MARIA TASH designs live at the intersection of fashion, jewelry, and beauty. Each piece is made to fit the wearer comfortably, like a second skin. With extraordinary attention to detail, Maria creates pieces that are eye-catching from every angle with gemstones that offer maximum brilliance.
Maria seeks out the highest quality gems in the world to bring beauty and sparkle to her exquisite jewelry designs.
All MARIA TASH white diamonds are sourced from the Diamond Trading Company and all vendors within its network comply with De Beers Group's Best Practice Principles which require operating to specific ethical, professional, social, legal, and environmental standards.
To create the ideal shade of blue, pink, and rose purple, natural VS2 or higher clarity stones are color enhanced through a process involving high pressure and high temperature – the only permanent color treatment process that exists today. Our colored diamonds are ethically sourced and comply with the United Nations Resolutions and corresponding national laws.
Opals are semi-precious stones, typically with a whiter base that brings out the blue, green, and pink iridescent shading known as their fire. In our jewelry, Maria coordinates opal fires with gold colors for the most impact; pink fire to rose gold, blue fire to white gold, and green fire to yellow gold.
Turquoise are semi-precious stones with a blue or blue-green color. Our turquoise is natural and sourced from mines in Arizona or New Mexico. We never use imitation versions of the stone.
We source freshwater cultured pearls for our jewelry. Cultured pearls are formed when an irritant is manually introduced into an oyster which activates the formation process.
We are dedicated to seeking the finest materials and only use 14 and 18 karat gold. As a luxury piercing brand, it is important to choose hypoallergenic, nickel-free gold that does not irritate your piercing and the surrounding area. For this reason, we combine our gold with alloys that are not known to cause sensitivity, such as replacing nickel with palladium.
Our settings are low-profile and sit close to the skin so our jewelry looks striking from every angle.
Invisible: Designed by Maria herself, our invisible setting isolates a diamond in the most minimal setting possible. Precision setters carefully push specially designed prongs in to hold the stone securely in place so it appears to float on top of the skin.
Scallop: In this setting, a gemstone fits tightly in a metal basket attached to a metal base. Our scalloped set jewelry tends to include intricate engraved detailing for 360° of beauty.
Floating: A jump ring is placed through a drilled hole in the diamond to give it a floating effect.
Keep your MARIA TASH jewelry radiant with a few easy tips.
- Restore diamond or gold shine by using an extra soft toothbrush and mild soap to wash away any residue.
- Organize your pieces with care so that they do not collide, which can result in nicks and scratches.
- Avoid exposing your jewelry to harsh chemical cleansers or alcohol-based perfumes that may affect the finish.
