry is hypoallergenic through extensive on person testing before any pieces are released.

Our jewelry is:

18k gold plated sterling silver (gold vermeil), 18k gold plated stainless steel or 925 sterling silver.

Your favorite COCO pieces can be worn in the shower or ocean; however we recommend limited exposure to harsh chemicals such as perfume or cleaning products to extend the life of your jewelry.

It is natural for gold plated jewelry pieces to fade over time due to exposure to various substances, friction and wear etc. We give no guarantee that our jewelry will look the same forever, but following the provided care instructions can give you piece of mind about keeping your beauties, well…beautiful.

what does it all mean?

Gold Vermeil

925 Sterling Silver is covered with a layer of 18k gold. This is also known as gold vermeil and has a high durability. For a jewelry piece to be considered vermeil, it must have a base metal of 92.5% sterling silver, and gold with a purity of no less than 10 karats. 

18k Gold Plated Stainless Steel

Though stainless steel is a less valuable base metal, it is still sensitive skin safe. You may notice it is heavier than our sterling silver items.

925 Sterling Silver

Metals such as copper are added to sterling silver to create a strong, hypoallergenic base for jewelry. This ratio is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals.

High
Quality

We work with trusted sources and extensively test our items on-person to ensure COCO pieces are completely hypoallergenic. Taking care of your keepsakes means you’ll get to enjoy gorgeous quality for years to come.
