Parian is a form of porcelain, named for the Greek island of Paros, known for its super fine, bright white marble. Hold on tight for the science bit… it has a more vitrified finish than standard porcelain because of its high feldspar content, which basically means it had a very dense fused structure. That means that it is super strong, so the perfect material for jewellery and it will happily endure the every-day wear and tear you expect from your high quality hand-made jewellery. Even better, because parian jewellery is ceramic, it is completely stain resistant and can be cleaned with soap and water just like your favourite mug
